So Mr. Tim, I'm getting ready to pick up some piping, would you say I should get 2 45* angles as far as bends? I can pick up basically any piping I need from a local shop and want to keep the bends mandrel.

oh i get it.. you're saying you could fit it diagonally in there. maybe have to play with the right inlet/outlet offsets to squeeze it in.

I'd get at least a 180.

I'm loving the pictures in this thread. I'm going to have to make my own pretty soon, but I want to reuse my 2.25" Magnaflow and see if I can make a dual setup out of it..trying to figure out if there's room.

My 22 inch Magnaflow 3 inch. Ignore the shitty welds. I pretty much learned to weld by building this exhaust.

FINISHED AND INSTALLED IT TODAY. WENT FOR A TEST DRIVE






























































































HOLY **** I LOVE THIS EXHAUST!!!! ZOMFG, TO THE PEOPLE THAT SUGGESTED I GET THE BIGGEST CANNISTER, THE 22", THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!



IM SO HAPPY I CAN'T SIT STILL



The sound is pure SEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
So quiet, barely louder than stock, yet so smooth and nice. And the power gain? HOLY CRAP seriously I didn't think it would be so much better. Spool is increased by almost a full 1k rpm, and its just SO MUCH MORE VIOLENT



Ok, need to calm down. LOL
But seriously, WOW.

I like how you tightened up the entry/exit bends....mad skills put to good use.

I feel like I'd be an idiot not to follow suit after reading your first ride review.
