FYI it's alumized, not aluminum. It is still a steel pipe but it has a coating or something that prevents corrosion. IMO if you are south of the areas that use salt on the roads no need for SS. I am in florida and bought aluminized. But if I had a little extra money I would have got SS as I intend to keep the truck a really long time...

If you use aluminized, be sure to spray the welded areas with some sort of high heat paint or something to protect it from rust, as the coating will burn off during welding(or be scraped off for welding).

I would recommend stainless over aluminized. Welding dissimilar metals together can be tricky and this is something you really don't want falling apart on you.

When i talked to the shop they said there bends would be very minor restriction but they aren't mandrel bends. I thought they were crimped or not.

Can someone put links when we need x of these and x of these so we know what we should buy?



So if i am understanding correctly...

2x http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...=main&id=10815
2x http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...=main&id=10819

A site that sells them both.

http://www.exhaustsystemsdirect.com/...-Al_10736.html
http://www.autoanything.com/exhausts...A2680A0A0.aspx - y pipe

$232.08 for all 4 pieces
+ $32.95
------------
265.03 totol parts
+85 labor install from shop ( rough guess )
350.03 total to replace pipe.

You can find mandrel bends for much cheaper for sure....but those are the parts you'll use plus the Y itself.

UNBROKEN's right when he says very few shops have the facilities to perform mandrel bends. This is one reason those reputable shops without the facilities will stock several per-fabricated mandrel bend pipes and modify them to specific needs.

I found a very nice shop "Kinney's Muffler Shop" in the DFW area. they quoted me 425 plus tax for the 24in MagnaFlow amd the MagnaFlow Y-pipe installed and Mandrel Bends from the Y-pipe to the Cats..... He is trying to talk me into True Duals front to back for 525, but I don't want it that loud.....

I highly doubt he is using 24in for the true duals. Thats why I'm sure it will be louder, and thats not what I'm looking for.
