www.3800performance.com I believe sells them.
Otherwise keep your eyes GLUED to the parts for sale section over at www.clubgp.com as people over there hover over that section like a pack of hungry wolves watching for a calve to leave the herd.

Mine was custom built by a guy doing a big group buy last summer. I don't know if he still does it. I actually forgot who it was.

You can buy an R/T DP from 3800performance, but it costs a bit more. CGP might have members doing custom pipes, or just check with an exhaust shop to do something custom.

Custom is probably cheaper, and then it'* fit to your car.

Just a thought.

true, but only problem is no one in town has a mandrel bender and I want at least the DP to be mandrel bent...both my cat backs are not mandrel bent...which sucks...but the exhaust guy at least put as few and gradual bends as possible...also what I dont like about the RT DP is no flex pipe

I think that is an old pic. It should have a flex pipe. But I haven't heard anything great about the quality of the flex pipes on the R/T. And I also heard the CAT isn't that great either. I don't know though, I've never seen one.

go to a local muffler shop. If they dont have a mandrel bender then chances are they know somebody who will.

I've heard that people have problems with their flex pipe with the RT dp/cat. My dad had one for a while, and sold it when he got his headers and then bought the one that is supposed to be welded up to the headers (he sold his other one for more than the new one cost). But while he had it there was no problems with the flex pipe. It has been improved a few times too. The cat is fine, it flows well and we never had any problems with it. Right now it has been removed, we are running straight pipe instead, but thats because the race gas we use is "low lead" so it clogs up the cat, so we figured we might as well just take it out to save us later problems. But its still in very good shape and the thing is small. Its sitting on the bench if you want me to take pics of the inside I will try to find the digital camera and take some. I've never seen an M&* unit, so I can't tell you how good they are, but I can definately tell you that the RT is worth the money IMO. And the cat is TINY!
