There is no truth to the myth of an engine needing some amount of backpressure to produce good torque. It is from the hot rod days when carbuerated motors would lean out (ie not provide enough fuel) when less restrictive exhausts allowed more air into the engine ... and would end up burning hot and burning exhaust valves.
The least restrictive exhaust, the better. You have a turbo in the exhaust path anyways ... so its not like you can eliminate exhaust backpressure entirely.
