yup i do the installs all the time.
nice street system installed 4-6k
adds 25-75 hp
costs 5-15 mpg

shop around if your thinking about doing this
dont run a off brand turbo.
when rebuild time comes in 80k miles thos off brands cost so much more to referb

shop ebay for ideas and price ranges
go to the store grab a mag or 2 read up on what people have done.

the more you know the less it will cost you in the long run.

go to a shop with a real welder.



1/8 inch steel is easy to weld

you pipe is less than 1/16 steel.



its almost as thich as standard exhaust pipe.

so ya minght try a exhaust shop and see what they can come up with for moving or shortning that pipe.



i welded 1/4 inch plate steel to my pipe. causing the whole car
to feel the hit instead of just the pipe. (not sure it was
my best idea)



but the pipe still flows
