Universal Exhaust Fab Kit

Postby dhenderz » Wed Sep 08, 2010 7:09 pm

Wondering if anyone has found a good universal exhaust fab kit for welding up your own custom exhaust. The only thing I've found are the ones at Jeggs (don't appear to have enough universal bends to work on our cars) or full dual exhaust kits (double what should be necessary + double the $$). Ideally 2.5inch & mandrel bent.

Yeah, your pretty much stuck with getting Summing or Jeggs J-bends and U-Bends and having to cut them up to fit, or of course going to a shop and having someone bend one up for you like I did. I would have much rather made my own, but at the time I did not have access to a welder or a lift to do it properly.

Yup, I went the shop route for my first car and will never go back. Did the Camaro & truck with Summit u-bends, and doing the Beretta this weekend. I'll post pics.

It was 2.5 press-bent done by a local shop that necked down to 2.25 over the axle "because 2.5 wouldn't fit." Basically, they were lazy. My Borla bullet wasn't offset like the Dynomax VT either, so placement was different. I kept the muffler close to the axle to hide it, and to improve the sound. Piping after the muffler smooths it out a little. I also put in a flange just before the axle to make removal easy if I need to. I bent & cut a couple clamps to make hooks for the stock 91 rubber hangers at the back seat area too. Ground clearance is a little better than it was too.

That looks real nice and really doesn't look like it was very hard for you to do.

Hey Woody... how much would you charge to make me some pipes? Those are very purdy. Especially like the stock looking tips

Sorry Z26, I don't really have the time to be fabbing exhausts for others. Contact Dustin about his stainless pipes.

Under $200 if you dont count the muffler & tip. If you have good eyes you should be able to read the PNs on the stickers in the pic.
