Default Final Borla Muffler question for me!

So I ended up ordering the 3"inlet 2.5" dual outlet Borla XS muffler. I have now been reading I should have ordered 2.25" outlet. Just mounting this muffler 2.5" outlet to stock tailpipes-WILL THIS WORK? I am having an exhaust shop do it! Or should I just send it back?

I just copied this from my conversation with a guy last night who ordered 3" in 2.5" when our OEM pipes are 2.25" I would think any muffler/exhaust shop could handle the task.

If you get a muffler with a 2.5" out, you will need some reducers to bring it down to 2.25" which is the correct size for our OEM tail pipes.

It was probably me that had that question. Thanks for the info. I will bring the muffler and see what the shop says! It's funny, the Borla rep gave me 4 mufflers he said would work, and 2 were 2.5 out and 2 were 2.25 out! Funny!
