Default Downpipe Question

Im doing the exhaust on my 94 ssei this week. I was looking to order a downpipe for the vehicle to get a little more performance and i cant seem to find to many downpipes for this car i have to be missing something. I check series 1 performance nothing there that i could see.

Thanks in advance.

Nobody offers a downpipe for the S1 L67. And as a result, nobody runs them. I actually suspect that ours flow a bit better than the S2 anyway, but I have yet to crawl under and measure.

My downpipe on the Zilla is stock, and I don't think it'* holding me back.

Nope, only a few have installed exhaust piping bigger than 2.5 since you will lose low end torque and power, the only mod you will need for the exhaust right now is a new magnaflow cat, and eventually porting your exhaust manifolds.

There are perhaps 3 or 4 cars on this Forum that can outflow 2.5" piping. I might be starting to push that limit on my 93.
