i have been thinkin about exhaust for a while now, and i have been contemplating what i should do. Ppl here seem to like Magnaflows. I have an idea, ill buy some magnaflow mufflers off of jegs.com or somethin an take it to a muffler shop an have them install a custom catback, but i have some ?s. First off, i was thinkin as a b-day present (which is in June)from my parents is to get the exhaust done, but it might be askin for too much. SInce i live in the smog nazi state in cali, im keepin the 3rd cat, no ifs ands or buts about it, im keeping it. Now ive read 2.25 is the way to go from the 3rd cat back to the mufflers. Since i have a 97v8 theres no resonator. Should i replace the downtubes from the 2 primary cats, to the 3rd cat? If so what size should i tell the shop to use? and how much more for using mandrel bends on the downtubes instead of compression bends? Tell me waht u guys think, about this setup will it have problems with emissions?
