Re: Custom SS exhaust, 83 CGT

Yeah, I'll take some pics, no problem.

Yep, all mandrel bends.  All stainless, except I think the hangars they used 
might have been regular carbon steel.  Mostly welded together, with flanges 
at the 4kq downpipe, both sides of the cat, and a muffler clamp just before 
the muffler.

Price breakdown:

Borla Turbo Muffler, 304 SS:  $99 + S&H (I think, from carfarts.com)
Cat $99 - from muffler shop.  It must be special, he called it a cadillactic 
14 guage 304SS pipe + installation (around 3 hours).  $185.  All lumped 
together, so not sure of the breakdown.
Cheezy chromed twin outlet exhaust pipe $12 from Prep-boys.  The smallest 
tip the exhaust shop had could have shot a grapefruit.  The largest a 
medicine ball.  So I figured the twin 2-1/2" pipes next to each other looked 
better than the other options.
