    So I installed my downpipe yesterday and I noticed a drop in boost but it does pull harder. Also noticed a bad smell after first driving it this morning, could be the WD-40 I used to get the bolts off though. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this

    Does anyone have any opinions on this exhaust system? I emailed their support and got this information: "To clarify, the TURBO model exhaust is 70mm (2.75") into dual 2.5".This would be the ideal setup for max air flow in your car. The non-turbo models are 2.25" FYI..." I have the Nameless...
