iight well i need an exhaust as ya now, im going with the rb catback for non turbos, i was thinking of doing a t2 or fd motor swap into my car right, so do i need to get the catback for t2 instead or can i just get a down pipe and what not.

If your planning on the swap...you can still use the RB Catback. Just buy a downpipe/cat/presilencer setup..whatever you want. The catbacks mount in the same locations on T2s and NAs...so you'll be fine.



Performance wise...a T2 catback would flow better for a turbo application...

turbo exhaust diameters are generally bigger, resulting in a drop in back pressure...but for a turbo car thats a good thing.

1/2 bigger, the exaust is the least of the problems with the swap



so if you are thinking of a tii swap, then get the TII exaust, if

there isnt enough backpressure you may have to put another

muffler or a resonater, but it should be ok.
