huh... your ganna have to get it custom made... but just like what the other guys ask WHY NOT 3"?

3" gives you more hp from whta i understand... and BIC just started making the next batch so if you want one you better get in line....

btw bic sells them like 450 shipp (not accurate around that price)

ill prolly cost you more if you ask them to customized it....

just my .02

actually, this is what happened. i went away for a week end. i thought it would be great if i were to give my dad the money to go get 3" pipes put on from my downpipe back. so i could get a 3 ddp. well when i got home there were 2.5"pipes on and i was like wtf. so i asked my dad what happened, and he said the guy at the muffler shop felt it was best to go with 2.5" piping. so i called him up asking if i could get my money back or if i could work something out to get 3"which i originally wanted. no dice the dude was a complete dick so now i dont want to spend the extra money to have it removed again and put 3" in. so yah i got screwd over. oh yea they also put a silencer in my exaust line to! wtf.
moral of story do shit yourself.

You can't really get a refund on labor.

So just buy a 3" downpipe later and remove this one. 2.5" is fine for now. The world will not end if you don't have a 3" downpipe. You will still get 300 at the wheels quickly with other mods.

I had a muffler shop try and tell me that if I dont go with 2" or 2.5 air will just flow out of the turbine unrestricted, and the car wont make any power, since all the gas will flow past the turbo, without doing anything. Needless to say, I never went there again.

I had a shop try to sell me the same theory. I took the mechanic there for a ride, then insisted he put on the three inch pipe, then took him for another ride.

Oddly enough, he doesn't argue with me anymore. Nor does he complain when I send him business from my hot rod friends who want 3 inch pipe.
