Default Where to get some exhaust tube, components at best price...

Been plinking around looking for stuff to do up my exhaust.. trying to find the best prices and the right shiz as well.

Just seeing if anyone has some good sources to go to? I've been to JC, summit, Jegs, and a few google searches, hoping what I came up with is good, but I'd love for someone who's done this before to tell me they can get it cheaper...

I'm doing a 3" from DP back exhaust, 5x11x22 Magnaflow muffler (ala Y8s, ) and V-bands, for sex appeal. All stainless.

Here's what I'm looking at getting thus far:

2 or 3 of these bitches
This muffler so shiny

and so far, this is my best bet for tubing... I don't own a camaro, but jegs..

I can haz your thots?

This is for an FMII w/(hopefully) ARtech downpipe.

Billings, MT, is full of Tish. I've looked somewhat, but haven't got much faith. I'm going to try Pacific steel for the tubing (they might have it in 16Ga, but not sure if they got stainless) and I don't know where to get the muffler/v-bands locally, if at all. Nothing like a Summit or etc around here, just Napa/Oriely's and the like.

I'll check out columbia. ty.

******* awesome thread... thanks for the 39$ v-bands. the slightly cheaper ones are real v-bands, just more cheaply made. think i'll go with the nicer ones.

This should save me a bit of cash, the good vbands I wanted were 80 or 100 bucks almost for 2flanges and a clamp. lol f that.

Sweet. gonna get this rolling soon I hope. well, 6 weeks when my turbo parts come back to me....

Thanks all!

Just got the stuff last night. 91 bucks for the center/offset ss muffler in 3in, bought a builder kit from mandrelbends, 2 vbands and 5ft ss tube. Hope its enough. Ill get the total later exact, but it was about 375, not terrible for a good 3in ss exhaust. That means im under 1k for a full 3in ss exhaust with sgdp for my fmII. Cheap bastards rejoice. Granted if I was real cheap id hae done aluminized, but what evs.
