Default exahust question need help

I have the Bassani axel back. Im wondering with size exhust tubes run from the headers back. Im looking to open up the exhaust. I dont want it that much louder. But When I get on it I can feel a slight hesitation. Im sure this is because the exhaust from the headers back is restricting (factory exhaust still) So Im looking for suggestions.

The pipes are 2.5" in diameter.

I have a brand new Bassani X-pipe with high-flow cats you can buy. There's nothing wrong with it. In fact, I just received it by UPS this morning. I'm just having buyers remorse. It was an impulse buy, and I'd like to sell it if I can.

It also has cat-delete tubes if you want to run it as an offroad pipe.
It's this one.

The pipes are 2.5" just like the stock ones.

I'm having remorse because I like the way my exhaust sounds just fine, and instead of buying new parts, I should be saving money. Like I said, I bought it on a whim, but I was regretting it even as it was being shipped.

no the factory 2.5 inch is more then enough for your car.......LT headers/ O/R midpipe would open it up alot more/make it better flowing (alot more HP) but changing the pipes to a larger size could be bad for it more then good......remember in some cases bigger isn't always better, you still need some backpressure.

Should I combine the long tube headers with the off rode mide pipes. The one thing I want to avoid is making the vehical too much louder.
