Hey guys, as some of youse know i have a ba xr6 turbo engine in my el xr6....and i am wanting to do the exhaust on it as it just has the standard dump pipe and 2.5inch exhaust system.

i was thinking about going 3.5inch dump into 3 inch exhaust because it still sounds the same from when i had the el motor in it.

couple of questions
: if i want it to sound like an actual ba xr6 turbo could i just put an xr6 turbo cat and muffler on it?
:if i go the 3inch exhaust do i have to do anything to the wategate because ive heard of overboost i think it is? I could just get one of those 12psi actuater and flapper kits aye?

and does it have to be retuned after the exhaust??

Thanks if anyone can help me as i am new to having a ba xr6 turbo engine :)
Cheers

The combo the BA/BF/FG use is a 4inch dump pipe and 3.5inch system all the way through

Here is some info

U can probably get away wth using a BA/BA Xforce dump pipe or other brand, and make up the rest as i dont see a big difference dimensions, angles and so on......
