    Default 3" Turbo exhaust system?

    Will a 3" cat back exhaust system be ok for my 2.0 Turbo with stage 1 Bsr? I have read on google you can loose torque and power having a 3" system fitted. What size is the Bsr exhaust for stage 2 or 3? I am looking into getting a Cobra 3" cat back system this week, is it worth it? Thanks

    3" down pipe and 2.5" cat back system Simmons/Jetex.On my car it worked fine but if your thinking of getting stage 3 don't bother it's rubbish.All you get for your money is LESS bhp but a good lump of torque all offset by overfueling.

    I won't go no more stages than I am now at stage 1, I am happy with that. Just don't know what to do about the exhaust. Anyone have a 3" exhaust on your Vectra C? If so whats it like? Cheers
