Well, I didn't find Gordy'* post...I guess you are wanting to caution about going too big and reducing flow velocity.

But did find this thread:
3" Double Barrel

I can't find it. Recently SSEi95 who did a 3" exhaust mentioned it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

I had 3" mandral bent with a magnaflow muffler and cat/res delete. It did real well in the high end but I did loose a little low end. I'd say 2.75 is plenty for the high end modded engine (atleast the kind we see here on BC) and 2.5 is best for most. I'd also leve a highflow cat in.

You need no more than a 3" mandrel bent downpipe (can be custom made)
and a high flow cat.

Where are you from?
From your nick name, i can assume you speak french, you can PM if you need help in french.

We are only 2 here speaking french.(from what i know)
