Was thinking about running twin two and a qaurter exhaust but heard that one side will be longer then the other as it has to get over the diff and around the fuel tank, this causes uneven exhaust pressures and loss of power. Is this right??

No.

Just ask the people running then and you honestly believe they would put that on there cars if it robbed power?

The extra piping would be less than 30cm so if your that worried just get it dumped at the diff for dyno and drag days.

PM XH5LWEPN he has a dual 2 1/4'' system with hooker mufflers.

when your sitting at the lights with the windows open the exhaust works its way into the cabin. not good
