There's a balance to find the proper pipe diameter to achieve the most volumetric flow at the highest velocity. With too big a diameter you reduce velocity, but with too small a diameter you choke the engine. Back pressure has nothing to do with scavenging. Higher velocity will yield more scavenging effect.
You're gonna' start a pissing match, Sean.

Truck was sold today [5/19]. I got an offer I couldn't turn down. I had no more need for a pickup so I cut it loose. About to purchase a '14 Jeep SRT8 this week.

Grub out!
