Has anyone here did the DIY with the clamps as BlackRamHemi's friend did?
How is it holding up? Where did you source the parts?
I could not find anything locally, and the only place online is http://www.finditparts.com and it comes to

Seems like some people were able to find a shop to get the Y-pipe welded in for $150. Can anyone recommend any shops around Philly area?
So far I am leaning towards doing it myself with the clams, was just wondering how they would hold up in the long run. Also what do you guys use to cut the pipe, i was just going to use a sawzall, but if there is better way...please let me know.

Thank you very much.
