Recommendation for Headers/Exhaust on 416

I would like your input on headers/exhaust for my set-up. Mostly street, but will see some track time.

416 ci
10.3:1 CR
2.02/1.60 Home ported X-heads with valve job
Comp Cams Flat Tappet Hyd 240/246 @ .050 .507/.510

Are 1 5/8" primaries to small? I notice most of you run 2.5" pipes. Is 3" too large. I know that I want turndowns near the axle because I don't care for visible tips. Anybody have any experience with the Dynomax headers? Also thinking about 2.5" or 3' Dynomax Race Bullets because I want it loud. I know TTI's are the way to go, but I am on a tight budget.

Any input would be appreciated, pros, cons, etc. Thanks.
