Thats assuming the OP wants the bolt on kit. If he just purchases the muffler he'll need a y-pipe.

Does anyone know what size or a specific y-pipe that could be used to just bolt in, that way I dont have to get a shop to do any adding or welding.

If you want a good sounding truck you need headers

yeah i want long tube headers, but its such a hassle here in cali. Gotta pay big bucks to get them put on, then removed for smog time, then put back on. In addition to finding a shop thats willing to do it. luckily i know a place...

are headers hard on the engine?

Here's my video. Maybe it will be helpful.

headers are on my build plan too, and although Longtubes sound good, for what i use my truck for, shorties might be more practical, and fit the daily driver build better.
