Thank you again DD. Maybe OBXs being locked into a 2.5 hurts?

I keep thinking about this. If an OBX tri-y had the flange modified at the 3rd Y-merge to go from a 2.5 to a 3 diameter, and a flange welded in that spot, could a 3 dual set up be put in place that might have power closer to the JBAs? Then, all four converters (modified for 3 all the way) could also be placed in a close-to-stock position (for all us California guys). Can ya relate to my curiosity on this?
