You gotta have a 3" hi-flow cat or test pipe to be a "true" 3" setup. But yeah, Downpipe + Cat (or testpipe) + Catback = Full Exhaust

Theres 3 parts to our exhaust system.

The Downpipe
Intermediate Pipe / Flex Pipe
Cat Back

Say you get the 3" DP and a 3" cat back, you will still have to replace the flex pipe with a 3" to be a true 3" turbo back.

JSP and JT 3" come with the all the 3 parts to make it a true 3" turbo back unit.

I'm getting a custom 3" downpipe welded up for me this weekend by a Saab guy in Minneapolis. I'm ditching the cat, and we're also removing the center muffler.

The saabsport exhaust flows well enough that you don't need a true 3" turbo back until you're pushing 350-400hp.

Yeah, that's my Buschur exhaust, I was just showing what an entire true 3" turboback looks like. And with a good muffler, it's not that loud. Even better is no Cat, but that's illegal

Full 3" = 3" piping all the way?

Powerwise the stock intake with stock paper filter flows more then enough air for +400hp

Jak Stoll builds his 3" systems in stainless steel or aluminized/coated steel. I went with stainless from the turbo back because I intend to keep the car for a while and I live in WI - the US capital for salty/rusty cars.

In either case, he does fantastic work and I would recommend him highly.
