Why weld. for the pipes, you can just use stainless clamps.
( $140 for that little bit of work.. Geez.. that is really high priced. your mechanic must hate doing exhaust)
For the exhaust hangers... Hmmm...At worst a strap with a hanger on the strap..
I kind of want the Ford Racing exhaust, but i may leave the middle muffler in place, and just have the Ford Racing from that point.
Though i really really like the Borla with the dual tips.

Only problem with clamps is they like to fall off after while. Notice your exhaust isn't clamped from the factory. I am leary about getting the Ford Racing exhaust is because it is all clamps as are most exhaust kits. I am sure you can have someone weld it but by then It cost about the same as having a custom exhaust fabricated.

First post...

So I'm gathering that everyone that has done this has done it themselves? I'm pretty handy with cars (better on older cars), but I'm not touching my new car.

So $140 is high, what would be a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance.

I just took mine to a local exhaust shop that I have used for a few years, told them what I wanted and took less then an hour.

Now if your handy and got the tools to do it, its not very hard

Does any one have the dimensions for an aftermarket exhaust tip? I want to get this done but my local shop didn't have any tips. I was looking for the inlet/outlet measurements. Thanks

I LOVE the way it sounds!!! I favor it over the FSWerks actually. I HATE a raspy ricey exhaust grumble and pop. This is all low and throaty. If it wasn't for the performance side of things, I'd just stick with this. But she'll do for now. Thanks again RED for taking the first steps!!!
Where on ebay did you purchase your tips?

Did you just do an exhaust dumb before the rear bumper?
