Mine's the Thrush 24214 and it's inside tube measures 2-1/2". Inlet & outlet are for 2-1/2" pipe. The inside tube is smoothly perforated with no protruding zits or louvers.

2.9 to 4.0 or 302? Why not!

Isn't it true that those "louvers" will restrict flow? Yeah I thought about a 302 swap, but I've decided that if I was going to swap the motor, then I would drop in a 4.0L V6 instead. It will drop right in, I can use the same tranny and driveline, and I have more upgrades to choose from for the 4.0L. But thankyou all for your help.

Anything that protrudes into the path of air will restrict the flow to a degree. It will also add air turbulence. Some turbulence can be good when it deals with intake but for exhaust you pretty much want the gasses to flow as easily as possible.
