So since the transmission shop botched my OEM exhaust when I had my transmission replaced, I am looking at upgrading my exhaust system a bit sooner than I had anticipated. Since I need to replace components, I figured now would be the time to do a mod. I'd like to put in a dual exhaust system that includes both catalytic converters feeding into a Magnaflow X-pipe, which then leads directly to two separate Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers. Getting rid of the stock front resonator, transverse muffler and rear resonator.
In order to research this further, I've got a few questions:
1. What is the pipe diameter for the pipes coming out of the catalytic converters? (RockAuto direct replacement mufflers seem to indicate 2.5" diameter, but I just want to be sure. I've seen a lot of posts referencing 2.25"...)
2. With the stock front resonator, transverse muffler and rear resonator deleted, what should I be looking for in terms of the OFFSET for the inlet and outlet of the two Flowmaster 40 series mufflers?
(Yes, I realize that I need to have a port cut in the rear fascia to allow for dual exhaust outlets.)
I'm assuming that once I source both mufflers and the X-pipe, that this should be a fairly straight-forward migration. (Am I right?) Most of this is going to end up being piping...
