Default SSEi to GXP exhaust upgrade

Thinking of upgrading my cat-back exhaust. Is the GXP exhaust bigger (2 1/2"-3") then the SSEi, would it bolt right on

It is bigger and does bolt in place. SawGunner put GXP exhaust on his SSEi so he can give you the complete details. He posted a video of it in his one thread of how it sounds.

there is really no need to go 3" all the way back the GXP exhaust is really good at flowing plus it sounds deeper than the SSEi one. all you have to do is cut yours off 3" behind your res and the GXP will slide right over it and weld it on
