Well despite recommendations I fitted a 3" exhaust today mainly cause i picked it up for $200 2nd hand
but i have to say im impressed it spools up quicker and feels alot more punchy down low and pulls harder through the revs bare in mind I have had the boost turned up when it was tuned so that may have something to do with why it goes so well
so if you get your dmax tuned an exhaust may not be a waste of time

I have also purchased a bigger Intercooler off ebay (not the rip off hpd one) so once that turns up I'll have a go fitting that not sure if it will line up yet but shouldn't be to hard to mod this should increase torque if it works

interesting;

Very inconsistent reports re: 3" zorts....Some rate them with a massive improvement, some say they lost torque....obviously replacing one whit 150,000ks is going to have some improvement if just due to the new and not melted cat.

Did you go steel or alloy

Yeah everywhere i read it says they do nothing so i didn't bother with one but when this popped up for 200 i thought it wasnt going to be a big loss if it did nothing
It wasn't as bigger gain as tuning but is definitely made a difference even on torque pro it made a difference peak kw is up by 14kw and boost is down by 1.5psi
while i dont rate the app outputs as realistic its gained over what it was

I got a mild steel xforce exhaust and can hear it abit more at idle giving it a rev but when driving has made no difference to noise

Yes is turbo back exhaust looks to be 2.5" for 200mm of the dump pipe then 3" rest of the way
factory is 2.5" from dump to muffler then 2.75" back

Well parts arrived for my intercooler install had a bit of a test fit and its a perfect fit :D
just have to make some mounting brackets which ill do this week at work
so far ive spent $210 on intercooler and silicone ,
brackets will be free thanks to my work haha
That sure beats the 1595 hpd want for theres

Also i turned the original intercooler upside down over night and got 1drop of oil out of it
