What Header/ Downpipe to Get?

Hey guys with black Friday on zzp I'm thinking of getting a header or down pipe for my car but I'm not to sure what will fit on my car and what I should get. I plan on going turbo so will I need a certain downpipe/header for that? If so would I be safe running them withought a turbo untill I get one? and what's better 2.5 inch or 3inch? last question what's the difference between shorty header and midlength? is one better than the other or?

N/A exhaust will not work on a turbo setup.

Longer the primaries, the more higher RPM gauged that setup will be.

Simple as that.

If you plan to turbo, don't waste your money on bolt ons because air and exhaust flow completely changes when you turbo

Yes because you'll need to buy a new manifold, downpipe and catback when you turbo

Technically he could keep the catback, would just need a new flange to match the turbo downpipe.
