Ive had both on my 2010 NT Auto and I couldn't notice any difference between the 2.75 BD and the 3.00 Scotts Rods one I have on now.

If you believe it or not that's up to you but I thought the op should be aware of the possibility.
This has been discussed before. Plenty of people are running 3 inch exhausts on their Pajero's, including myself, and have never experienced any over-boost - ever. In previous threads on this topic some people have pointed out various other makes and models of vehicles have known issues with over-boost when larger exhausts are fitted - so blanket statements are made and conclusions are drawn that it will be an issue on the Pajero as well, but it appears not to be for most.

In regards to your comments that a 3 inch is totally unnecessary. A turbo charger works best when the pressure differential across the turbine is maximised. The best and easiest way to achieve this for most people is to have zero restriction / back pressure on the outlet side of the turbine (ie, the exhaust). Hence why the largest and least restrictive exhaust will give you the best outright performance and responsiveness. In theory the 3.2 engines may only need a 2.75 inch exhaust to achieve this, however factor in weld protrusion inside the pipes, mismatch of pipes when welded together, mismatch of flanges and gaskets, friction losses from bends, back pressure created by mufflers etc etc, and what you end up with is a systems that flows much less than 2.75 inches....

Hence why it makes sense to fit the largest practical exhaust which helps negate and offsets these common issues when exhausts are constructed. The other consideration is that 3 inch pipe, mufflers and components are way more common to source than 2.75 inch. Every exhaust shop carries the stuff. So if you ever need to have repairs done to a 3 inch exhaust you'll find it will be much easier and cheaper, and you'll have more choices of mufflers, than 2.75 inch.

Unless you have space limitations under your car that requires you to fit a 2.75 inch exhaust, a 3 inch exhaust will work just fine, likely perform better and probably be cheaper to purchase than the 2.75 inch exhaust anyways

Another member of the 3" gang here - no overboost issues since installation over 4 years ago.
