I would not do 3 inch pipes, you don't want to over pipe it because you will kill your low end torque. 2 1/2 should be the largest in a system like that. are doing a x pipe? I would just have a shop bend something up with there piping. Unless you are making huge power then the restriction from the pressure bend wont matter.

Dual 2.5" and use an X or H pipe. "True dual" is such a stupid term, the pipes SHOULD be converged correctly at some point.
A 3" single is probably a better overall performer.

single 3in for the win..you dont need duals

"true duals" was just used because some people see two tips and call that dual exhaust. Having a single 3" pipe will give you a smother sound and the "true duals" will a dare I say old school sound. Meaning you will hear the pulses of exhaust with more ease.

X or H pipe for sure. Sounds awful without it imo

if you are going to pick one get a x pipe. but not having one is as rough as it will ever sound. once you combine pulses it becomes smoother.
