would this thing restrict air flow alot being only 2"?... does anyone think it would be possible to cut off the top 2" piping (to muffler) and weld in 2.5"...prolly using the 2.5" from the stock exhaust where i would put the cut out in.... I like the idea of the cable cutout instead of the electric or manual that you have to unscrew...what do you guys think?

Yeah to small. Your exhaust is only as wide as the thinnest point. you might as well put a full 2 inch exhaust on. I am sure someone will disagree with me.

The only thing you are going to gain from that is noise...
i know... im not looking for performance from it....

what do you guys think about the pipe replacement?... taking off the top 2" pipe and puttin on a 2.5"

Why not just get a cutout that has a 2.5" diameter so that all you have to do is just plop it in?

After re-reading it...I get it now, haha...

It is still going to be a bottleneck regardless because if you had the cutout enabled it would still have to go though the 2" hole...

To make it work you would pretty much have to re-engineer the whole cutout because of the way the 'flap' on the inside works...it would be a lot of work with no positive end result other than louder exhaust...


If you are set on having a cut out your best bet would be to find a 2.5" one from Jegs or Summit...here's some links:

i dont want an electric one, nor do i want a regular manual one... i like the idea of the cable one because its cheap and i can do it from inside the truck....
