thats the thing with an IDI, N/A theres no point in having bigger exhaust without more air to move, just like any N/A engine..

Dude

For these rigs the best bang for the buck is a turbo. ATS, Banks or Hypermax. There are a few other that are very rare!

Save your money on the exhaust until you turbo this thing.

Hope this helps!

Exhaust WILL help....but like said a turbo is the best. Thing about exhaust is it will lower your EGT's allowing you to turn up your pump. Which will net more power.

Turbo kits are getting cheap and I've seen a bunch of them lately.
