2.5" exhaust options for 2.0L Duratec ZX3?

New ZX3 on the way, the stock exhaust will have to go, so I'm already shopping.

The Cosworth cat back sounds amazing, and that's what I'm leaning toward, primarily because its 2.5" and I'm thinking of a turbo kit, too. Steeda has a 2.5" as well.

Any other 2.5" kits? FocusSport is 2.25", and so is Magnaflow and MBRP.

Now, I noticed someone mention in the FAQ thread that D20 & D23 exhausts are interchangeable. Is that true from ZX4 to ZX3?

The Cosworth I would like is stated to fit the ZX4 ST 2.3L Duratec, and that's all. Anyone know if it can fit the ZX3 2.0L?

Also, the ZX3 I ordered has the factory street appearance package I, so I'm wondering if the change in rear fascia messes with exhaust tip mount point or positioning?

Thanks for any suggestions / help.

Sincerely,

Beetle

Cosworth cat back exhausts for ZX4 ST 2.3L Duratec look available to me here:

Just wondering if it could fit on a ZX3 2.0L Duratec w/ street appearance package I?

Eh. Not so fast. Sales rep from Steeda just told me that the Cosworth exhaust is discontinued.

Looks like Steeda's website is just out of date. Bummer.
