    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.

    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.
