Should I... ?
Hiya guys and girls,
I have already installed the SuperSprint centre section (without cat) and a Remus back box on my Bella so far and am very happy.
Recently, I have found a very interesting offer, to upgrade the complete exhaust system (manifold, centre section and back box - no cats anywhere).
I have a question though: if I upgrade to this custom-made complete exhaust system, will the car loose or gain power?
I know that logically, it should gain some, but I also know that if there isn't enough "back pressure", the car actually looses power/performances.
I will also be getting an ECU reprogramming done which will increase both power and torque by about 10%.
Any help/advice welcome.
Many thanks to all,
