what size motor do you have? 1 1/2 is a little big for a stocker IMO, but of the 2 I'd go for that one/

If you have something more performance oriented you might be better off with the larger exhaust, but it really depends on how you're set up and whether your heads are breathing hard enough to need that extra pipe.

I have compared a lot of engine specs from vaious cars and found exhaust dia tends to follow exhaust valve dia. Also throttle bore tends to follow the intake falve size. So to answer your question stock 1 3/8 best, 1 1/2 work and would not use 1 5/8 unless bigger heads used now or later.
