    scorpion exhausts are 2.25' bore so are no bigger than standard, for that reason I would go for a blueflame system which is 2.5' iirc.

    id personally get a custom as i think the blueflame are pretty w@nk tbh

    scorpion is out of the equation due to the bore and the Mongoose one looks very similar to the blueflame so i have my doubts

    Custom cat back should come in at about 350 - obviously depends where u live but better choice of pipes and sound etc

    i spoke to you at PVS, but could not remember your username (sorry)... Would the pipe you supply, fit with the jbi intercooler ? (also dump valve spout on boost pipe not top hat) is that possible ?
