UK Custom Exhaust Details - UK Tundra Owner

Hi ,
I'm a new member, I live in England and have a question for all of the experts out there, if you don't mind?

I own a 2003 2WD Tundra SR5 access cab, which is, with the exclusion of those few Tundras owned and run by the dwindling numbers of US forces stationed in the UK, one of only approximately 5 Tundras in the UK.

Although the general availability of spares in the UK is OK, being available via local Toyota franchises and companies like RockAuto.co.uk, parts and information related to "upgrading" these trucks is very sparse, not least because customising vehicles in the UK is frowned upon and makes vehicle insurance costs increase almost exponentially. However, there is almost an expectation that US vehicles imported into the UK will invariably have been altered at some stage and as owners of US imports have to have specialist insurance in order to enable the vehicles to be driven on UK roads, this does not tend to effect the costs thereof.

I am thinking about having a customised, stainless steel, cat-back exhaust manufactured and / or installed, with the pipes exiting either side and to the back of the rear tyres but need to know what diameter tube the exhaust should be, are there any manufacturers already out there who make such a thing and any other information I might need to give the supplier / manufacturer / fitter and does anyone know of any companies who make or supply these exhaust systems who can inexpensively export them to the UK?

Any information you can provide me with would be very appreciated.

Auto anything.com, performance products.com both Cary kits from Borla, magnaflow, Flowmaster to name a few. I have a 2003 SR5 with 230,000 miles on custom duals from the cat back and exiting the right side. Sounds great with Flowmaster muffler. Runs better and gets better mileage from 4.7 V8.

Unfortunately autoanything.com doesn't export to the UK and performance products.com deals with Porsche and Mercedes Benz products only.

Not much help really.
