Might be a stupid question but If I end up getting the 3inch exhaust can I run it on my car n/a will it change anything on my car in a bad way? Cause I just want to do a few things to make it sound better and go better as well get a few things done before I throw a turbo in it.. If I can put on the 3inch exhaust what one would use reccomend so the car doesn’t sound like shit any advice would be appreciated thanks

Been there done that. First thing you should do is cover/seal that pod filter, or install standard airbox. Sucking in hot air does nothing positive for your engine.

Sell your 3" exhaust and buy a GTS1/2 style exhaust manifold (6 to 2 to 1). . Buy two fat mufflers with 2.25" ends, then take it to your nearest decent exhaust shop and ask them to make you an exhaust with mandrel bends. Sound done.

Get a 'hotter' camshaft and Nistune. Install and tune. Upgrade suspension and brakes. Replace all flogged out bushes (e.g. rear trailing arms). Also invest in a working LSD. Learn how to drive, go to track days etc.

Once you're confident, sell the car or go all out on a turbo build.

There's a whole forum dedicated to your car ;)

Angry Industries had a sleeve for the front, you need to cut/weld your struts. The rear I think there are available replacement struts (S13 with top hat adaptors?).
