Q: Exhaust piping measure?

asked by on

Ok so my car has an exhaust leak and I'm buying a new exhaust to replace it for better sound and more loud. I also want to add an x-pipe but I don't know what size to get the pipe. The exhaust i want to buy says it has 2.275 inch. piping. The x-pipe only has 2.25 or 2.5 inch piping. Which x pipe size do you recommend I should buy to fit the exhaust size of 2.275 inch? Thanks

You should get the 2.25 x-pipe so it can fit inside the 2.27 exit piping.
