The stock Meteor flies fantastic when upgraded to run on 5S. So that increase in thrust/flow seems very well suited to the stock exhaust ducting still. That doesn't mean it couldn't go a bit faster if narrowed down, but seeing it runs so well it is bound to be near optimal already.
So any higher power system is unlikely to need narrowing down either.
I would think a thrust tube - which will give benefits in its nice shape and smoothness - just run out to the stock exhaust size anyway, would be fine.

If you make it "taped up" (which most cases people do) you can do varied exit size static thrust tests, or even flight tests, easily too.
I guess I should try a thrust tube in mine, but it has been so good anyway I just have not bothered. I am not after a top speed... but I like fast jets!!! LOL. And it is fast already!
