Exhaust Debate

Now, i have read the stickys on both the exhaust and headers. I have a question regarding overall system design before I purchase.

Now, I am under the impression that the diameter of the exhaust that will work best has alot to do with FI vs. NA. A FI needs the most flow possible. NA uses exhaust as scavenging adn too large a diameter is bad. Is this true?

If so, a 2.25" exhaust system would be better for most NA and the 2.5 or 3" systems would be better, I would like to get some information before making my purchases.

Now, I dont mean to be rude, but I dont want opinions or butt dyno results. Thanks.

OBX is crap. Why do you think those parts are so cheap? They aren't a deal, they are cheap crappy knock offs.

No, not unless you want to do something custom.
