Steve is running 2.5 inch from the turbo back.. looks much cleaner without that stupid stock downpipe. He kept his legal with a 3 way cat about halfway back.. does the job of the 2 cat setup that the soob has stock.. even the cat is 2.5 in and out.. sounds cool. wan't very expensive either if I recall

its definetly larger than the stock downpipe
i am running straight exhaust no muff..
sounds very cool
just have a few joint leaks under the car to solve
but is relativly decent on the inside at 55mph not very loud

1.0-1.4L - 2.0"
1.5-1.9L - 2.5"
2.0-3.0L - 3.0"
For full race systems go .5" bigger.

2.5 " turbo back
maybe a little far from the engine
will find out next emiss. inspect
Sounds nice and quiet untill I open the tailgate.

In my opinion, I think I'm getting more gain out of the bigger exhaust than the FM, it's just there for noise.

The muffler is a 2.5 in and out as well.... some off brand of the turbosonic design its a striaght thru style but truthfully - we tested it in the muffler shop with stratpipe and then with the muffler installed. the only difference was at speed the muffler takes "the edge off the sounds" and allows a Very quiet ride.
The Smog test was very productive too. I was quite happy with it.
