In order to truly impact "backpressure" and how it affects the engine is if you went with piping with the diameter of a coffee can. A half inch to an inch at a time is not going to adversely impact engine cycle.

You are not impacting "Backpressure" by oversizing header primaries, you are impacting velocity of the exhaust gasses.
