    i have a summit exhaust on my truck it has the 3 in. inlet and dual 2.25 in. tailpipes. my problem is the other day i heard a noise comming from the truck. i got underneath to look for a possible culprit cause it sounded like metal on metal come to find out there was a 3 inch crack in the muffler:realmad:. I want to get a new muffler thinking flowmaster bu all the mufflers i can find besides the summit are 2.5 outlet and i don't want another summit. my question is on my current muffler the tailpipes go inside the outlets on the muffler, so are they 2.5 outlets and my current pipes will work or do i need all new pipes two? i have a kid due in a couple weeks so trying to get this fixed as cheap and fast as i can without being extremely cheap about it. thanks in advance for the help and i hope this makes sence.

    You can get adapters to go from 2 1/2 to 2 1/4. You just need to get a Flowmaster that is shorter than your current muffler, or if you have a straight section at the front end of the tailpipes you can cut down.
