I have 99.9 percent of my setup done....1 more question

Ok this is my setup: Si/So Borla. Y pipe to duals a little ways down. 18x3" tips.
should i get 2.25" pipe the whole way, 2.25" in and 2" out, or 2" the whole way? I dont want to lose my low end torque since thats all i have. Thanks

i agree, the OHV is a big torque engine, stock piping is 2 inch, so youll still get a performance gain with the 2.25, and not lose any torque

yeah as far as i know there is only one size, but there could be others. anything thicker than standard may not bend correctly in your exhaust shops bender

dual pipes cost more than single as well. so if he is happy with one pipe that is fine, hed have to step the pipe down even smaller to run duals and still keep all his torque
