with the 2 N1 you should be pretty good, might be a lil loud, high flow cat = hollow cat = loud Oo.

and 2 1/2 inch pipin, isn't that stock ???

It will likely be a bit loud.. if its too loud for you, just weld in a resonator on each pipe before the mufflers. You can use Dynomax bullet race mufflers as resonators (not sure how much more quiet that'd be) or Moroso spiralflows, or Magnaflow makes stainless true resonators that should last a while but again, its hard to say how quiet it will make it.

from my experience.. since u are running 2 mufflers.. and doing only 2 1/2 inch piping .. it shouldnt be that loud specially since ur turbo.. im running 3 inch downpipe 3 inch single exhaust and no cats or resonators.. apexi n1 single muffler and its not that loud.. its a little loud than normal

the volume of the exhaust is not what i am worried about, i just want it to sound good, not a piece of **** that sounds like it needs a muffler or somethin like that. thanks for all of ur replies, i appreciate it.

i dont know why people are worrying about the noise. the turbo itself acts like a huge muffler anyway.



dont quote me on this, but if it's an expensive exhaust, it should have a nice tone and a nice sound level. the only thing that might make it sould crappy is the hollow cat.



you should go with bigger exhaust tubing size. i was running 2 1/2 " piping and upgraded to 3" racing beat full exhaust. my boost increased 3 psi mid range, and creeps up to 10 psi WOT near redline.



go with a thunderfad 3" downpipe-midpipe combo, or whatever brand it is. that'll give you lots more power and great sound...
