I can get two super 44 mufflers for free but my sn95 is 2.25 in diameter and the mufflers are 2.5. My question is if I have the exhaust shop adapt it will the difference in exhaust size make it sound bad or butcher the sound

I have the chance to get two free super 44 mufflers that are 2.5 diameter offset in center out. My sn95 is a 2.25 inch offset in and out. My question is will the bend and adapter I will have to have the exhaust shop put on butcher the sound or will it sound as good as a super 44 with the correct diameter and offset

Agree with the above, it is very common practice to use adaptors in situations like yours.

Once upon a time (in 1996) my 95 had the same mufflers added to the stock 2.25" mid pipe in BFE east TX population 1,110, you'll be fine. While you're their ask them how much they'd charge to remove the "pre-cats" and replace the "aft cats" with "high flows." It'll probably be cheaper than an aftermarket mid-pipe and it'll sound just as well if not better and if you have stock cylinder heads it'll be about the same amount of horsepower gain.
