Default PS2 w/speedtech manifold, good idea? - 02-25-2019, 07:19 PM

Im considering running PS2, speedtech's manifold,
snd a high flow D*******. Would love the community's thoughts. Why am I considering this? Because speedtech's turbo is too big for a high flow D*******. It requires straight pipe. I don't want to do that on my DD. 1, because of the smell 2, because its too loud and i don't love the sound of straight pipe. I've read that PS2 machines the manifolds to the extent that they have sometimes cracked, plus i think that speedtech's flows better than a machined oem manifold (anybody have any stats on this?). Thoughts on this setup? Thanks in advance

you wouldn't be able to attach the PS2 to a speedtech manifold, because the PS2 is not detachable from the manifold. I guess you could cut it apart from the manifold and then fab a flange that would hook up to the speedtech manifold but that would be too much of a headache I would think.

Yeah what you're wanting to do isn't possible. Just buy the PS2 and call it a day or buy the speed tech kit and have an exhaust shop throw in a catalytic converter where the N54s have them.

Rough idea how much this would cost? Anyone done this?

I think it's about $300 per exhaust pipe to have one installed custom. At least at my friendly local muffler chop shop.
