Personally, I feel the 3" is a little big for the 2000DI (that is what I have), the smaller 2 3/4" may give you more torque, but anyway, get the muffler, the last thing you want to risk is droning on long trips and yes get a good Hiflow Cat (dump) makes a lot of difference.

Anyone else think the 3" is not right, as most people say do 3.
What about chip, has anyone done both and what do you recomend

Make sure you have put the boost and egt gauges in first. Plus make sure you have the boost control (Dawes/needle) in before exhaust and chip upgrades.

If you get the Dawes and needle set up right you might not need a chip :)
I've helped heaps of people in Adelaide set up and tune them to get great performance, sing out if you need a hand. We also have a NADS meet up in the meetups section if you'd like to see what people are running.

I tuned a zd last weekend and set it to a smooth 15psi and the difference was certainly noticeable.

Here is an old thread that contains very good information on exhaust systems and why you might choose one over the other Exhaust on 3.0 is 2.5" or 3" best" - enjoy :)

I've got a Dtronic in mine as well, 13 years, they are a bit long in the tooth now and you can only get them second hand (I've supplied instructions to a few guy's recently actually) and there were some issues with tune standards with the early ones. We tried 2 in mine before it was happy.

The replacement is the Unichip, if I was doing it again that would be my preferred option over anything else.

Whitie and I have discussed exhausts many times over the years (he has a 2.5 and I have a 2 3/4) and even though last time we compared mine had a little more torque, his came in lower, and that's a winner as far as I'm concerned.
