I went to meineki today and got an estimate for a 3in exhaust w/ a highflow cat and flexpipe and they told me it was going to cost about 500 bucks!!!!, what are some exahust setups that everone else turboed has? and how much was it?

First they told me that 3 inch pipe wouldnt fit and then they told me i would need backpressure on my car even with my turbo....

They said it would be a 3 hour job and that the cat would be 250 bucks, and the flex pipe would be 90, anyone know where to get cats and flexpipe thats good but cheaper that what was quoted to me?

I'm not sure about the cat but I'm sure you can get a decent one for around $100. Also, I just got a stainless steel flex pipe for like $30 shipped off ebay. Check atpturbo.com for the cat and decently priced flex pipes....

That's probably because you are still running the stock exhaust system? No? If that's the case, and for the user who asked, you don't need one because the stock exhaust system has a flexpipe installed.

yea the flexpipe you are talking about isnt really flexpipe, the springs from the exhaust to the exhaust manifold do pretty much the same thing as flexpipe i imagine

It really wouldn't hurt. It may save you from some headaches later on...

Yeah...you should get MUCH cheaper estimates if you tell them that you already have the cat and flex-pipe. Let us know what your new estimates are...

so running 2.5 exhaust is okey with turbo ? wouldn't u see hp gain if you go with 3 inch ? right now I have rs-r axle back exhaust which is 2.5 so if I get mid pipe from tpr ( hasn't come out yeat) in the future then my exhaust system would be ready for turbo ?
