Most stock exhaust can handle almost 500hp and high torque ranges from what I have learned. It's a tweaking game at best with your programmer, to pull out the powa!
totally true...an exhaust system in itself almost requires constant upgrading especially as anyone mods up. it took alot of tweaking before i was totally satisfied with my setup..
