Thermostat? Parts store. Tell them what you have, and what you want.

Pipe? You'll have to measure it, unless you put some information in your signature so we know what trim level you have. Assuming it'* a 95?

Too little information.....

You'll regret removing the resonator. Trust me on that. The 92/93 models didn't have one, and I'm damn glad I installed one with my Magnaflow setup.

Diameter is 2.5". If you really want to do something with the resonator, Magnaflow sells a combination hi-flo Cat/Resonator unit.
