    any bigger on a d15 than 2.25" is WAY too big unless its a race motor or boosted anyways.

    Tell your friend if he can fit his head into the exhaust, that's how big it should be!!

    you loose way to much torque when you go bigger than 2.25 unless it has boost

    More constructively, 2.25" is the biggest you should have unless turbo'd, and even at 2.25" you will notice a decrease in low-end power.

    i have 2.25" piping and yes, i do notice some loss in low-end power, but high end it helped ALOT...still might be too big, but whatever.

    Not enough back pressure for proper exhaust scavenging = loss of low end torque
