So if you take these tips (which sound delicious btw) and take it to the muffler shop, all they would do is remove the muffler portion and just weld these on? no other piping is needed? Thank you!
No problem, the info is posted in this thread though......
You take these tips to an exhaust shop and they remove your mufflers, weld in about a 2 foot section of pipe, along with the tips. I do not supply the 2foot of pipe, the shop does. If you want to save a little money, you can remove the mufflers yourself before driving to the shop. Should save you an hour of labor. Just cut the pipe right before it "Y's" with a sawzall. Then remove the bolts that hold each pair of mufflers to the car. Cost varies from $100-500 depending on the area in the country, the shop, and the material used.
