Where to find 3.5" exhaust tubing in SE michigan

I recently purchased a 95 F250 PSTD and I'm looking to remove my cat and muffler and replace it with a piece of 3.5" exhaust tubing. I'm having trouble coming across an auto parts store that carries anything larger than 3". I assume I could buy a hunk from a muffler shop, but does anyone know where i could find some otherwise? I'm in southeast michigan in the Romeo/Washington twp area. Any input is appreciated...

Save your money and throw a 3" DP to 4" pipe on when you can. You're probably looking at around at least $120 for a cat delete and muffler delete, as opposed to $450 for an entire system.

thats the plan in the future, just looking to get some nice sound until i can afford to do it up nicely with a tip and all that.

Thanks to everyone else for the responses, I will try NAPA.

If you're handy with a welder it possible to scrap the muffler by cutting it out and changing the exit point of the exhaust from after the rear wheel to before without using a delete pipe....but i've always been a fan of dumping exhaust in front of the wheel.

no it's a flange that bolts to your cat. If you're deleting cat and muffler you're better off just buying a down pipe for $90 shipped and then getting adapters off that... then the down pipe is done when you want to do the rest of your exhaust
