Gordy lost low-end torque.

Even INTENSE doesn't suggest 3" on a mildly modded car. I believe even 8-ball is at least half 2.5" still.

And your point is? Gordy stated some time ago that he felt a loss of low-end.

I have TOG headers into a 3" Carsound cat, 3" out into a 2.5" reducer then the resonator and lastly into a Dynomax Turbo muffler. From behind the cat to the back is the original mandrel bent 2.5" SS exhaust.

Cheers,
