exhaust pipe

where can I go to buy exhaust pipe? I want to buy just a straight pipe that will connect to the cat, so It would need the flare on the end, and then the other side I would clamp to the muffler. Right now the muffler is dumped, and I want to have it exit out the side right in front of the right rear tire, but if I just buy a turn pipe, like a half U pipe, it will exit right into the tire, the way the muffler is posistioned. I would just cut back the pipe and mount the muffler back further, but it bends down few inches before the muffler. Here is a picture to describe my situation.

It should be under 100 to have that done at a shop, welded and all.

Ya the place in my town told me about $100 for it, but I think I could do it myself if I could just pick up the pipe somewhere, no one knows a place that sells exhaust pipe? could I just buy any old pipe from home depot?
And has anyone else done this?

You'll have to get it at a muffler shop if you want one end to be expanded. Home depot doesn't sell exhaust pipe

Im thinking if I am going to pay to have a shop do it, I might throw some extra money in and have them do duals out each side. Still exit out in front of the rear tires, but on each side. If I go this route, I have a single out flowmaster. Should I have them come out of the single outlet and split off into two, or would it make a big difference in soun If i bought the dual outlet muffler? Is it worth to buy another muffler or would it still sound the same?
