Nick's testing showed in most cases the 3" catback does not offer more power than a 2.5".

This was back when his car was making plenty of power. The 2.5" was shown to be no form of a bottleneck in terms of flow.

There's no toss up here , he's arlready got the DP. If you're looking for performance, get the IC, then the inlet pipe, the exhaust will give you a little performance, but mostly more sound. Unless you go with a 3" catback.

Palmer IC.


you already have the most important part of your exhaust set up as far as tuning goes, so get the IC.

My next mod?

Hey,
So I got my 3" downpipe V2 in last week and it's great, but now that I've had a taste, I want it all. I've got some money coming in from selling some junk on ebay, and I'm looking at my next mod... what should it be. I want to wait and get the ECU at the end so i don't have to spend money on retuning it. So i'm just focusing on hardware right now.

Options...
T7 Intake Pipe
Forge Intercooler
Saab Sport Exhaust

Which one will get me the most "bang for my buck"?

Thanks
