    A few pictures of mine that was done a few months ago. I think it is a Magnaflow 12198 (I'm pretty sure the shop told me, but didn't really care too much which it was and don't feel like finding the receipt. I just went with what they said would sound deep and not ricey. Plus the price seemed fairly reasonable.).

    With Relentless t-case skid (had to grind down the left side since it is a custom exhaust):

    Nice I like both those set ups. The price is much better than piecing it together. Does it make a dig difference which shop you choose? I only know of one in my area.

    I think it depends on your wants or needs. Stainless vs aluminized, crush/pressure bent vs mandrel bent, what mufflers are available, etc. I personally wouldn't be able to tell you the difference between them other than info you can find off teh interwebs.

    I was describing the type of highway conditions that I drive on usually, such as steep highways that you would encounter on the way to a ski resort, and that there is no annoying drone on the way there. I was trying to be as descriptive as possible for people interested in drone. As far as describing the shop, I was giving credibility to the design of the system for those who are truly interested in doing a re route soon and are looking for ideas.

    I would have some sort of disrespectful retort specifically towards you, but I don't see the point in trying to demean you. I don't even know you. I'm sure your exhaust is sweet too. Have a nice day. :)

    I c. I am liking the idea of going to a custom shop more and more. Not sure if upgrading the exhaust is worth it now when I can be saving up for other mods. Does anybody notice any power gains? What if coupled with a CAI?

    Dang, mine sits a little lower than where yours does, do you think I will have a problem fitting a skid on there?

    Thread revival...

    Y-pipe replacement VS Y-pipe modifying... I need some input. My exhaust is pretty rusty. I mean it doesn't leak or anything, but it doesn't look like any of the bolts will undo without a fight. My driver side CAT heat shield band actually snapped today lol. I don't really care about performance or sound factors, I just want the clearance obviously without breaking the bank. Seems like you state side guys have pretty good shop rates down there compared to here in Canada. A DT y-pipe would cost me $450 CAD if I went that route.

    Can you have a custom one made? I just had the local muffler shop bend up a high clearance Y pipe for me. crossover is behind the T case now. it's been a while now, so i dont remember the exact cost, but maybe 200-300 bucks.

    Y-pipe modifying. Just done one in my FJ, actually it's still a little under construction. Tried to do it as equal length, all stainless steel:

    I have a skid plate below the Y-pipe, so the location below the transfer is not a problem, there is space enough.

    Looks great @greeneggsnspam !

    After reading about a bunch of horrible exhaust shop experiences locally, I think I've finally come across the right place. I'll show them your pictures and see what they think.

    SOme of these systems look nicely put together. THe big Fail i see though is that there arent any flanges or slip fit sections. When i use to have an exhaust shop I use to put sections in it that way you could take the system off incase you had to remove it to work on something else etc. Only on the caprice with spinners i wouldnt bother because they would want to pay for a good job.
