Not knowing the brand, you have to get 2 bolt flange kits that can be welded on. It looks as if your header collector has a flare to them at the end, that is to me a problem as the flange ring inside OD should be smaller than that flare at the end and the flange ring would just be a slider, and would not be welded. Is the collector itself 3" before the flare or are you measuring at the flare to get 3"? The X you have is a system called ball and socket. The X is the ball portion and the header is the socket. Combined they form a seal based on a ball and socket method. What I would do is get a collector flange kit and have it welded onto the header collector.Welding it would help ensure it to hold up to vibration and cracking. But then again it is the quality of the welder that would ensure the resistance to crack from bottoming out and vibration.

The kits should be available at any auto parts store.

The slip fit will not work unless the header flange is bellowed to accept the ball of the X-pipe. If the header collector is completely round with no bellow you can not mate the 2, based on the pics you provided. You would have to get a bellowed flange kit to acept the X-Pipe. Only other way around that is to cut the ball portion of the X-Pipe off to slide it into the collector portion.

In your pics in the other thread, you have so many going on at once, the X-Pipe is backwards and shows the socket side at the headers. So yes you can slide them on and clamp it. I do not know why you have 10 different threads going on at the same time for the same relative thing.

Anyway, hope it works out well for you.

Don't use that they don't seal good.

Here are the ones I use. No leaks works perfectly.

It may
Good thing is if you buy one that is slightly to big as you tighten it will form to the pipe, and fit like a glove

The link provided to you by rapinator is a good one, the clamps are also known as band clamps. They have a bead of tar on each side to form a tight seal on both ends. The band clamps come in a wide varity of sizes, and they are sized like what you want, 3" on one side and 2.5 on the other. But I would buy them from Summit Racing than LMR.
