I'm not very familiar with the super dragger, but the populaur "40ks or 60hp" gain, is a typical promotion of tuner companies with the 2nd gen rx7's. The reason that you gain so much power with the exhaust modification is because your turbo is overboosting. Let's say instead of 5.6 lbs of boost now your at 7.5 lbs. The internal wastegate can't control the boost anymore due to the lack of back pressue.



The problem for you, is that your exhaust has already been modded. Cats removed and such. So if this dragger exhaust is the next best thing since sliced bread you might see a 5 - 10 hp gain over your 3 inch setup.



you did mean "downpipe" instead of "dump pipe" right?

hrm, well technicall you'd be overboosting right now because of your 3" exhaust. If you still have the cat, i'd replace it with a presilencer. A lot of places have them premade to bolt right up.



yeah if you notice the fine print on the 60 hp gain, it will say "over stock" because many other systems will give you the same gain in hp.

There isnt really anything magical about japanese exhaust systems like GReddy, Apexi, HKS etc.. they just happen to be "mad tyte" because they are from japan. A 3" exhaust is a 3" exhaust.

pre silencer is just a type of muffler. Racing beat sells a nice one and it bolts right into the place of the cat. The pipe goes straight through, with stainless steel packing around it.

yeah the rb silencers doesn't do much for loudness but makes the tone of the exhaust a lot more acceptable.
