Icon9 Noob :(

So I orderd a set of turn downs for my new exhaust but I am a noob and orderd the 2.5" and the outlets for my muffler are 2.5"! So i was wondering instead of ordering new ones if I could take them to a muffler shop to possibly be made bigger? The turn downs are temporary for now so I dont want to weld them... All in all can I do something or take them somewhere to make them fit?

muffler shop should be able to do that... i forgot what the machine is called that does it, but the place where I got my exhaust done had the machine to do it.

cant just return them or exchange them?

You could try going to an auto parts store and getting an adapter to make it fit.

Yeah the place that did mine expanded the end thing to fit over the muffler. They still welded it on though.

auto parts stores normally have a good selection of exhaust adapters. find one that fits and grab a couple clamps and you can bolt it on yourself
