Default Restrictor plate in BEGi exhaust

4 or so years ago BEGi installed my turbo and exhaust.
Today I find a 1.5" restrictor in my 2.5" exhaust just before the cat.
Why is this here?

I was told to do this by FM in the year 2013. I got smart and researched this site instead.

iirc FM was suggesting 2.5" for people running 3" and creeping

1.5" is just ridiculous. why even run aftermarket exhaust in the 1st place?

A 2.375" pipe with a 1.5" flat plate restrictor in it will still have less restriction than a 1.5" pipe.

Sorry for interrupting the hate parade.

Yes, we know that just as well as you know how ridiculous the cost/benefit ratio of something like that is.

*edit: apparently I type too slow and G beat me to it lol

Don't expect to get that over with quickly if you are using a restrictor.

Insert baseball bat a few times and all of a sudden you're just plopping out flapjacks.

Yes, but if you have a colon full of Taco Bells Finest and a 5" orifice to push it through, wouldn't you rather remove your buttplug first and get it over with?

I mean, unless you are into that, then who are we to judge?

More flow = less time to do the same work = more horsepower.
