Muffler/Piping Question

Hey. I finally decided on the brand of muffler i want:Thermal. I heard some people saying that theyare pretty quiet mufflers. I just have a few questions before i order it though.
I have a stock exhaust/piping on my 99 prelude. i dont know the stock piping dimensions for the stock piping but i think the muffler has either 2.25' or 2.5 inlet. i was wondering which thermal muffler would fit?
http://www.thermalrd.com/mufflers.htm
which muffler dimensions will look good on my prelude?
which exhaust tip do you guys suggest?
how much do you think itll cost for a shop to install it?

thanks to all the moderators and members for the help.

imo a 4in tip is kind of over kill but everyone there own...as for how the installation depends on your local muffler shop here they'll weld it on for about $20 hope that helps a little

I think stock piping is approximately 2" ID, but I could be wrong about that.

stock exhaust pipping is 2.25" i believe....as for a shop, i would take it to a local shop, not a big name one...its cheaper and have more freedom to work with you on what you want.
