Exhaust Options? Need Opinions
 
What is the best way to run my custom exhaust? Best for a balance of performance and sound

Recommendations on size- Is 2.5" big enough or should I be running 3"

Also what are some good headers? After some more research planning on longtubes.

I'm a fan of true duals, so I would recommend that. Have you done any research on the differences in all of them. I know with true duals you get some really good air flow.

I like the true duals myself, just make sure you have some kind of muffler to create back-pressure otherwise your forfeit low end power.

I've done some, I just haven't found any real good solid info on which flows the best. I was thinking at first true dual 2.5" all the way from the header back would plenty enough and better than stock. Then my mind just got to running and I started wondering if that would actually flow the best for my setup, and so I found some info (not sure on reliability) stating that by adding an H or X pipe in your duals can help with scavenging helping the exhaust to flow smoother and quicker resulting in better power. Also a single exhaust run at a larger diameter can flow as good or better if designed properly, basically take the stock setup and use bigger diameter tubing for more flow. I just don't know which will look-sound-perform the best...

RootBeer- Yeah I will be running mufflers as of now the resonated aeroturbine.
