The track I run at shut down a month ago! Rain every week! Better safe than sideways!!!!

Yes...but I got caught up on Paul_P being a wise guy.

I don't think anybody makes a true dual exhaust kit for my car that doesn't dump before the rear axle. I would have to fab a custom one up myself. I've thought about it but I really need a lift, metal working tools, and a welder (everything I don't have). Therefore I was thinking going with the kit.

On my car I had to fabricate a dual cross member out of round tubing. Then once I had it bolted down I drove thirty six miles uncapped across the city of Tampa to a Mienikie Muffler shop on the other side of the world were for $680 they fabricated a true dual 2.5" mandrel bent (no kincks) stainless steel exhaust (I supplied the Flowmasters, exhaust tips and High Performance cats I bought from Summit). That was five years ago and I haven't had a rattle or a loose gasket since then. I spent five hours there waiting as the deal was I could get all the custom work done I wanted while there were no other cash customers waiting for a fifteen minute econo pipe job.

The guy that did the work was an artist. He offered to build headers from scratch as well for my next car. Same deal, only when there wasn't a car to fix.

Here's what I would love to have. It's a custom exhaust done by Kooks for a customer. The exhaust is 3" all stainless.

Shocked They did a good job on that - very nice work - me like. I'm sure if you took that picture down to MufflerWorks there is a 17 year old that can knock that out for you on a Saturday morning Rolling Eyes . Clay

The guy that did my pipes at Meinekie was an ex-biker who learned a trade while in school (we think of them as prisons, but they are actually finishing schools were people hone their skills and refine their techniques).

I can tell you from looking at that picture, the guy(s) that did it spent a lot of time and displayed a lot of practice. I owned a Midas franchise for 16 years and besides myself only one other guy in the shop had any idea of what it takes to do a first rate custom job like that. I should also say we did not have a mandrel bender, only a regular tube bender. Things have come a long way.

That system must have cost big $$$$. It was done by KOOKS and they do MINT work.
