Straight Piping

I've been reading up on people straight piping their stock exhaust. This is a mod on the to do list until it's necessary for me to get a 4" setup. I don't have a welder or have found any place locally to get 3.5" pipe so I've called a few local shops around to do it for me. Every place I've called has quoted me between 75 and 150 bucks. I nearly **** my pants. I know it shouldn't be more than 30 or so. My question is do any of you know where I can get this done for cheaper around Portland or at the very least where I can score some 3.5" pipe and clamps to do it myself?

Yeah, dont take it to a shop like that. Cut our with a sawsall the stock muffler and cat, then like the other guy said, tell a shop you need a 3.5" pipe flared at the ends that is so many inches long. Buy some exhuast clamps from Napa, ect, and put it in there.

I did a whole exhuast for $180, charging $100 to delete a muffler is crazy.

If I were to do mine like that, for short term use, I'd buy 2 band-clamps and a length of flex-pipe... but that's just me being cheap.

Bringing this back from the dead. Looking up underneath and planning everything out before I start hacking the muffler out. The s-pipe that everyone says needs to be turned 180 degrees so that it is straight doesn't look like it will end up making it straight. I know hundreds of people have done it, I just want to be sure before I start hacking it up and then needing to go to the shop and get it bent to fit.

I bought a 3 1/2" MBRP downpipe and muffler delete pipe from Exereme Diesel, a site sponsor. I have a buddy that does exhaust and he put the muffler delete on for $20 and chvyrkr81 and I put the downpipe on. I love the way it sounds! crew991 also gave me a 6" MBRP angle cut tip for it.

I finally did mine! $10 for a piece of pipe and $8 for two good clamps. Half an hour latter and its done! But i need to build a hanger since the old one is welded to the muffler.

just hack it off in front of the muffler and take all of it out behind. Let it dump under the truck until it is in the budget to do something different.
