I got an apexi N1 turbo muffler with custom 3" mandrel bent stainless steel piping. It is a big improvement over my previous 2 1/4 inch exhaust. Faster spooling and a LOT more spooling potential. Before I was topping out at 17 psi in 4th gear. Now I can hit 20 psi in 2nd gear. I'm running the 60-1 btw.

Is the exhaust pretty loud?
But i heard w/ turbo, it's suppose to quiet down due to the blades in the turbocharger.

Yeah, it's pretty loud, but a good loud. Only time I get annoyed with it is on the highway during long trips. Getting the thermal would make it quieter than my setup cause i'm running straight through 3" piping from turbo back. No cat, resonators, and the muffler is just fiberglass packed.

eternal, would your setup be loud on ANY stage 1? For some reason I was thinking that setup wouldn't be loud. I currently have stage 1, and I have stock exhaust... would getting a new exhaust give me more power? i did dyno at 306 with stock exhaust... thanks.

If you get a custom 3" or so exhaust, you would free up tons of power. The stock exhaust is too restrictive for the turbo and is keepin you from optimal power.

CN said it didnt matter that much... i doubt im gonna free up that much power, seeing how I have one of the highest hp stage 1's and i have my exhaust.

Well since you have that much power for a stage 1, it's really up to you. It will definitely free up some power though, and make throttle response better. Gotta warn you though, running a straight through 3" is gonna be loud with no resonators. I'm used to my exhaust now, but if you don't like droning on long trips, might as well stay with ur stockie.
