Factory pipe diameter is 2.75" but not mandrel bent. Sound would be better but no difference in performance.

Would you still retain the resonator to prevent drone?

yeah i would buy a new one... and as for performance i think i would gain a few because even though its slightly smaller its going to be straight threw no restrictions so i might be ok in that aspect:thumbsup:

True, getting rid of the suite case underneath helps a lot of restriction. I bought myself a Magnaflow Cat-Back. I got it for a good deal.

If you get this done, definitely post up a video.
