Primary and secondary length are what determine powerband (exhaust-speaking), not cat-back. From there it's just diminishing gains. 2.5" systems generally provide the most bang-for-your-buck, but I preferred the FRPP/Borla as well for cost/sound. I only ended up going custom because I couldn't get the FRPP/Borla in time for last years show.

Creative, you constantly speak of doing dyno work yet you never seem to have data to show. If you've dyno-tested all of these components, it would be valuable for the rest of the community to be able to see the results.

installed my new tb i like it alot agree it pulls harder on top end and my rev match down shifts are smoother and faster i think it works really well and worth the money. ill look for a dyno and get some results up as soon as i can. i have some other mods so that could be why it might be working better for me also ill get a updated tune for the tb. just my thoughts.

I think it would be great to maybe get 2 Dyno pulls, 1 with the factory TB and one with the new one. That way we can actually see if any gains are present. I would also say that In between pulls you should drive around for ten minutes or so and let the computer "learn" again.

Definitely! I would consider this mod after dyno results have proven a gain but I can't justify it off of seat of pants verbal confirmation. Don't get me wrong, the more people that confirm the positive results the better but some of us like the proof in the dyno pudding lol.
