The Magnaflow part#'s are 10736 for the 45* and 10706 for the 90*.

If those are the correct pieces your saying we need 2 of each and the restricted piece under the trans is just a straight piece.

I used one 90 off the driver side cat and the straight section of it replaced the flattened spot under the trans.
I used my super duper Paint editing skills to highlight what part of the mid pipe is what bend...just watch where you cut and how you fit it all together.



I'm absolutely not saying it has to be done how I built mine....I just used mine as an example. Feel free to build yours as you see fit.

Anyone know of a good exhaust shop that does mandrel bent piping around DFW? I'm looking to get a set of 5 inch tips installed, the pipe under the trans replaced, and my Y pipe redone if it needs be.
I'm in the DFW area as well and looking for a shop to do my exhaust too....Keep me posted if you find anyone.....

I will probably just be ordering online and getting installed BUT the issue will be getting a shop to install the pieces I bring to them and understanding what I want.

This place has some pretty good prices compared to Magnaflow. Magnaflow wanted $54 a piece.

Great link....will aluminized steel work? Or something different? SS is only $5 more a bend....is there gonna be any difference, or just longevity?

SS will just last longer. Aluminized I believe has a coating over it, sort of like galvanizing.

If you live near the coast or in harsh weather environments get SS but if not the aluminum is fine.

So we need and outside diameter of 4" and inside 2.5" from what I can tell they only have 3.75" outer with the 2.5" inner. The pro builder kits come with 4 bends 2 45* and 2 90*. If someone could look and see what one we exactly need it would be awesome.
