On a greddy? Maybe. I'd be difficult. On almost any other turbo position? Yeah.

i went from the stock greddy to a 2.75 swagged dp with 3inch dp back exhaust, talk about a difference, turbo spool is so much quicker down low, making boost at 2500 instead of 3500, and getting full boost by 3500 has been worth it. Granted it will be a tight fit but its worth it in the end.
