Its been discussed that the 2.5" might be a better plan if you are planning on adding additional power adders down the line. If the limit of your modding is an intake and exhaust and nothing else a 2.25" exhaust may work better.
Back pressue is not a factor in direct injection engines, as fuel charge scavenging can not happen, becasue the fuel charge is delivered at full compresion.
