Ox-y-GenIII My exhaust was cut unto 3 pieces that could be put back together if need be, but I probably will never put it back on. If I decide to get rid of it ill bring it to the scrap yard for a little money.

AZfocus2012 I was also looking into the magnaflow system for mine. The magnaflow instructions show the stock exhaust being cut into two pieces, one cut at the front and one by the rear suspension. If I had a muffler shop do mine I was going to specify that it be cut as such so it could be sold or reinstalled if a future owner didn't want the magnaflow, or if I decided to remove and sell the SS magnaflow and CAI to make the car more marketable to the general public.

meattooth Someone on here is your best bet. Stainless doesn't wear out so demand for stock is low. Collision repair or someone wanting to put the stock back on to sell the car are primary buyers.

When most places remove old parts, the just cut them up any old way as scrap!
They may ask you to PAY a little more to save the complete ehaust in one piece. As it will be harder to remove. Or, just ONE extra cut would be OK.
Just not a dozen 6" long bits..

If you had ASKED in advance to keep it in one piece, and return it to you. Store it in your garage and sell it years later for $100.
As is, the throw it away, or sell it to a scrap yard.
