On my 5.0 AU ute I have a 3" Lukey exhaust and it tends to drone a bit until the exhaust system heats up then it sounds tough so there might be a chance you could get a system that drones a bit if it's 3".

A twin 3 is a little large for a 260 Muzz, You'll make your bottom end torque worse. What cat back system are you currently running?
I tried removing the rear muffler on my Pursuit with a twin 2 1/2 X-force system but it was just too loud and actually sounded s**t to boot.

If your going for top end power or plan a turbo or supercharger down the track a 3" system is worth thinking about, maybe a system with an Xforce Varex muffler would be alright so
You can stop the system from droning/ being to loud when your just driving around town?

Twin 2 & 1/2" with 3' hotdogs sound pretty good......but thats on a Cobra kit car.

Dynomax VT mufflers apparently eliminate droning and I've seen them for sale on ebay too. Might be worth looking into if you get a 3" system and experience some droning.
