Default muffler shop will put in magnaflow muffler, but not the Y-pipe?

when i told them about the y-pipe they look at me like i was stupid and said i allready have a y-pipe and i don't need it.. i just got the magnaflow y-pipe as well.. should i have them put on the muffler and take the y-pipe and havr it done somewhere else, or should i just find another shop and have them do both? thanks guys!

are you the original owner of this truck? if not, maybe the previous owner already changed the y-pipe.

if not then definitely find a shop that will do both at once.

Is there a performance parts shop or local track in your area?
Someone there should be able to direct you to someone who knows a good shop to use.


My 4x4 was done at a quality shop that knew as soon as I asked for a Y-pipe install,
that I would also want mandrel bent stainless steel pipe sections to replace the squash bent sections they remove for a smoother flow.

Stock crush bent y-pipe:

New Magnaflow Y $27


The cheap crushed bent aluminum bargain exhaust shop crap would defeat the purpose of doing a performance Y install (IMHO).
Why? because a single crushed 90 bend can decrease flow by almost 20% , add up a number of bends and you just wasted your money.

Here's mine installed with 2 large smooth transition Mandrel Bent Stainless Steel sections (only $15 ea)

So about $60 in parts, and no more than $90 in labor to get it done right.
