MBRP exhaust question

Does MBRP make any of their exhausts in 2.5 inch diameter at the connection with the CATS or are all their setups 3 inches?

I have Kooks high flow CATS on my car hooked up to long tubes and spent a good amount of money on them. the CATS are 3 inches at the connection with the headers and 2.5 inches at the other end.

Just wondering if i MBRP makes an exhaust to fit this set up or if there is a way i can work around the difference in diameters.

They will work just fine, I have the same set up, Kooks headers with there high flow cats, the MBRP is 2.5 where it meets the cats then goes to 3in, you even use the OE wide band style clamp to mate the two together. The system goes together nicely, fits well.

That will go for any cat-back that will hook to the factory headers/mid-pipes. Unless you buy and exhaust from header to exhaust tip the cat-back will more than likely have a 2.5" inlet....even if it's a 3" exhaust.
