I like this project- Mike is right, one forgets how close to the Camaro the styling was.
We also noticed the cowboy boots

My plan is to run what I have that 61mm has worked well.
I might try stepping up to a 66 down the road. But I doubt I will need it.

Cobbled together a 2.5 inch downpipe I have a 3” but it sweeps too close to the  inner fender. I can modify it but would have to vent the waste gate to atmosphere what’s the opinion would this affect my wide band reading it’s after the waste gate.

Your wideband will read fine with the gate dumped. Looks good

Next question how much of a performance gain going from 2.5 to 3” they have a very similar shape.

my guess is that if you are making 600 hp it will be noticeable.  If you are making 500 hp, it will be slightly better

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.
