Thank you all for your input.  Most people recommended an adapter pipe of 
some kind.

Unfortunately, my Meineke is not that swift and REALLY LIKES to weld.  I 
took the cheap way out and had them weld it, after their assurances that 
they could cut and splice to a larger exhaust at a later date.  I hope so.

So how does it work?  Jes' fine, thanks.

I lost most of my remaining torque between 1500 and 2000 RPM.  But after 
that it builds and builds and builds... very nice up to 4000 (where I 
stopped testing between the shop and work <grin>).  I'll find out the 
high RPM abilities after work.

The car does seem quicker even though I am carrying around the manifold,
old downpipe, my tools, the spare, and two of my racing wheels (mit tires,
natch).  I think it will be interesting in racing configuration.

And boy is it quiet!

Just kidding.  I think I'm deaf in my left ear from driving it 5 miles 
across town with the leak.
