Yeah he is just describing the ricer in general so that you know what it is and don't get into it. I don't think he's accusing you of anything.

if it's a turbo then go with a 3", if it's not a turbo then don't go over 2" if it isn't a 6cyl, mainly because anything over 2" on a 4cyl will just lose back pressure and kill all bottom end torque, leaving you with a really slow pick up speed.

put it this way, my excel does 0 - 100km/h in somethin' like 6.2 second's, if i were to put a 2" pipe on it, it could POSSIBALLY make it 6.1 second's, if i were to put a 2.5" pipe on it, it'd definately make the time slower, 6.3 maybe even 6.4 second's, all because of back pressure, without a high compression on a N/A engine you have no power.

when it all sum's it, go with 4-2-1 extractors with a 2" pipe from the extractors, the size of the cat back isn't critical.. i would say go with a 3" cat back though.. probably a 3.5" or 4" muffler box and a 2.5" or 3" tip.

i've never heard of this juice box contraption, look's like a good steal, and if it's not then you can always sell it back on ebay or more then you payed, it's always a win-win situation.
