Cat back exhaust

Ok, this is probably going to show my ignorance in regards to tuning, but here goes anyways. If I were to order a 2.5" cat back system, how will it attach to the rest of my exhaust system? The rest of the exhaust system is considerably smaller (at least I assume so). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It will bolt right up to your stock exhaust.

Yes all after market will bolt up to what you have stock...From the stock exhaust to the flex..The question is do you want to have perfomance...This will take you to get -from the head to the tip of the exhaust...
