Highline vs. Magnaflow

So I'm in the market for a full cat-back system. I've narrowed it down to the Highline Tuning or the Magnaflow 16533. From what I read the Highline has the same size piping as the 330 but the Magnaflow goes to 2.5" piping after section 1. Is the stock 325 piping 2.25" or 2"? I'd like to make the highest performance gains possible, even though it won't be much, and a custom single 3" is out of the question for financial reasons. Any thoughts are appreciated guys. T.I.A.

My entire exhaust system from the header/cats to the tip is ALL Magnaflow - best sound/performance for the lowest investment, period. See my garage.
