Lightbulb Borla Exhaust Tip fit?

I bought a stainless slanted, rolled edge Borla exhaust tip for the 2010 Couture. The last time, I just bought the MOPAR stainless tip with pinch clamp, and didn't have any "issues".

My exhaust pipe is 2.25 inch diamter, and the 2.25 inch inlet Borla tip does not fit "over" the exhaust pipe.
Should I have bought the larger diameter inlet tip (2.5 inch)?
Should I do some slot cuts in the end of the exhaust pipe to allow for a smaller diameter fit?

Suggestions?
(No answer from Borla tech yet)

Thumbs up Re: Borla EXhaust Tip fit?

I would prefer to have a little slip-fit first, and spot weld once or twice.
(Thanks! I did have that in mind.)

well when i got my ricer tip, i went to install but it didn't fit.

the red arrow points to the pipe that's supposed to fit over the stock tail pipe, but they were the same size. It's never been used either cuz shortly after i got my supper 44 installed.

Cool Re: Borla EXhaust Tip fit?

The answer to the Borla Tip Size Question:

After exchanging a few messages to be sure the sizes and parts #s were correct, this is confirmation of matching inlet sizes.

Quote:
Donít worry, you did buy the correct tip. You were right when you assumed that you were supposed to match the inlet size to your pipe diameter. This tip is designed to be welded on so it is not supposed to slide inside your stock pipes. Even when a tip is designed to be installed with set screws or clamps, we may still suggest you weld it on because this will provide the most secure fit.
Thank you,
xxxxxxx
