why are you offended?  I'm jus sayin I dont know how some of these guys
are experts, and their cars are so slow...

 Who is saying a 3" pipe doesn't help?  Not me.  Im saying it depends on
 what the rest of the system is like.  If you have a factory merkur 2.25" 
 cat and cat back, your not gonna pick up power by putting on a 3" pipe
 when the restriction is still there. Kinda like putting on a 5" tip for
 that extra flow.  Too bad the added regoin of flow is only the tip and
 not the whole system.
