[Vwdiesel] exhaust

I have a similar exhaust question:
I picked up a 91 diesel jetta (N/A) for my brother. It looks like someone
removed the 1st of 2 inline mufflers. Well, that section of piping is all rusty
and breaking apart. I would like to find an inexpensive route to fix this, as
he needs an inspection (MA). Does anyone know if the inspection checks for
multiple mufflers? I hope not.
I've heard people using 2.5" exhaust, how much would someone charge for that?
Would it be different price than the stock size? His muffler seems to be good,
so maybe the stock route would be cheaper.
