The tailpipe was starting to rot off the muffler around black friday. I ordered the Walker 54441 pipe. When it showed up, I was a little disappointed that every bend was rippled like the bellows of an accordian - reducing the diameter (and flow) over the mandrel-bent original. I thought fine... I can put up with that.

Yesterday I pull out the old tailpipe and realized the walker is also a smaller diameter pipe to start with 2¼" vs 2½". Now I think I'm just going to try and patch the old one back on and return the Walker.

Anyone found a jobber tailpipe that's not a downgrade?

Find a good muffler shop who bend their own exhaust tubing from straight stock and let them build your pipes.
2.5 in and No ripples.... :D

It is the Walker... #54441

No muffler shops on this island. I order in, or build my own. I see there's a Dynomax performance pipe now.... # 54288

^ Agreed.

Will be looking for that one when my OE pipe is used up.
