Replacing Tip on Stock Exhaust

I'm looking at replacing the tip on my stock filter back exhaust with a 6"tip. The truck is deleted so no worries about the heat. Not concerned about the warranty either but not really looking at doing a full exhaust. Truck is a 2013. I can't get a straight answer if the stock filter back is a 3.5" or 4". If it is a 3.5", could I make a 4" bolt on work? Hard to find a 3.5" inlet, 6" outlet. I was gonna put a couple of tack welds anyways to hold it. Let me know your opinion and what y'all have done. Thanks in advance

James

I'm interested to know the inlet size for the stock exhaust tip. I may be interested in buying a stock exhaust tip to replace both tips on my MBRP split dual exit exhaust kit. I've been looking to replace my MBRP single tips with double tips, but I can't find anyone who makes double tips with inlets big enough for my MBRP kit. How are you suppose to measure exhaust? The diameter? Also, how would you remove the stock exhaust tip? Aren't they welded on?

3.5" is the size of the exhaust just before the tip.

You replace it by cutting it off either before or after the weld. I suppose you could try grinding it off but that would take more time. As far as putting a 4" inlet tip on a 3.5" pipe, you won't get the tip to clamp down all the way around, it usually won't compress that much, you could try and get it close, then weld as much as you can but the pipe wouldn't be centered.

I sadly didn't measure first and bought a 4" inlet tip. I ended up buying a exh flange reducer that goes form 3.5 to 4 and welded that on the stock exh and then bolted my 4" tip on.
