$350 Cdn sounds about $100 too much.

Get a 3" downpipe with a 3" inlet and outlet for the catalytic convertor with a reducer behind the cat to 2.5".

Where did you get the quote?

Cheers,

I get it from "Advance" at Boucherville.

Do you know a good place?

I actually have a place working on fabricating a DP for my car. I should know something by the end of the week on price, etc.

For my DP, I spec'ed them to fab a 3" mandrel bent pipe between the rear manifold to the stock flange on the cat inlet.

I'll post when I find out more details.
