Stock. Honestly it's not really worth it other than sound and sound attracts unwanted attention...

Mine is all 3in but then he put the factory back on. Doesn't that cause restriction?

Cat back is almost nothing but sound. Turbo back is another story. And if your up pipe is stock, it either needs gutted or swapped for non cat up pipe. The cat can break up and destroy your turbocharger.

Great milage for an 02. That's worthy of a build for sure. Just make sure you look into that up pipe.

Not really. What you have is a TurboXS stealthback, though it's not actually full 3". I would recommend recommend a Hayward and Scott backbox, but they are expensive. Uncommon though.

Yeah, I missed this somehow.
Use YouTube to research different exhaust sounds. Than research the ones you like to make certain they are compatible with what exist.
And yes, make sure it has the proper tune.. Echo..echo... Lol
