its a terrible muffler for turbo. it is a great muffler, especially for street cars, but it doesnt flow enough for a turbo motor.

I used to have their N1 with a DC Sports header. I was pleased except the exhaust was really loud. Sounded very farty, too. It wasn't raspy or high-pitched but definitely farty. (I had my brother drive my car while I followed in his GS-R to hear what other drivers would hear.) The muffler portion hangs a tad low ... enough so that the muffler was literally RIPPED from the piping when I ran over a metal construction plate in the road. Great exhaust otherwise.

And the WS will suck for a turbo motor. The last thing you want to do is restrict the exhaust flow.

Anything that's straight through and free-flowing. When I was on the GReddy kit, I was using a 60mm b-pipe, custom rear section, and an OBX MV1015 muffler. Worked great. The key is to get the exhaust gases exiting as quickly and efficiently as possible, which is why the chambered design of the World Sport won't help you any.
