Zl1 exhaust, 2.5 or 3 inches?

Title says it all, im trying to figure out if the stock ZL1 exhaust is a full 3" exhaust or a 2.5 like the SS?

Im hoping its a 3" since 2.5" might be too much for 1100bhp and i really dont want to change it.

Ideas?

Yes it's a 2.5...if your going to give a 480rwhp car 1000+ HP then you would need to upgrade to 3+...along with many other things on the car...also COPO #001 is already on the tracks...

I didnt want to change the exhaust because I wanted to retain the stock butterfly valve functionality, I might just turn up the boost and make up for the power difference
