I'm looking into getting the ARK N2 dual exhaust for my i4 5spd tib but I want to get a turbo kit for it a little later on down the road.

Will this exhaust work with a turbo setup?

An exhaust designed for a turbo car will be ridiculously loud while I'm waiting to get the money for the turbo and an exhaust not designed for a turbo when the turbo is finally installed will be like blowing through a straw.

Anyone have experience with the ARK exhaust and a turbo?

Yes it will, I have the N2 single and it is perfect. You really don't need much more than 2.5in until you're pushing 400whp.
Oh and no an exhaust for a turbo won't be ridiculously loud. I could hardly hear my N2 before I got boost, and it got even quieter after boost, the turbo acts as a natural muffler. Now with a high flow cat and no resonator it is slightly louder, though unles you're really on it you can't hear it.
As far as blowing thru a straw, well no. Small displacement 4 cylinder engines rarely need more than 2.5in, which most aftermarket exhausts are anyway. Alot of guys go with three inch and they see a few extra ponies over 2.5, but there aren't any manufacturers making 3in for the Tiburon and most shops will charge you an arm and a leg to get it, if they have a machine large enough to do it. Small displacement, small-medium turbo=no problem for 2.5inch exhaust.

Im saying that an exhaust designed for a turbo without one will sound ridiculously loud.

But if you say the N2 will work thats good enough for me. Especially if you're running one now.

Well I'm not going single I know that. Basically I was just wondering if the ARK N2 exhaust will become too quiet with a turbo. Or on the flipside, is there a Turbo designed exhaust that wont be too loud without a turbo?
