    Im looking at getting a wicked flow, dual exhaust, the problem is the only ones Ive seen on the site have a 3" inlet, and from what I understand the stock piping on my Tacoma is 2.5". So my questio is either can I make this muffler work with the 2.5" pipe, is there an adapter or something? Or am I just missing the 2.5" inlet somewhere on their site? Also, how does the pipe size impact performance? Im guessing that the smaller the dialeter, the more pressure the exhaust flowing through, and therefore mor power. Is that right?

    You can have an 2.5 to 3" adapter installed for the muffler.

    I am sure that most Muffler shops have the means to match the tubes together. They can flare tube openings or they can use reducers. Please post some pics and sound clips when you get the chance.:D
