Im trying to run straight pipes from resonator back. I also want to convert my single exhaust to dual and get larger piping. Where can i buy the saab bends for the exhaust?

Also what aftermarket turbos can i use?

So you're doing a muffler delete pretty much. I would recommend taking it to an exhaust shop and having then make it for you .

Personally i'd use the stock piping. it's not restrictive from cat back.

What is restrictive is the stock downpipe.

You can't just slap in a new turbo, T8 will not compensate and you will be in limp mode.

I'd recommend doing a 14T >>>> 16T conversion instead along with injectors and tune......

You want bigger pipe for what reason? You did a 19T/injectors upgrade with an agressive stage 3?

Bigger pipe with stock downpipe? You want at least a 3inch DP, thats the most restrictive part of the system. Stock rear section is more than sufficient for a canned tune from jzw, vtuner , BCB or others.

Intake dosent do anything exept for sound, you gain no performance at all, its simply for sound.

Got two choice, have it done custom, find a V6 aero line and swap it out :roll:

Get it at the same place you get the ear muffs, That s*** will be loud. Muffler shop is best bet.

I have the dumb intake and im aware its nothing but sound.

I wanted the dual exit for looks. I dont care if its 1 in piping. I didnt want mufflers because I only have the one hanger.

I know I'm not doing anything beyond a stage 1 tune. Hell i think id be happy with vtuner stage 0.
