new tips on exhaust + muffler combo

i have a 2.5 inch custom brullen cat back.the muffler looks like the oem prelude muffler but a bit thicker. now i want to change the muffler to a 5zigen muffler. what would that change? the 5zigen muffler is 2.25 however. will it directly bolt on? will the sound change dramatically? will i loose power?

It wouldn't change power whatsoever. No gains, and probably no losses. All it's gonna do is change the sound. As far as a direct bolt on, I doubt it. It will probably need to be welded, depending on if you're using the flanges or not.

Re: new tips on exhaust + muffler combo

Mikey is right. I doubt it will bolt on since it sounds like you have a "custom" exhaust that has been welded together. You will not lose any power. Sound will be the only thing that you will be changing and how dramatic it will be, I have no idea. I have never heard a 5zigen exhaust before.

but the custom cat back is 2.5 and then the 5zigen tip is 2.25. it'll restrict some air flow wouldnt it? therefore it'd loose a little power? i like the look of the tip. the 5zigen isnt loud either

Re: new tips on exhaust + muffler combo

its so far back that .25" will make a very very minute difference. if you lose anything it will be less than .5hp

Re: new tips on exhaust + muffler combo

i have never heard that exhaust but since were on the subject has anyone heard the "universal muffler" made by skunk 2? i already have 2.5" piping and i want a new muffler without paying for the entire system just for a muffler and they dont sale the popular ones individually, or atleast i havent seen it

Re: new tips on exhaust + muffler combo

welding will certainly be a necessity. just make sure you tac it and take a good look at it before you completely tig it. if it's off a bit it'll definitely bother you enough to where you chop it and reweld it...
