        Hi Greystag,

        If you are looking to just replace the tail pipe section with a large bore from one of the main suppliers, the diameter is two and a half inches at the outlet under the bumper. There is no difference in pipe size as these directly replaced my small bore tail pipes. If your doing it to get a better sound, don't bother, my small bore tail pipes made a better sound than the large bore does. If you do go ahead I would strongly advise you to view before you buy, I didn't and the finish at the end of the pipe outlet that you see under the bumper is very poor. looks like they have been cut off with a blunt hacksaw.

          A local guiy is making me a set up that are 2 1/2 inch right to the joint, didnt expect it to affect sound a huge anmount but in my opinion will look better although not original.

            The 'bible' (James Taylor's The Restorers Guide ) states "the Mk11 Stags had smaller-bore tailpipe outlets, which are in fact entirely cosmetic....." - however it doesn't give details of what sizes the two different ones are.

            Cheers
