Thumbs up

I would go with a helix uppipe and catted downpipe, if you want to keep a cat on your car, if not go catless with a O2 fix. Gruppe-s sells the kit - up/dp/O2 fix for $450, I have a STP catback exhaust, I would go with any 3" exhaust kit, personally perference.

With that alone you will be screaming, that is what I have and I touch the pedal anytime above 3 grand and It pulls!!!!

I can't imagine what it would be like with a UTEC!!!!!

my .02 is to get your ECU reflashed either send it away or get a ECutek. The reason being that if anything goes wrong with your utec your engine might get blown up and the ECU and engine will be more reliable.

let me know what you go with!!!

I also reccomened the Helix package frpm Gruppe-s.com there up pipe and down pipe is great and then any 3" cat back you like ( I have the Espiliar cat back, very loud) I also have my ECU tuned with Ecutek and I love it. You should be about 210-220 HP at the wheels with that set up

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

Canadian, you dont want that downpipe. That looks like an HKS. It has a blank plate where the taper should be. See that peice where the hole is off to the side? That is where the bellmouth should be tapering down to the 3" pipe. A bellmouth downpipe is much more effecient than the blank plate. We have a blank plate stock. So all you are really doing with that downpipe is removing a cat. Go with a 4"Bellmouth tapering to 3" all the way back.

I had the HKS DP and no it's not the best but you will feel a big increase in power. On the stock turbo it won't make that much of a difference.
Yes it will fit, enjoy the new power

you should sell the hks dp and get an invidia or helix. There bellmouth dp which is better cause it opens up the wastegate. The ecutek you should be extremely happy with IMO its alot better then the UTEC ive had both. The ecutek has knock correction on it so it will never knock and its still on the stock ecu so it learns. Full TBE and EM is good for any where from 210whp to 240whp depending on the dyno and weather.
