Pricing wise thats dated. And i think a few of those companies stopped selling. But sizes and whether or not it is mating to stock catback is still valuable info for people.

Humph, I had no idea the AWE system was 2.5" all the way back, I thought it was still a 3" downpipe. I'd have just bought that instead of my USP 3 inch catted downpipe and Magnaflow 2.5 inch catback haha.

Might have to swap out one day to try it out.

Why do you want the smaller downpipe?

I would prefer the faster response and overall powerband since the 3" always seemed like a large option to me anyway, I just didn't KNOW they made any smaller than that. I no longer have any plans to go to a larger turbo now that I have the newest APR V2.1 tune, it's plenty in this car for me, so the powerband may be better off with the smaller downpipe anyway.

Wait so you want more torque down low? I was reading that the APR V2 was TOO much torque down low and people were complaining about drive-ability.

It'll to more than just torque down low, it should spool faster so the throttle response is better as well as likely help in the mid range rpms.

I haven't heard anyone say that the V2/2.1 has bad drive-ability down low at all! It's leagues better than any of the tunes I've had on my car (all the old APR tunes and Eurodyne tunes as well) for being able to use the power smoothly. It's about a billion times better than any time on these cars I've even driven, not to say the others are 'bad', just that they feel like tunes, this feels like OEM which is incredible to me, and still blows my mind how much better it is than before.

Ahhh ive got no experience with APR just reiterating stuff ive read on here. How much of a increased spool are you expecting to get by reducing diameter back to stock(?isnt stock 2.5"?)?

Not sure how much I could expect honestly, but I'm a crazy science guy who loves to test anything I can lol. Also I think the overall powerband will be even sweeter in the mid range since the new APR tunes fatten that the most anyway now making high revs (6k and up) less enticing to me on this engine.
