In all honesty, how much top end is gained by adding full 3" exhaust to a 3" downpipe? That's with a stage 2 tune. I doubt it does much because the turbo has no top end.

why does everyone always ask about doing bolton mods when they haven't even flashed the car to to stage1? its the biggest gain you can get right from the get go

CEL, running rich, slight low end loss and top end gain, may negatively affect gas mileage a little bit. Honestly if I were you, I'd just wait to put it all on until you have the money for a tune :thumbsup:

A lot of people want the sound of the exhaust before the flash. Same with the looks of the fmic. But seriously man... get flashed first, it only makes sense lol.

not much. the main thing that restricts our tiny turbos is the catalytic converter located directly after the turbo itself. once that is gone, the exhaust moves air out of the way better and lets the turbo do what it can.

Guys thanks for the replys but trust me I know that getting my car flashed should have been the first thing but u gotta understand I'm in the military and have been in training for over a year so I haven't had my car to be able to get it flashed and when I go home to get my car and get these parts I'm gonna have to put it on then instead of when I get to my unit cause all the tools I need are back home
Once I get to my unit I will get it flashed to stage 2 but I needed to know if there would be any serious negative effects on my car to prevent me from driving the 16 hours to my new unit hope it makes since now as to why I'm asking this question .. but from the sounds of it looks like ill be getting shitty mpg from running rich and not as much low end tourqe which I can deal with for a week or 2 ..
