Aluminum exhaust

Well, I got tired of the drone of my Buschur straight pipe exhaust, so I decided to build an aluminum cat back. I ordered a bunch of mandrel bends from racepartsolutions.com and got a Vibrant aluminum muffler and went to town!! This is what I came up with after a few hours of cutting/fitting/welding/fitting/cussing. Firing the car up tomorrow after getting the last few parts in, hopefully it's quieter than the Buschur....

Very good looking work man, welds looks great. I really need to get a welder so I can build my own parts. Did you have a muffler delete on the buschur setup?

Yeah, it was straight pipe when I bought the car. The Buschur kit is pretty beat up, I'm debating just scrapping it, or fixing it up and selling it.

I finished the car up last night and fired it up. Sounds pretty aggressive but is way quieter than the Buschur exhaust.

Update, put plenty of miles on it and no issues at all. Only thing I may change is using 4" pipe off of the muffler to fill the bumper cut out better. I may make a few of these to sell now that I have the jig.
