  1. hey guys when i put the turbo coupe motor in what size muffler do i need and tailpipe, i want to get like a 5.0 lx tail pipe what size would be the best.

    thanks

  2. bigger is better! piping from the turbo back sould be 3 in, as far as tail piles and mufflers, usualy 2.5" is decent...i think the "SVO" style comes with 2.25 tips? i may be way off.
     
  3. 2.5" is suppose to be good for 250-300hp. The furthur back the smaller pipe is, the better. I am going to run a 3" downpipe to a full 2.5" exhaust, and I don't think there will be any gains going to 3" until I pass 300hp.
     
  4. we were just going to run a solid 3 inch pipe all the way to the back then the stock GT SVO dual tip on the driver side.
     
  5. probly a good idea...id bet a 3in single over the rear would be...interesting to navigate.
