any auto parts store should readily stock those

if you don't wanna do that, a Google search will turn up numerous results

You say a bushing..

You are looking for the piping reducer right? All the parts stores in my area carry them. Maybe ask at the counter or try a Napa.

yes but specifically the bushing. all of the autoparts stores carry adapters, but i need a bushing because i do not want to increase the length of the pipe, not to metion a bushing will be a cleaner install over an adapter anyday

NOW I know what you're talking about. A bushing in that application would be HORRIBLE for exhaust flow. It would be a restriction, rather than a smooth transition.

That'* why you can't find one. You need a REDUCER. Nobody makes a bushing for the reason I stated.

Do NOT make a bushing. You'll rob what power you have left in your LN3.

A reducer is cheaper, and why do you need it anyway? What'* wrong with the stock exhaust?

Are you INCREASING the diameter? If so, why?

Use adapters. Not bushings.
