There're standard classic VW Beetle pea shooters. Yes, same diameter as stock mufflers. I switched them out in less than 5 minutes. Just loosen two muffler clamps and remove mounting bolt. Slide pea shooters on and tighten stock clamps....that's it. They even clear the heat shields which have slight curve in them just past the header/muffler junction. They are 9 7/8 inces long. I found them on eBay for $25 a pair, shipped from Ohio Style Garage. I took a short ride with them on today but swapped them back out for the stockers until I get my jets and filter.....but, I did notice a distinctive VW "fweep" when rolling hard on and off the throttle - not alot, just every so often and not very noticeable. I picked up on it because I drove a '73 Beetle for years when I was younger. It may not even be the pea shooters as I've noticed a similar occasional high whirr at high RPM even with the stockers on. In any case, I don't think they're too loud and I think the occasional "fweep" make it sound more European....I don't want to be mistaken for a Harley.
