    Okay thanks for the help, I’m planing on eventually getting the big turbo upgrade and just don’t want to waste money on a clutch that won’t even be able to handle the new power, but the car will basically just be my daily with some wanted extra power lol

    No the downpipe is specifically for the turbo kit and comes with it, he’s asking if there’s the option of catted and catless for the included downpipe

    I am speculating here but I think you will still see some very nice gains with 91. If I was to take a guess at the number, 325+ whp. PRL can likely offer a more educated estimate though.

    It looks like the torque on PRL's "little" big turbo option will be slightly higher than the torque levels on Vit's Stage 2 tune. I based this on a comparison of PRL's and Vit's dynos of the stock configuration, and then adjusted up the torque value on PRL's Dyno charts by +15 (the rough delta between their respective Dyno values for the stock SI, after removing the +5 HP/tq that Vit says his Dyno charts reflect from his PRL downpipe).

    That said those levels look like they will come in at around 1K RPM later, so that's something.

    Oh my bad, no you typically cannot. You would have to weld one in yourself. Unless they do that as a service now. They usually do catless always with their turbo kits.

    That would be a shame. The requirement to go catless would be a non-starter for me.

    Sounds like the drop in turbo would be ideal for you then since it works with the stock cat. As you increase power like this the stock cat will go to crap quickly. They make really expensive ( but very efficient high flow cats ) for turbo and supercharged cars that can take the new power level and will not melt. You would have to cut and weld one of those in if you wanted to be catted.

    You won’t need any extra ethanol to make good power, you’ll make good gains with just 91 itself, no worries. But to the people that can get it and do a blend, they will make loads more.

    I believe there will be a catted option for this kit. Just maybe not right away.

    CVT max torque is probably around 250 and under

    Really doubt it lol torque can’t be that low on these cars with that much whp.
