[Es2] what exhaust and converter?

Yes absolutely you want an exhaust much freer flowing
than stock.  When I did the 3B conversion I initially
had a Scorpion exhaust, plus the stock 200tq downpipe.
 While the Scorpion was quite loud with the 7A motor,
with the 3B it was dead quiet and the motor really
struggled to make full thrust on boost.  I then went
with a 2Bennett 3" DP and exhaust (single rear box)
and it really opened up, the difference was
significant.  As I did both the exhaust and DP at the
same time I can't say which made the most
contribution.  My guess is the exhaust.
