mts,

There is no simple answer to your question but since you state that you are going to be doing little high speed/ high rpm stuff with it you may want to consider this one general rule of thumb....Smaller diameter pipes produce low- to mid-RPM torque and larger diameters produce mid- to high-RPM torque. Low rpm + big dia. exhaust = reduced velocity and more heat loss, neither of which you want. Bigger ain't always better.
