2.25" or 2.5" exhaust

Hey i have a 2005 ZX4 ST and am planning on getting a Trubendz exhaust as one of my next mods.

I'm not planning on doing much more than an intake after the exhaust as far as performance goes, but was wondering if there really is a difference in HP/sound between the 2.25" and the 2.5" Trubendz setup?

Also, just curious what the loudest exhaust system available for our cars was?

Thanks!

Go for a 2.5'' mandrell bent tubing. I'd do a Steeda sri 1st. A great cheap mod is do a bsd plug. Make the motor more responsive & better mpg.

W/ a sri, you don't have to deal w/ any water issues & its easier to get to a sri filter. Jump on the bsd for sure,,,,,

I would of gone w/ a fixed platform (springs/dampers) over those. Do a balance shaft delete= bsd. A great super cheap mod.

Forego the Steeda and just make your own SRI using the factory MAF tube. All it costs you is a little time and the cone filter of your choosing. Mine cost a total of $30 because I bought a $25 filter and a MAF tube from a JY for $4 in case I didn't like the SRI.

I would bet you my milk shake money that your fueling if checked is all over the place with that filter on the MAF like that
