    That's what it's got now, the shop that did the engine swap skipped reducers and just filled it with slag. That's part of why it's going back to my exhaust shop.

    Oh, ok, so this isn't a direct replacement. I need 2.25, check.

    I've never had such a tough time with "just the tip."

    My quad tips are 2.5" inlet mounted to the factory mufflers. I just had to get a 2" ID to 2.5" OD adapter, trim it to fit and then slam it all together.

    I will get some more pictures next week after the weather calms a bit and the car can get cleaned up.

    I used matte black high temp engine paint and did the tips over a year ago... they still look perfect. The easy way out.

    Good call, I might try this first, if I screw it up then they can get replaced.

    How did you prep them?
