    Tbe

    I have a few questions regarding this topic that i'm not sure about.

    Does the Turbo back exhaust have to be specific design, or is it just refering to an aftermarket downpipe and catback?

    Would i be able to use a HKS HIGHPOWER with a down pipe and highflow cat, and be considered to have a TBE, and would that be able to be stage 2?

    TBE is Turbo back exhaust, so downpipe + cat-back exhaust in one set.

    Not sure on the HKS question. I'm gonna say possibly, but wait until someone who knows more then I to respond.

    As for the Stage 2, just the TBE isn't going to make you stage 2, there's a little (Maybe a lot) more then that to do.

    DP + CBE = TBE

    StageII is common terminology for a turboback exhaust and an ECU tune. You can mix and match exhaust systems.

    i have the same set-up it sounds amazing. you'll want to get a catless up-pipe or gut ur stocker.

    IMO cobb is expensive just for an ots map. i say get opensource tuned instead. you can get tuned for less then the price of the ap.

    What is the difference between the two first off?


    I like the fact though that with the cobb i can easily flash it for several different stages depending on what mod's i feel like doing. and i can also flash it back to stock if the need ever comes instead of getting it tuned everytime.

    and i was also wondering if for your set up (HKS HIGHPOWER and HKS DOWNPIPE) you had to use a cat? between them or does the downpipe connect directly to the midpipe

    Might I suggest not using an HKS downpipe unless you have an EWG? Look into a bellmouth downpipe.

    You can run more power in a Bellmouth if I'm not mistaken. And it either increases/decreases wastegate flow. Whichever one it is it's a good thing.
