    You could get adaptors to match the exhaust pipe size to both a 2" muffler and the 1.75 pipes; or go to a reputable muffler shop and have a 2" set of pipes made and be done with it. 2" is fine for a 2.0, 2.25 for a 2.6. On my 1980 , I run a pacesetter header into 2.5 pipe to a free flow cat, 2.25 from there to a flowmaster that splits out to 2 2" pipes. Great sound and a good amount of backpressure to not lose low end torque. Also have a weber 32/36 carb jetted to match.

    I have seen all different sizes at Advance Auto Parts. They have all of the different size U-bolts to match.

    I grabbed a few at napa before. They always hid them in the back though. You can also buy long lengths and cut to size you need. Of course they aren't the one ones with the section you can overlap if you buy the long lengths. But they do have the assorted angles and straight pieces.

    i need to redo my exhaust, i threw my back pressure off. I had a bright idea one day, that I would create less resistance, so i gutted my CAT, now my truck seems to accelerate like crap, and sounds like a tin can is tumbling around under my truck now! Oh well, i wanted to redo the entire thing anyways, now i just have more of a reason too, i just wont tell my wife its my fault!... lol

    Hey. Things break all the time. Lol. You could always toss a flow master on there or a glass pack instead of getting a new cat.

    Flow masters are great. Smaller the muffler, louder the tone. Cheap ones like rapters are another option. Tone sounds a lot different though. Borla is another option.

    I have the 40 series but it is just a tad to loud for my tastes, when I replace this one I'm going to get the 50 series.

    I will take a short video of my 1980 with a 44 series single in/ dual out so you can hear what it sounds like with the weber, pacesetter header, and free flow cat. I think it sounds much more than a 4 cylinder, but you be the judge.
