Well I run that exhaust, but as of now I am still na. Although it says that it's a 2.5" it has sections that are larger pipe diameter than others (all still<2.5), so its not a real 2.5". I think I'll run it for a little longer seeing as my funds are quite restrictive, but you could probably have a muffler shop fab up a full 2.5" system for about the price of the tsudo. Oh and mine was very quiet at first and is now much louder.

I hope this helps. I'll have a look at my pipe diameters again to verify the exact sizes.

^Why do you say that?
2.5" will take you a long way. How much power are you looking to coax out of the Greddy. If it's in the sub-200whp range, upgrading to a 3" might not be the best move $$$wise. You might see a better return spending cash elsewhere.

that big *** tip on the OP link will make it loud as hell. I've heard the OBX units and recommend them.

my exhaust seems like its very restrictive because its VERY QUIET. Im gonna try and get a sound clip for you guys. No one believes im running a 2.5" turbo back with no cats. My friends stock miata with a cat on is louder than my car.

I'm sporting a 20 dollar summit turbo muffler. So far I'm very happy with the performance and tone of my muffler.

I got a 3", who's satisfied with sub-200 RWHP anyway?
