Default Is exhuast same on turbo as n/a

Hello,
I just bought a 07 PT Cruiser GT (5-speed) and I am interested in changing out the exhaust (cat back). On ebay/amazon, they show different setups for turbos as opposed to non turbos. Are they really different? I figured the exhaust was the same for all years and models of PT's.

Been previous threads on this.
Sizes are different.
na = 2 inch; turbo = 2 1/2 inch.

Turbo needs more open breathing.
3 inch not needed unless you are going to Stage 1.

Yes there have been a few threads about it.

Yes at 5800 RPM the larger ID pipe for a Turbo has benefits. But below 4000 RPM which is 90% of most that own PT Cruisers the 1 3/4 pipe will more then do even on a Turbo Model PT. That is if you do the real world formulas. Lets remember that there are 5 engines (that I can remember) configurations (maybe 6 if we include the Whip?) that were available for a PT

And 3 inch is STUPID IDLY RIDICULES unless you are boost 25-30 +PSI and spinning the engine close to 8 grand.
