It'* not like they can have this done at the muffler shop. You have to preheat it.
For the cost and trouble to go farther I don't think it'* worth it.
A front mani that is ported correctly without welding is a MAJOR difference from stock size. Not to mention how much the ports vary from each other.
I'm sure it could be done cheaper, but when I looked at getting Ed Morad to send a stock front mani to W-Body store, then they weld and port/polish, then send to me, it would have run me in total about $150 or so. I passed.
I'm maybe $30 into my "fake" PEM. If I find it to be worthless, I could probably sell it over at ClubGP for 50% profit
