If you get the muffler in for now, I'd look for some o' them. That way you don't end up with just some crappy U Bolts, or welds you'll have to try and cut later without trashing the new muffler.

I might just get a cheap turbo muffler. Would getting a 3 inch muffler be ok being tubo mufflers dont have much flow???? I am looking at a Summit racing turbo muffler that is suppost to have gains of 21 hp at 5600 rpm. I had a dynomax turbo on my van and it didn't have much more flow than stock. I was wondering if it would be better to go with the 3 inch to get better flow or do you think I should stick with the stock 2 1/2? I still might wait and get the flowmaster in feb. I am not sure. I will be ordering my trans cooler or muffler friday. So I still have time to decide.

i hope this helps you a little.
first of all, our tubing on the exhaust is stainless alloy. it gets surface rust and thats all. now the muller is another story. get a F body[camaro] muffler and have them cut your * off and weld it on. while you are at it, get yourself a high flow cat and have them do the same .
our pipes are mandrel bent already , so why get rid of them?

The magnaflow i heard is to rough for my liking personally. The flowmasters were very smooth and mellow. If you want to compare our videos here ya go...

Bear in mine they all have stock tubing except for Gordy'* exhaust (3")
