ATTN: Exhaust Experts

Hey all!
My brother is upgrading to a T3 in the next week or two, and being a true aussie bloke, is already thinking about needing more power... He has been told that the exhaust flanges are smaller than they could be (or something to the effect - for ADRs), and that increasing the size of them will help it all flow MUCH better and pick up some well needed KWs
Is this lagit, or just s*** ?

THanks!!!

Watched a T3 exhaust being replaced - those holes in the flanges are bloddy tiny! Could also be to create more back pressure for torque? I'm not an engineer :s6:
