Re: GIAC v10, FM 3" turbo-back VS. Stock DYNO CHART (chris86vw)
Chris, I'm not just trying to support FM, but the 15hp EC gained also included the Neuspeed lower intake pipe, and most people have concluded that adds at least a few more hp(~5), so the FM gains like 5hp over a good cat-back, not just 1hp. Whether that justifies the extra cost is a personal decision, and maybe a 2.5" downpipe would make the same amount of power as 3".
Big question: Anyone tried insulating or coating their exhaust with a ceramic coating? One of the people that commented that 3" was too big said it might be Ok if there was ceramic coating to insulate it. Just a thought. Also, anyone know how much this would cost? $100?
