For what? Bigger piping is better. 2 1/2 inch piping from manifolds recommended.

Past 2 1/2" on our cars and your gonna ruin your exhaust velocity. Gonna lose a lot of low end power since you don't have the power to back up the size exhaust.

I went with 2 1/2". Any bigger would have adverse effect unless you've got some sort of forced induction.
