Anyone running single exh on there turbo car?
Im wondering what size tubing would be best, turbo kit has a 3" down pipe, should i stay with 3" all the way or go larger?

The bigger u can do the better but then clearance becomes an issue. 3 inch Will work just fine though.

3 inch dp to a 4 inch race magnum to a 4inch turn down before real axel. Fit real well and sounded mean.

thanks for the replys, I will probably go the single route, ill do some pricing on some 3-4" pipe and mufflers and make a decision from there.

The bigger the better if you have the room. 3" will work good, although could probably make a bit more power and spool faster with larger piping.

Also try to stay away from chambered mufflers, they cause a restriction which is raise backpressure, reducing power and increasing spool time.

Im running a full 3" exhaust through a hooker maxflow (straight through muffler) dumped at the rear axle. Its suprisingly quiet.

Yeah, chambered mufflers do not belong on turbo cars.

I have a cheapo dynomax bullet muffler and the car is very quiet for the power it makes. 3.5 downpipe, 3.5 muffler and turn down.

Would love to have bigger but it is a tight fit.

It all runs down the driver side and I also did all v-band incase I ever wanna try open DP again.
