Hi gang....I need to replace the exhaust pipes from the ex manif to the muflers.
They have small holes in them. I see where ya can buy them.... but i'm wondering the wisdom in trying to do it myself. especially when there's a muffler shop down the street.
Sure, i have the tools, pipe cutter, angle grinder, even a MIG welder...... but i just know "stuff" wont line up right.
thanks as usual :cheers

C'mon, TK - you've been fearless on everything else you've done. Comparatively speaking, putting on an exhaust system is a walk in the park.
Just buy a quality system, take your time, and when >you< are happy with the way it fits and looks, then it's right. If you don't like the way something lines up, then move it around until you are happy.

The main issue is getting the flare correct so it won't leak at the manifold to pipe joint. You need a pipe flaring machine to do this correctly. Get a bolt on kit, or go to the muffler shop like I did. I spent minimum $$$ and it came out fine and took a couple of hours.
