borla and ford racing borla???

Im looking to put exhaust on my car, I asked a few questions awhile back about exhaust. I want to put borla on because i read that it was 3in piping on the site here, but then i found a thread the other day that listed it as being 2.5in piping?? My question is, is borla 3 in piping? On MC News Auto i found Ford Racing Borla cat-back for a good price and was wondering if anyone knows the size on that? is it 3in? I want borla 3in and im just making sure if i buy the FR Borla it is going to be 3in and not 2.5in. Thanks

Why would you want a 3" exhaust? You would only need that in a FI scenario where you were making significant power.
