first car

Heyhey, im 16 and gonna have enough cash for my car soon and got my heart set on a TE...just hoping to get some advice on exhaust diameters for both 250 and 200 xflowz.
Thinking of hunting a more rev friendly 200 and throwing in a supra 5 speed with tightass ratios, what hope do i have? Honestly, any input appreciated.
Cheers

Re: first car

Mate /stock a 200 is not realy that much more rev friendly than a 250 as there crappy stock cam shaft profiles and soft valve springs, means everythings all over by 4500-5000 in a stockie.. A 250 has a massive torque advantage over the 200. The 200 is good as a parts motor as the long con rods used in the 200 can be put into a 250 with specical ACL pistions giving a better rod/stroke ratio on the 250..

Im running 2.5 inch straight through with one 2.5 hot dog under the drivers seat and one semi off set un-boltable muffer at the rear with pace maker extractors.
