    Would a factory exhaust from a 6.2 denali or escalade bolt up to a Tahoe 5.3? It sounds better and is larger.

    Good question. Does the Esky or Denali have a dual inlet muffler?
    If it is a single in, I don't see why it wouldn't work. I cant see GM changing the hanger location for the luxury models. Though weirder things have happened :)

    I have both and did some looking, the escalade is definitely bigger diameter but other than that it looks the same. I think all it would need is an adapter to bolt up to the manifolds.

    That was easy :). Yes, I think its a 3" system on the 6/6.2s.
    Cut the two bolt flange and buy a 2.5" to 3" transition cut to fit and welder up.
    That's what I'm going to have to do when I do my exhaust.
