I have definitly thought about downsizing. The stock size is 1.75" and I've thought about 1.5". The problem is finding components that are that small. If I could find a 1.5" in/out CAT, resonator (or glasspack muffler) and muffler I'd consider it. Even finding straight SS pipe and mandrel bends in that size can be difficult. I'd rather not have to deal with a ton of adapters (1.5 -> 1.75) just to piece the thing together either.

Keep the suggestions comming though!

Poke around the whole site,
Stainless works has the flex pipe etc in stainless. They can also make up a whole
system from you using the old one as a pattern. I have been happy with the pipe I have bought from them.

Thanks. I checked out their site which does have a lot of stuff on it. However they are a little pricy. Their mandrel u-bends are $40/ea for 1.75", yikes. I can get u-bends from http://www.mazzurisuper.com for $20/ea. The price on straight pipe is similar, but I'm hoping to pick that up locally to save on shipping.

I could really use some help finding a good (idealy stainless) pre-muffler/resonator and a final muffler. Aftermarket resonators seem to be awfuly overpriced. Right now I'm just using a cheapo $20 glasspack inline muffler and it works alright for quieting things down that extra bit. Any suggestions or websites would be helpful.
