If you have cams with some big overlap, 3" can help IF it's 3" all the way.

If you plan on getting cams then going with a 3in cat + exhaust will help. I have dyno results showings that even S3 cams make more power with a 3in exhaust vs my previous 2.25in setup.

if you really want to get the most out of it, run JWT C3 cams with valvesprings, greddy rocker arm stoppers, JWT cam gears, hotshot Gen VI header, hotshot CAI, 3" cat back, and you need to spend a bit of time tuning the cams to find the right cam timing.

if you have C1s they'll be okay, if oyu have the money, the C3's will be better. definitely get the cam gears. Hopefully Mike K will see this thread and chime in, he knows a lot more than I do about it.

C3 is same price as C1 for the SR20. At least browsing B15 parts, that is what I have seen. Just figured I'de throw that out. Then again, I guess it is more cost wise as I am gonna guess the C1s dont need any real ajustments or other parts but the C3s do and probably need gears and springs.

All c-series cams need springs and retainers. S series can be used straight up.

3"????
I've always been told that anything over 2" on an N/A will just hurt your bottom end power with little gain up top. Is that just for a stock motor?

well, the SR20 with appropriate mods can take full advantage of 3" exhaust.
