Re: 5KCSTQ Exhaust system mods

<< better performance, but the guy at Europart seemed to be talking about a
problem with too little (?) backpressure.  Is that a real concern.  I had in
mind a cat-back system which you made reference to, so is this something I
should attempt with only a basic IA chip upgrade (so far)?


....  That concern is valid with some of the car manufacturers, the ford
mustang comes to mind, you reduce the backpressure on the exhaust and the O2
sensor puts the computer into limphome mode....  Not true on the 5ktq....
 certainly not with a 3inch or 2 1/2 system.....   If you have a IA chip then
you should get the K&N filter....  After that you can look at turbo, head,
cat, IC, and/or exhaust mods....
