problem fitting 03 exhaust tip on 01 muffler

Hey guys

I got the 03, 04 exhaust tip and thought I can just cut off my old tip and weld it on. I took it to a custom muffler shop and they said it cant be done because of the pipe thats already in my existing tip which will show through. He also said that the opening of the 03 tip is bigger than hole of the muffler and it will leak.

Has anyone tried this? any advice?

Thanks

You could probably make this work, but you'll need to cut off the tips on your muffler, and then weld on a bracket that the 03/04 tips can bolt to.
