Jim, I have the 3in with the flowmaster, and it you can do it, but, I would
suggest the use of the stock (chain reinforced) O-rings for holding it to the
car......  It will give your stage II a serious kick in the rear, and flows
some serious air (I like to listen to the rush of exhaust thru the pipes when
I put it on the ramps).....  You should do the 3in from the turbo back to get
the best result, otherwise a 2.5 will be a great improvement over stock.....
 Post me if you want to discuss on the land line.....  I should be around
