Welcome new member!

This area is mostly for newbie introductions. I'm gonna move this to a technical forum (engines/internals) where more people should respond with real answers.

Well, maybe if I change the title it can attract some attention.

Check out the ongoing conversation about more power for a 94. Yours is pretty similar.

I'm almost positive that he means 2.5" pipe with a 4" tip on the muffler. IMO, 2.5" is a bit large for a 4 banger NA .... I think 2.25" would be better. I've seen an EVO2 setup on an SI with a K20 and that worked well with 60mm piping. 2.5" isn't terrible, but not ideal either. I don't even think 4" piping would fit the OEM routing and bends, but you never know.

FYI - I plan to use 2.5" piping on my tC for a 2.4L engine turbocharged.

EDIT: For the poster above me ..... backpressure requirements are a myth however proper flow regime is not. The reason for losses on a NA due to an inappropriately sized exhaust system is due to the large volume of gas that has to be moved and too low a flow velocity to maintain a fully uniform and turbulent flow. To add to the problem, piping is typically a constant size as you move toward the rear of the car, yet the exhaust is cooling rapidly which caues it to contract and lessen the flow even more as the muffler is approached. Backpressure is a similar explanation that is widely accepted, but is fundamentally wrong. No intent to step on any toes, just some info.
