I have a 3" from the DP back system on my 7A coupe.  Yeah, a HUGE overkill I
know.  But, I had intended to pull the 7A shortly after I did the exhaust,
which needed to be done anyway.  I did not want to pay for two systems.  4
years later, I am still driving it with the 7A.  Anyway, I have a Dynomax
UltraFlow as my resonator and a FloPro can in the rear.  The car is not
overly loud.  It does not drone on and on when going down the freeway.  I
did without the Dynomax.  My chief complaint about it is under 3000 RPM it
sounds like a rice rocket.  With a turbo, i seriously doubt the car would be
overly loud.  Especially if you retained the resonator and muffler.
