Question Magnaflow Exhaust

Hey - Does anyone know if the Magnaflow 15860 which is designed for the PT Cruiser Turbo's will work on an N/A? As far as the spec sheet shows, the only difference is that the turbo version doesn't have the "resonation can" or whatever you want to call it, and the 2.5" diameter pipe.

Magnaflow N/A Kit

I want the turbo version because of the 2.5" pipe. Both exhausts first piece is a 2.25" pipe, but on the axle-back part on the turbo version it switches to the 2.5".

Can anyone verify this will fit? Is there any difference in the mandrel bends? Is the exhaust is placed on the Turbo vs. the N/A.

If this won't fit - will the N/A kit help any in performance? I really don't see the need to upgrade to a full cat-back kit, without getting a bigger diameter on the exhaust pipe. (Other than the fact it'll sound really sweet...)

Thanks!
Matt

No performance gain on na PT. Just a nicer sound. Go for 2 1/4 na exhaust. 2.5 won't help with performance at all. On the turbo PT the 2.5 will not increase power, but the turbo will spool up a bit faster allowing you to get to power faster.

Thatís what I figured. I am planning to S/C my PT later on after the warranty is up. But by then, I might want something different anyways. I just wanted the second opinion about the exhaust not doing a whole lot for the N/A, because my car that I tune - is a turbo - so it does have a full 3" from the turbo back. You can roll a tennis ball from the down pipe out the muffler, pretty great

Does anyone here have the MagnaFlow kit? I like the fact it's stainless, and relatively inexpensive. I can get this one on eBay for about $350. Any other stainless exhausts comparable in price?

Thanks,
Matt
