Youll have to have a custom DP, its not that hard for any decent shop. Most good muffler shops can fab you one if you need it.

Yeah, if you cut up all the pipes to make them work. you also have to mount the IC.

My mani and down pipe and some other jazz cost me 700bux..but this is a one off piece so strength and efficiencies might not be up to par with begi as they test their models ect.

Call BEGI and tell them what you want, they'll tell you what it'll cost. They can fabricate anything.
