Op, how much did you end up spending on the exhaust?

Mortar has a nice custom built system in the FS section; most of it 3" with dual mufflers for stealth. I believe he is on your coast as well..... his removed from a 760T I think.

I just spent $400 for the components to build 3" exhaust systems for both my 740's. 2 Cherry Bomb Salute mufflers (magnaflow copy), 2 generic resonators, a 3" cat for my turbo wagon, and a speedway motors 3" exhaust pipe kit. Seriously the exhaust pipe kit was a screaming deal, I don't know how they can sell it that cheap. $170 shipped. If you bought everything it comes with individually, it would run you double that. It's nothing fancy, mild steel tubing, but it should weld nice.

Saw that. I've decided that I am just going to weld my own exhaust together. Figured knowing how to make one myself is better.

Hey kid, “if someone made you an offer, please respond.”

I have things to do and if you’re backing out it would be nice to know.

Hahaha what? You sent me a PM saying you'll get back to me if you're free so I've been waiting for your answer as to whether or not you'll be available.

I responded to this thread because you said you were going to do the job yourself.

My answer is no. I have zero time for teenage drama.

Build it your self! Welding skills are key to being a hands on car owner. Your first exhaust will be ugly and the welds embarrassing but in the end rewarding.
Buy a cheap welder and just go for it,

That's what I'm gunna do. You were the one who really got me into doing the work myself because you brought up some good points at the time. Im in the process of buying the parts I need for it so I'm pumped!

Keep us posted! JEGS or others have decent pipe kits to work from.
