Default New Exhaust

Next week (probably Friday) I'm taking the Monte down to a local muffler shop to have my resonator repaired (has some leaks). Then I'm having them y pipe it and install dual Magnaflows with 3" tips. All the piping (starting after the res) will be stainless steel (as will the mufflers). He told me I could do aluminized steel to save money but I'll have to come back in a few years to swap out the pipes since they'll rust out.

So about 600 total for the piping, the hangers, the mufflers, tips, and installation.

Let us know what you think of the Magnaflows once you've got them on (just put a pair on my car this week) and post a video of your new exhaust if you can (maybe on YouTube?).

Can do - I have one up of my stock system already up (before my resonator got fixed the first time). ‪2000 Monte Carlo LS - Stock Exhuast‬‏ - YouTube Didn't really punch it though.

I've gone to a place about 1.5 hours from home. They do all custom stainless steel. My Camaro (which has not ran in years) and my current Grand Am have their exhaust systems. I never took my Monte there as it's a heck of a lot of time invested for JUST a resenator (but if I ever need/want to change the exhaust, they are first on my call list).
They no longer have a web site, so I made a page off my site just sharing my experience:

BTW - Just ditch the resenator and have a piece of stainless put in it's place (I did)
