ok so i was talking to my friend about getting a greddy turbo kit and he said i would have get an entirely different exhaust then the one i have on my car right which is a magnaflow cb. Is this really necessary?

for a basic greddy bolt on turbo that exhaust is probably perfectly fine. really depends on the piping diameter though. 2'-2.5' is ideal, but 2.25 would be perfect IMO.

just one step at a time man, LOTS of stuff needs to be preped before you get boosted. thats the last thing Im doing
here is tha plan I devised

-all refured maintenace first
-lower car
-get everything for alignment
-replace anything work bushings ect.(boost BEATS on parts)
-get some stuff to help plant the power
-new clutch and a good one lol

here is what Ihave done so far
eibach sports,tockiko blues,omni LCA's,megan h-brace,ES motor mounts,ES rear trailing arm bushings,megan toe and camber kit,CTR strut brace,timing belt and water pump, AEM cam gear.

to do:
XTD stage 3 clutch and im ready for some snail man :)

The clutch is a good idea, but shouldn't you be building the engine before turboing? I've never heard of anyone loweing their car for boost.

how much boost could i run my y8 on stock internals?
well whats the milage and condition on the engine? 9-10 psi is a nice safe number with a good tune, people have pushed it to 15psi on a stocker.
