six or seven inch exhaust? thats really way to much, a good 4" turbo back to a five/six inch tip will be more than enough.

If you already have a downpipe, you only need cat back. 4" is plenty big enough. If you go too big, you will lose some low end grunt. If you live in a area that salts the roads or in a sandy area, i would go with the stainless. If you plan on swapping things around a lot and trying different things, go with the aluminized system. I made my own exhaust by getting a piece of 4: exhaust pipe from a muffler shop. I turned mine down and out in front of the rear tires. I'm always looking to try different set-ups, so aluminum was the way to go.

right where my exhaust crosses under the frame there is only a 1/4" clearance with the frame if you do a 4" like I did it should have plenty of clearance but if you run a 4" in/out tip it will have a huge gap between the tip and the rear fender 4" in and 5" out tip looks real nice almost like it should be there!!! If you run anything smaller than an 18" long tip you will be able to see the exhaust pipe where the tip is mounted!!!, you can see mine a little bit but it looks really clean!!!

Later,
