I got a 2.5" stainless, mandrel-bent downpipe from Buschur for my 2G AWD, and it fits well, no banging. However, I had it installed along with my custom exhaust, and the shop welded on a hanger, since it didn't come with one.
But it's a nice piece. I think they sell it for 250 bucks.
Just one more option.
