Default Thinking Of Changing My Mufflers

I already have the ebay catback, but I want to change out my mufflers. I know the piping on a ebay catback is 2.5" and the actual muffler opening is 4". If I decide to weld in the new mufflers (same 2.5" at the pipe and 4" at the tips just like the old ones, just smaller resonator without the muffler hangers) will the sound decrease or increase and can it be done? Also how will these mufflers be hung?

These are the mufflers im planning on getting.

You should be able to get a universal hanger, or strap. As far as sound goes, there's no way to answer that. If you go with a 2 chamber Flowmaster, I'd imagine it would be louder, as far as anything else...I have no idea...

That looks just like the eBay mufflers... Don't they? So sound should be around the same.

i guess you would be going more for the look rather than the sound or performance gain... i am not sure how the CF will hold up against the heat and the elements either..so just think it through before hand....

If they are legit carbon fiber (most likely not) then they would be able to handle anything. Pretty much an entire Formula One car is made of CF!
