Alright so I'm planning on doing a muffler delete and I already got a guy who can weld the pipes together (as i recall muffler delete usually doesnt require bending any pipes) and I was wondering where can I get the chrome piping thats going to take place of the muffler? Any other things I should know about the muffler delete?

You'd be looking for stainless piping, not chrome. If you have dual piping all the way back I think you'd be looking at 5 feet of piping total (2.5'/per). I was going to go this route myself and had PM'd Solidjake about piping length because he had his setup for sale. He said "The overall length with curves/tip was 29/30 inches. The tips were like 6 inches long and the pipes probably 25 inches or so each". Good luck, post clips.

As far as not bending, I'm not so sure about that. You might want to have a look, it will depend where you cut off your stock exhaust.

First off its called tubing not piping! Pipes are pvc, abs, bras, copper... nothing to do with a cars exhaust.

Here's my exhaust from a while ago, extremely easy no bends and used stock tips so its sleeper status :4ngie:

They did it for $80. I cant tell you how good it is quality wise, just keep an eye and inspect his work before the car goes down. they have piping, just bring your own tips

Just a suggestion, when I did a muffler delete, my shop allowed me to test drive it and see how I liked it. I decided that it was too open ended above 4k RPM, not enough power up there and it sounded too raspy. I have a glasspack resonator installed in the mufflers place and its pure sex to me. :)

No exhaust mount?

Above the right tip I welded on a tab that's bolted to some hole behind the bumper but I need to redo it so it's not solid mounted

^ Maybe you should try to center it while you're at it. It wont be so "Sleeper status" when your bumper starts to melt. BTW, you keep correcting people on "Tubing" yet you are straight "piped" in your sig.; maybe you should be straight "tubed".

If I were to try and center the tips then it would be pointing to the left and would look r!cer as fvck. the only way to fix it is to replace all the tubing and rebend it so it drags out more to the driver side. The tips don't get hot enough to melt the bumper, there's not enough surface to retain heat. I have had this set up for almost a year but thank you for your concern. Yes it's called straight piped but you don't call the exhaust tubing "piping" it's incorrect and will make you look like you know nothing to more knowledgeable people. I happen to be a fabricator and work construction on the side so I have a little bit of knowledge on the differences of the two words.
