Straight pipe help!!!!

I am wanting to straight pipe my stock exhaust. I unfortunately do not have a buddy or uncle with muffler shop.Are most of them uilling to perform this surgeryI have the skills to do it myself I have not had muck luck finding 3.5"" pipe and parts locally.If I gut the cat and add high flow muffler will that be almost as good I have been looking at FBD 4" but just orderd chip and guages from Stealth and could stand to save some cash.

I've heard most muffler shops will do it for around $50. But you should be able to buy some pipe from a muffler shop somewhere... do you have one kinda close to you?

Yup, check around at your local muffler shops. I can't recall exactly what mine ran me, I am pretty sure it was under 100.00 for pipe and welding.

A high flow muffler definitely isn't the same as a straightpipe I had a high flow muffler on mine and there was a HUGE difference after I removed it and straightpiped the exhaust. And like all the other guys said you should have no problem getting pipe from a muffler shop and even having them do it for cheap

I bought a full turbo-back and it was the best decision ever. I was going to make my own, but decided to spend the money and the fitment, the look, the sound, everything turned out great. thats my .02 buy a system

i did a 3.5 down to a 4.5 the rest of the way no cats or muffler. it is a bit loud but the power is there when i need it. the truck never knows what it is like to just pull its own weight it always has a load. now it is has the power to pull.

I had mine straight piped (no cat either) and had a stainless tip that i bought put on for about $100.00; $160 including tip, but I just put on a turbo back 4" system and I like it much better.
