    you need to ask 2xs why 17's! They are for drag racing only. Although the track cars use 17's too. 17's are more ideal as there are a better choice of slick tyres for them than 18's.

    They will be running 18" with the Gen 2 because of the wider rim as std , need to be close to production as possible

    Yeah, the grand prix mps runs 17's. I dont own the new mps. Was going to put 15's on the front so i could stick some real slicks under it but because of the size of the brakes i cant run 15's, so 17's are a better choice, as 16 are near unavailable for slick tyre choices.

    Yeh 17" currently that's why I will be using their 17" rims and oldish tyres for the mean time for track use.

    There's a thread here somewhere about the results after a member did it. Said it made a horrible drone, and no evident power increase.
    Here...

    So i removed the stock chamber muffler ...

    well i replaced my rear chamber muffler today with a stainless steel muffler straight through and it sounds better and goes a fraction better. Lots more power in third gear. Not much difference in sound. Still very quiet. People who put a straight through pipe in place of that muffler will have droning problems. Very happy with the upgrade.

    Nice work. You should post your thoughts on that thread I sent you.

    i have posted it already hehe, a good exhaust shop owner will tell you that replacing a muffler that size with a pipe will only cause drone, as mine did. Depends where you go I suppose.

    You can fit 225 tyres sensibly. 235 will fit. Get wider rims for the std tyres, a bigger improvement than fitting wider tyres the the std rims.

    WARNING wide wheels and coilovers

    Exhaust with DP, FMIC, SRI and tune is possible. I got 13.06 with that setup (only 206kw at the wheels)
    206kw?? I been told I will only get around 177ish kw with same mods minus the fmic. Dont u have aftermarket manifold too? and injectors?

    PS- Wed 20th Oct Im going in for a mazedit tune at HPF. Will ask for 17psi as i hear its the best psi for these cars with standard turbo. What is the standard turbo? Is it like a T3?
