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


DONALDSON X007829
SEAL CLAMP $9.78
$39.12

DONALDSON X007830

SEAL CLAMP $10.36
$10.36

DONALDSON P206279

45 DEG ELBOW 2.5 OD-ID,ALUM $23.45
$23.45

DONALDSON P206339

2.5" 90 DEG ELBOW, ALUMINIZED $28.55
$28.55

Subtotal:$101.48
I had a difficult time sourcing the parts also, but found a place that sold Donaldson parts. I have the 90 and 45 degree on order from a company in Arizona. They had the 90 but had to order the 45 from the manufacturer. The company's website is http://www.filterspro.com/contact.htm.

I am not going the clamp route, I am having mine welded on. There seem to be plenty of muffler shops around me, but nobody stocked mandrel bent elbows (what is scary is that there were a couple of shops that had never heard of mandrel bent exhaust before).

I am still waiting for everything to come in, but when I have everything put in I will post up how it all went.

How far are you from Middletown de? That's where I got mine done and they used all stainless. Scotti Mufller. That's not too far from Philly. I have the same y pipe. They might weld yours in pretty cheap since you already have the pipe from the Y to the cats already done. If you go call to schedule an appt, they stay busy. It took me 2 weeks to get an appt. Had a SS 14 in magna flow installed today.

They are 45 miles away from me so I am going to give them a call on Monday.
How much did they charge you if you don't mind me asking?
Do you have any pictures of the new y-pipe installed?

Thanks...

I have a Y-pipe I wanted to get put on the same time as my magna muffler. The muffler guy told me that if he touched the stock y-pipe it would void my warranty because it affects the cat. converter. Might be a Canadian thing related to emission requirements.

Thoughts?

I had the same thing 2 days ago when I had my muffler shop weld in my Y pipe. Before he did it he told me it would void my warranty on my entire engine because of the decrease in back pressure it would screw everything up. I called 3 dealers. 2 said they have never heard of putting on an aftermarket Y pipe voiding your engine warranty, if anything it would just void the exhaust part of the warranty. The third dealer said that it would definetly void my exhaust part of my warranty but they all agreed that it would def not void my engine warranty. So I had the muffler guy weld it in and then he warned me that the cats might go bad and not to go to the dealer to have them fixed becuase they would charge a fortune and to come see him when they go out. I think he was just scare me into worrying about something I shouldn't be. Basically, do it! It's well worth it, it won't void your engine warranty.
