2.5" exhaust or even 3" is fine, Most of us run 3" straight through .

Those captive nuts are a pain in the arse, Does look like a bit of a repair job.

finally got around to cutting out the rust in the back near the captive nuts, and after a kind donation of metal from the mq(parts shorty) i now have it all ready to weld ... but unfortunately i dont have a mig to weld it with, only 2 arks
so i guess itll get welded when it goes to a mates shed for paint

yesterday me and the neibour welded in the back sections as well as cutting out most the rust and welding in new metal, also did the rusted out body mount(s), so today i cleaned it all up with a flap disc and cut the rust out of the guard, ive decides not to cut the entire guard so i can keep the lip for a bit of strength. pics to follow

That little ht15 is a ripper ..Keep it if it;s in good condition .

Do your 3 inch dumpy , 14 psi boost , add an intercooler ..add some fuel ..+ good intake / snorkel

Boost + egt gauges .....if you removed your exhaust mani , get it surfaced + new oem gasket and studs / locks and nuts .

Make sure your fuel , oil and cooling system are as good as you can get them .

I agree with Rusty, ive never had a HT-15 blow on me. They arn't as efficient as some, but for the most part they do the trick. Ive got 2 vehicles atm with ht-15s that are over the 500,000km mark, no signs of wearing out yet! A 3" dump is a great upgrade, aslong as you don't spend almost as much making one or getting one fabricated as you could spend towards an upgraded turbo. That said a turbo upgrade would certainly be a good torque/driveability upgrade if you're willing to spend the money.
It all depends on your budget and your goal with the vehicle in question.

Thanks for the input guys!, considering my turbo was rebuilt when the motor was( around 300k ago ) i think ill keep it til" i can afford to rebuild the motor, ill put the money towards an intercooler(thinking w2a) and making a dump,this shud be easy as i have a fully equipped workshop at school.
on another note ive finally been paid and im heading into bunbury tommorow to buy some thinners, primer and a sample pot of paint, also as its time for a project in my metals/engineering course at school i'll be nocking up some sturdy sliders and perhaps a rear bar , got 4 months to get the ol'girl back together so the pace is picking up !

Nice colour mate, very similar to the colour I want to paint my shorty.
I reckon it'd look great with a white canopy for some contrast.

Today I cleared the New shed were leasing, its antique, but its enclosed and has power, so tommorow im moving the shory there(fun with no brakes) , hopefully have it in primer by the end of the long weekend, and painted next weekend( if I can find a place that sells the paint a bit cheaper,$180 for 2L is robbery)
