    sound, a few ponies, build boost better/faster. make sure you get a 3" downpipe too. i would like to get a magnaflow catback but that's too expensive for me... so i'm getting a used flowmaster catback instead.

    Downpipe is the pipe that comes down from the exhaust manifold, and catback is just short for catalytic converter back, meaning everything after your cat.

    Rick, it all depends on what you want to do. If you just want a little gain, a few ponies, some sound, nothing too big, your 2.5" catback your planning would be great.

    If youre wanting performance, a 3" downpipe (what comes from the turbo, and goes to the catback), and a 3" catback would be the most desired.

    Remember, a free flowing exhaust is the most beneficial mod you could do to any turbo car. Im running my catback unbolted on my TC, sounds like crap, and is overly loud, but it works the best at the moment.
    It's Gumby's fault.
