AB Fitment Question

I'm sure there are plenty of suggestions and solutions available here so here is my question. I have a 2013 base automatic with the factory axle backs. A friend gave me his 2013 5.0 axle backs and I want to give them a try. What is the best method to install them? Cut the existing inlet pipes off the factory ones and have them welded on the 5.0 axle backs, or adapt some other way? Has anyone tried to adapt the pipe before the axle and then go larger pipe over the axle to the 5.0 axle backs? I realize the sound won't change much, if any at all, but the look of the 5.0 tips is a big improvement. Thoughts?

It's easy for a muffler shop. It would be a simple weld for them. The thing that sucks is that you're kind of stuck with it. I don't think those mufflers are going to be that great anyway. I could see if they were some GT500 quad tips,but a stock GT muffler I wouldn't do...
