unless there is some crucial difference between the 94 and the others, besides being naturally aspirated, then I don't see an issue.

There is no difference between the 91-93's, and the 19994 exhaust systems.......they are identical, across all 4 years.

I thought as much.

So, I built a compression bent 2.25 downpipe, with a flex pipe, removed the cat and spring flange and all that restrictive garbage. Thing ROARS now. I think I'll put up a YouTube video about it.

I would realy be interestet in an exhaust system. Catback and 2,5" is what i am looking for. But think it would be to expansive to ship it to germany right?

Insanely. Just trying to get those lenses to you increased prices tenfold...

Yeah thats sucks. Shipping cost are so expensive thats realy unbelievable. Your prices for the exhaust system are relay good. In germany we would pay about 2 or 3 times of your price for a custom build exhaust.

For examble. If i will buy some pipes, flex pipes and muffler and some liitle things like flange... i wil pay more than 250 euro (about 280-300 dollar i think) for this. And than i had to build it on my own.

Did you ever get that youtube video up? I'd love to see and hear your new exhaust. It would help advertise as well!

I would be all over a 2 1/2" down pipe...

I'm planning on making a run of those, mandrel bent. I'm debating on whether or not to try to make a spring flange end so it can just be plug and play, but deleting that and putting in a flex pipe would be better.

This venue will be getting off the ground soon, I'll just have folks PM me requests and I'll provide a quote soon thereafter. Easier to keep track of, that way.

Do we get a discount if we drive 13 hours to get to your shop?

I wouldn't rule it out, but that's up to the old man.

OMG am I first???
If so, I've gotta research more on boost creep. My current exhaust is shot, so not sure how much more free flowing this will be? I'm happy enough with performance, more want the car to sound better LOL

From what I've been able to read on here, creep is an issue, but I ought to be safe enough trying it out and seeing how bad an issue it is for me, if at all. (I won't grenade the engine immediately anyways.) I know the time to do it is when hanging this pipe, but time is at a premium for me lately, and I fear pulling apart the turbo to port the waste gate is more than I can get done in a day (plus the rest of the exhaust.)

Anyways I can't wait to see and hear how the new exhaust is on my car. Will take pics and post em if I can figure out how...
