Default Exhaust input needed!!!

i just bought a long wide 3" J-bend and a short sharp 3" J-bend froma Summit Racing for any bends im gonna need and i also got a 4ft. section of 3" pipe and a 3" inlet , 3" outlet high flow stainless steel Cat. the piping was like 65 and the cat was 100 and i got a welder and a sawzaw to do this with. wut is the best way to do this with the mods that i have? after this im gonna make and appointment at Intense for a 3.4" pulley install (since its free wen u buy from them) and a PCM the next day because i have the money at hand. thanx for the input in advance.

Don't use any of the 3" components. You'll lose low-end torque. You can't even begin to flow enough to support and maintain exhaust velocity.

The only cars here that have (and can without losing) are those running 13.5 quarter miles or quicker.

Return it and use the money to spend on the mods you'll need to get your car where you want it first.

If you do it now, you'll lose the low-end grunt a supercharged car is know for. Any time you have an idea like this, it'* best to run it by the Forum first. Many have gone where you're going, and we have alot of expertise here.

You can learn from our mistakes and experience without it costing you.

If returning isn't an option...put it on but expect with your current mods that your low end power will suffer.

Once you add a cam, headers and heads that flow better..you will be able to put it to good use and won't need to do it at that point.

well i did it. and i love it. put on the 3" high flow cat and 3" to split 3". just the high flow cat, no mufflers or resonator. i did not lose low end torque. i turned traction control off and smoked the tires. then i did a video that is up on youtube. definately notible power gain.

Call me crazy but shouldnt any SSEi be able to smoke the tires with T/C off? Also, spinning the tires doesnt make you fast. Do a 0-60 and 1/4 mile and see if your exhuast has really helped you.

Congratulations. You seem to be the only Stock SSEi to not lose low-end torque with a 3" exhaust. Your car must be quite the factory freak.

(point being you DID lose low end torque)
