Wielded in mufflers

Is the stock mufflers 2.25 size? Should I buy 2.25 or 2.5 mufflers? Be doing a muffler swap for now.

A reputable shop can tell you, otherwise crawl under there with a tape measure and find out. If you buy a muffler with a larger diameter input than stock they can also weld in a fitting to make it work.

I think I got 2.5" for mine and the shop had no issue welding them on.

Mine were 2.5. They can weld them easy.

The stock overall diameter for your stock exhaust from your exhaust manifold to the tailpipes is 2.25". But most will upgrade to a 2.5" for more flow and less restriction. You can stay at 2.25" from your exhaust manifold to the muffler, then go 2.5" from the inlet of muffler to the tailpipes. But if you are only changing out the mufflers and nothing else, then stick with stock diameter. If you go 2.5" for the muffler only, but all your piping is 2.25", you have accomplished nothing.
