Soooo if a 5.0L pushrod made 225hp from the factory with 2.25" dual pipes... Why does it gain power moving to a 2.5" system? I daresay that a 2.0L making 160hp from the factory is moving much more air volume than that weezy 2.5L per bank engine.

I honestly don't give much credit to the backpressure theories on modern cars where multiple cats are retained. The cats are a blockage, and force backpressure to be retained for the engine side of things, cancelling out most if not all pulsation in the exhaust flow, and anything post-cat system is made better by open pipes.
