Trust me on this one when I say, it sucks....i have been cutting and welding and bending my own pipes all damn day today, using a MIG welder and a sawzall.....it did save me around 250 bucks though. :)

I switched out my OBX single exhaust that came out on the drivers side for a single magnaflow that comes out on the passenger side. hopefully this will sound ten times better. I still have 1 hanger left to weld up, and then I will post up pics for all to see ;)

Did you do this at your house? I read up about people making homemade full exhaust. I wouldn't be able to use one of those MAP Gas portable torches would I?

120? Thats it? All I have to do then is get the measurements for cuts and stuff and I'll be good.

Yeah, it's not too bad with the right tools. The main thing is the satisfaction you get by building your own stuff. By the way, do you have any pictures, phlash?

maybe even a sound clip or two...who knows...im feeling fiesty tonight...and yes, the satisfaction of doing it yourself is priceless......I could have went and bought it and installed it(a cat back exhaust) I used to say "everything done to the car mod wise, ive done myself, except the exhaust" now I can say. EVERYTHING done to my car I have done myself.
