Default Hushpower?

Ive heard a few different clips of the hushpower mufflers on a few different cars. Im just wondering how it would sound on my nonturbo 2.2l? I have my GC sedan and my BK wagon which both will eventually get custom bent exhaust.

The wagon no longer needs the cat converter in my area for inspection, I was debating on going with a 2.25" straight to the hushpower shorty but not sure if catless will be too loud or have adverse effects in power/economy.

The sedan I have another motor waiting to be rebuilt and boosted, which Im also keeping in consideration. With the turbo would I be better off with a 2.5" or 3" straight to the shorty?

I admit I dont know much as far as optimal exhaust setups so anyone with knowledge on the subject feel free to interject whenever!

You will still want a resonator in the midpipe to help minimize the drone. I have a short hushpower on my non-catted EJ25. It's still loud, but better than it was with typical fartcan mufflers or a DNA "auger" style can. It is only obnoxious on decelleration now....

(my EJ25 is not even remotely stock, so your milage may vary)

Don't bother with 3" tubing. 2.25 is what folks have settled on for a good balance between top end breathing and low end torque.

Is that the case with turbo? I knew the 2.25 would be decent for nonturbo wasnt sure if bigger would be suggested when boosted. And yea, I didnt even consider the resonator despite that I was looking at both the hushpower resonators and mufflers as I was writing about the idea

Ill do that soon as I get the chance (I work in a shop so it gets too loud to hear)

So would the 2.5" be decent for flow on the wagon? Im not trying to race the thing I just need the entire exhaust replaced and dont wanna go stock. I remember on my old DSM the exhaust I bought was too big and really threw off the velocity of the exhaust flow, idled like it needed a transplant.

Yea I kinda figured as much, I was just worried as to whether or not the 2.5" would be too big or just right. If that wont be overkill then Ill go with 2.5" and get the most out of its breathing. Im also going to have a hybrid intake, research has shown me theyre better off than a short ram or cold air due to the maf. Again not looking to race it, but when I need a bit of power I like to know its there. That and... I cant leave anything stock

VERY true words. mine started when i bent the exhaust pipe and instead of getting an OEM, i went aftermarket. all downhill (or uphill, depending on your take) from there!

Ill be honest I bought my wagon off my father while trying to restore my 1992 mitsubishi 3000GT and I figured if I left it alone then I could afford to finish the GT.... Well when I was driving it everyday I couldnt stand the factory radio and changed that out, that was my first "modification" and it went uphill from there. Sold the 3kgt and kept with the subarus
