Default Enthuza 2.5" exhaust?

One of the guys at Enthuza is putting a new exhaust on and will sell me his system reasonably. It's the 2.5" stainless turbo exhaust with a 2.5" high flow cat and the Borla muffler. Used for a little over 1K.

$340 OK price? Any opinions about this system for a turbo car? Looking for good flow but not too loud. 2.5" OK size for most turbo applications?

I thought the Borla muffler was only used on the non-turbo system? My NA Turbo exhaust uses a polished muffler with no brand stamped on it which I verified with an inspection mirror is a straight-thru design.

Also, double-check that the cat is indeed 2.5". Enthuza advertises the JR Cat on their website, and I thought that one was not a 2.5" inlet.

Otherwise, good price.

I think this is a system the guy put together for himself. He say's it's full stainless with a Borla muffler and a 2.5" cat. I'll double check to make sure it's 2.5" in and out.

Are you buying this through Jason? He's a good guy, I haven't bought from him before but I've chatted back and forth and he seems very knowledgable and honest. I'd take it for that price... **** FM wants like $500 for their turbo cat-backs these days.

Enthuza is pretty reasonble for their stuff. This set up new is $399 and the cat's $170. $340 seems like a good price for quality from good people.
