    Right now Im leaning toward Turbo XS.

    what do you all think?

    I want fairly quiet and decent power increase.

    Maybe you should get a post-cat backpressure measurement (done by temporarily swapping out the post-cat O2 sensor with a pressure sensor) before you buy ANY exhaust,so you can see if you actually have any backpressure, first.

    Alternately, you can piss your money away on a typical ricer mod without planning it out beforehand.

    My reasoning is that the Evo is built to handle the equipment it has -- I doubt any aftermarket exhaust is going to magically uncover enough extra horsepower on that particular car to justify the cost of a new exhaust, unless you've kicked up the boost limit on the turbo SUBSTANTIALLY.

    Factory boost setting is 19lbs. Mine is turned up to 23.5 and with a dyno tune the exhaust will be worth at least 20whp. So, Im told by the dyno tuner.
    :dunno:
     
  6. Then just ask your dyno tuner which exhaust you should get.

    How many HP does your car have now? 325 or so? Yeah...20 more isn't going to make a difference. Learn to drive the car better instead.
