I have a twin 2.5'' Manta S/S hotdog-muffler system on my cammed VZ Maloo Ute. Have pacemaker headers and hiflo cats. Now ive been thinking of going 3'' as the 2.5'' sounds good but lacks some bass and volume. Would a twin 3'' be more ballsy ? is there much difference id notice by changing ....

You certainly won't lose any performance going up to the twin 3". Volume will increase in all areas. Mine sounds insanely loud at WOT. So much so as i think i'll be changing back to a twin 2.5" Di Filippo when funds permit. However i've run the twin 3" for over 2 years. Still like it but the car was never a daily with it.

I'm talking to a guy at the moment with a twin 3" and he has just been stickered, VZ Maloo, but his is 6.6L and cammed. VERY loud.

Twin 3" will definitely make it llouder, depending on the combo you get, the volume will differ. As you know, the Manta do a hotdog front, resonator rear, or muffler front and resonator rear. If you don't want to go too much over the top, I'd get muffler/resonator.
