2 items in play here. Check the specs for the engines for back pressure ratings. If the output of the new engine is much larger it will cause excess pressure and shorten valve life. The other thing is the current condition of the exhaust, does it need replaced?

The only bit people will notice is the final part so run the big exhaust to the last foot an fit a smaller bore chrome tailpipe inside a black high temp painted larger piece. This way a casual glance will see the small chrome bit and you'll have minimal effect in flow.
