Default 2.5" or 3" exhaust

Im running a high comp b20v, plan on getting a street sweeper header from sigma six racing, what diameter exhaust size is better to run with? 2.5" all the way or 3" all the way? If end up doing 3" will probably use WS2 80mm muffler or 2.5" with magnaflow. any thoughts?

You'll make more power up top with the full 3 inch system, but the lower end might lose a bit compared to a 2.5 inch setup. What compression ratio? What cams? Any head work?

WHY 2.5'' or 3'' exhaust OR 2,75'' or 3'' exhaust ?
3'' in my stock b18 feels good.

You def need to go 3". The less obstructions (bends, flex pipes, mufflers, etc) the faster the exhaust gas can exit. Get some 304SS 3" and roll with it

I do wonder though why do several race teams and such use smaller piping? TODA Racing exhaust is clearly labeled off road use only and their intent is to make the most out of a race motor. A Spoon N1 is a race exhaust and wasn't intended for street use yet the outlet is only 2.5". I understand tracks have sound regulations but there has to be something more to it.

big reason why alot of people use 2.5 on their all motor set ups is because the flow needed for maxium hp is enough. plus its just a way lighter exhaust set up. thats why the bc spec 2 is made that way and only exits at about 3"

but dont get me wrong, i've seen ppl throw on 3" set ups on their all motor and put down some decent numbers. if ur taking EVERYTHING into calucation though like weight, efficiency, etc then i would rec 2.5" for a solid na.

sidenote: is there any heavy block work being done?

The weight between a 3'' and 2.5'' system is minimal. 3-4 lbs isn't going to slow you down.
