Here's what i've come to understand. It really all depends on what turbo you plan on running.

K03/K04: 2.5"
GT2x/GT28: 2.75"-3"
GT30+: 3"

If you plan to go with a K03/K04 i would reccomend having a good exhhaust shop do a full custom back. Pick the magnaflow muffler you want. I just think that allows you to dictake how your exhaust will sound.

However... i've heard almost ZERO bad things about Borla. APR & Neuspeed make good exhaust setups too.

"2. Exhaust – Because our cars are turbo, freeing up room for the turbo helps bring out power, so an exhaust is important. There are many companies (Borla, Milltek, APR, and Neuspeed are the most popular off the shelf ones). Some like it louder, and some like it softer. Borla would be the loudest then neuspeed. miltek and APR are stealth type exhausts so they are very quiet.. Make sure you get a good diameter depending on how much power your going to be putting out.

2.25"-ko3 power
2.5" to 2.75"-ko4
2.75" and up- BT"

I agree with those measurements above... Throw in a Magnaflow muffler and a HFC or TP and you're golden. I absolutely love mine.

I have the 3" ATP testpipe and then 2.5 the rest of the way. I've never had a problem.

If you wen the custom route, you could have them put a 3" to 2.5" Collector where the rest of the exhaust would meet the DP.
