hah so i got a call from my mechanic guy and he said he took it to them and they wanted like 2k for the whole install header back... he laughed, as well as I. so we just picked up a cat set, and I'm going to make the rest. I can never understand where some exhaust guys get there quotes. I remember i went to one place and he wanted 400$ to put a muffler i already had on, with a dump by the rear axle... recockulous

we have to eat and pay bills just like you do.

mechanics dont harass (sp) you about what you make at your job now do we?

yeah i understand.. but when its 3 feet of pipe and a 40 series i have already purchased..and they wanna charge me 350-400$ for just a dump by rear axle. is that not rediculous? if i was doing headers back with alot of bends i would understand fully the high prices. which is usually why most of us do it ourselves

yeah exhaust is on its just headers to cats,and its under the cab. i still need to go get some 2.5" pipe and finish it however i want.. still not sure on how i want it to exit

yeah we were gonna try and use my old ones..but that wasnt workn. so yeah i had to get the header to cat system, and thats all i have on right now. In the future i might just make an x pipet ype thing and rid the cats(or do one performance cat). but i guess i'll have the cat system to throw on if need be later.

Alrighty im back and finally have some stuff for you guys. I built a new computer and finally got it up and the work schedule is toned down a bit more so i can spend a little more time relaxing and screwing around rather than just work and sleep. I have just a teaser vid for now of the truck without exhaust. its sounds like crap but i'll be sure and get another one up this week when i get the exhaust done.
