single 3" and split it into 2.5"-3" duals after the axle if you want the true dual look. Turbos dont like back pressure so use a muffler you can see thru

A single 3" will save you cash over dual and its plenty for the 2.3T as for a header im not sure who makes a aftermaqrket turbo manifold for the coupe but skip that and save your cash and get a boost controller, a better fuel system(i dont know what stock can handle) and get it tuned

Bob's log header is well received.

Stinger also makes a header, but the 3" downpipe is something to look at. About 1/3 way down.
