Good question.  Either way, to take full advantage of the upgrade you
will have to rebuild the entire exhaust system.  

I suspect the 4kq is better - but if you already have the 87.5 bits or
they are real cheap... I'd still use the 4kq stuff.  It is a *lot* of
work to swap the EM on these cars - it's not fun even if all the nuts
come off nicely like 3 year old stainless - it must be a terror on a 14
year old car with the head still on.  So you might as well get as much
as you can for your efforts.
