Here's the conversation we've been having through email:
I think that my 2012 Ram 1500 QC is a 3/2.25, though, not a 2.5" in. I just want to make sure whether I'll need that or the #12388 (a 3") before you order, which is what I believe that I've been reading many of the new Ram owners using. Is there a way to check on this before ordering the part?
We would be using adapters/expanders to make the 2.5 in. fit both ends. This is alot easier than expanding 2.24" to 3". Let me know if you have any further questions.
From what I understand it's not the 3" that would need expanding, but from what I was told, it's the 2.25 that would need to be adapted to the 2.5 and the 3" would fit stock.
Is there a way you could check with the Ram specs on that?
we would be expanding the muffler outlet to 3" to slide over the stock pipe, then using an adapter to jump from 2.25" to 2.5". It could be done the way you mentioned before with the 3" muffler, its just more work and the smaller oulet muffler costs a few dollars less. Essentially you would be accomplishing the same thing either way without sacrificing flow or sound.
What do you guys think?
