    Default best muffler for a turbo

    just was wondering for the new future there is only one muffler shop in town(minute muffler and brake) They carry all of the 2005 ractive muffler lineup and dynomax series mufflers. So a few questions

    1.)how restrective is the stock muffler on the turbo's???
    2.)Which muffler out of the 2005 ractive lineup would be the best?? does it have to be a 3 inch muffler??? does ractive even have a 3inch muffler???
    3.) I may later be upgrading to a full 3 inch system so i would like to transfer this muffler to it, so what are my best choices???
    4.)Would changing the muffler casuses and hp gains, extra boost, gas mileage etc.(basiclly the advantages of a changing the mufffler)

    Do not get a Ractive muffler, they are garbage.
    Honestly, if you want the best, have them order you a burns stainless 3" race muffler.
    They are by far the best turbo friendly mufflers out there. Any reputable muffler shop can order burns' products.

    I've read up on tons and tons of peoples horsepower gains from doing a full 3" exhaust from the turbo back(I have that done myself) the advantage besides the 25-35hp gain is that it helps your turbo spool up faster and also adds 1-1.5pds of boost do to less restriction. That is why the hp gain is so high. I noticed a very big difference. The best bang for the buck in my opinion. I bought a full system plus install for around $300. I have a stainless HKS downpipe($80) into a Magnaflow high flow cat($40 Ebay, 90-100 in muffler shops), 3" pipe back to a dual canister muffler($45 Ebay) which has 3" outlets. Look on the Northwest Region at the Burnt orange "88" 89+JDM Tail Supra. Thats my baby.

    I've got a 3 inch ractive on my 89 turbo and its sounds damn good to me and everyone thats heard it. Also magnaflow mufflers sound very sweet kinda like a ractive and they are both deep sounding.But i guess thats just my opinion.

    1: Very
    2: Neither, yes, probably not
    3: I say wait and go with a full 3" system from the turbo back. A 3" muffler and a very restrictive turbo elbow, dp, 2 cats and not to mention 2 1/2" piping won't do squat for performance, extra boost or gas miliage.

    1. pretty restrictive
    2. dont know. never heard of this company but as long as its 3' in 3' out and is straight through i dont see an issue minus noise
    3. cooleeze makes a DIY exhaust 3' pipes iirc that you can do and transfer your 3' muffler over
    4. yes to all. ease of flow out will help things alot. quicker spool and less work for the motor helps also. my bro gets only like 22 mpg on the highway with his stock exhaust and i can get 26ish with my full 3in.

    Here is another question that fall along these lines. Does anyone know of a good high flow resonator? Straight through exhausts can get noisy and make an anoing drone while cruising (don't get me wrong, they sound great when you go WOT). A good resonator should help with this.
