What diameter clamps do I need for resonator delete straight pipe

I am going to cut out the resonators and put a straight pipe in its place. I do not want to weld. Can anyone tell me what size diameter clamps I should use and possible source for these clamps. I plan on using whatever diameter pipe would match up where the resonator was.

It is all 2.25" pipe. The little bullet Resonators are Zero restriction, Straight through perforated core mufflers like below. Did you remove the Big front muffler first? What muffler are you running in the back?

Headers going into high-flow cats going into x pipe with mid Muffler deleted going out to solo Jays. Is there any graduated type of adapters you know of that I can connect the 2.25 to the 2.25?

you should be able to find a coupler at Orielly's, Monument, or any other car parts place. It wouldn't be stainless and it would be best welded but you could use clamps.

Thanks..If - O'Reilly's has them then I will check some of the other high performance places around town. I didn't know they were that easy to come by. My whole thing is the J pipes actually use clamps,. With that being said, it can't be all that bad. I don't live in a high humidity high salt area and I'm not a super freak about the underneath part of my car and its appearance.
