    These have a 3-1/2" outlet with a 4" o.d. Tip. I think what your asking is the 3" inlet that they offer. I'm not sure about that since the V has 2-1/2" exhaust...

    I have Gibson as well, IMO the sound fits the character of the vehicle. I also like the tips and how the mufflers hang. There are some Gibson sound clips on YouTube.

    I got a set coming. I want to take them to a shop in order to avoid the driver side hanger thing.

    Re: Merry Gibson exhaust Christmas to me

    The gibson exhaust comes in two flavors:

    Gibson 616000 Axle-Back Exhaust Stainless Steel w/ High Polished Stainless Tips for 06-08 Cadillac STS-V 4.4L/Supercharged
    Gibson 316000 Axle-Back Exhaust Aluminized Steel w/ High Polished Stainless Tips for 06-08 Cadillac STS-V 4.4L/Supercharged

    It comes only in a 2.5" pipe and single round tips.

    While it is "made for the V" it seems that it works on the non-V V8 as well but there is some alignment issues for the Driver's side pipe (not sure if that is specific to non-V cars or not).

    I had it installed over the weekend. Simply Awesome! Sounds like you driving something really special and when you get on it it just gets better.

    AutoAnything shows a 2.5" inlet and a 3" inlet when placing the order...not sure why this is. I didn't check the part #'s but maybe it's a typo for the s.s. and alumi coated.

    The Gibson site doesn't list a 3" pipe option.
    The installation material only comes with a 2 1/2" exhaust clamp....

    Stainless install guide (sourced from the autoanything site for the supposed 3" pipe):
    http://b.cdnbrm.com/images/info/gibson/616000.pdf


    Aluminized install guide (sourced from the autoanything site for the 2.5" pipe):
    http://b.cdnbrm.com/images/info/gibson/316000.pdf

    So the moral of the story is they only offer a 2.5" pipe and the only difference between them is the body of the muffler being Aluminized Steel or "409L" Stainless Steel w/ 4" OD Round Slash-cut Intercooled "T304" Stainless tips on both.
