>From what I could tell the power will be the best with open exhaust.  The
turbo spooled with no lag (86 SVO).  I could hear the turbo spool when
starting up the car.  I realize that I was not getting any kind of boost
but it was interesting to be able to hear the turbo ALL of the time.

On a side note.  I can still hear the turbo spool at startup with the ATR
exhaust, it will be interesting to see the performance drop between open
exhaust and ATR cat-back exhaust.  Hopefully I will find out tomorrow.
