Key words here are effective diameter. You are right scott.  I did 
however get some custom 3" bent ont my 4kq that made a very noticeable 
difference on performance.  Sounded great too.  It straightened a few of 
the curves in it as well.  Dont recommend it though.  Seemd to hit the 
undercarriage in places, and getting it to stop rattling over bumps was a 
year long chore.  Wouldnt do it again.
