Default Exhaust Manifold (Question/Help)

Umm,

Maybe a mexican muffler shop?! lol........ thanks

You'll have to weld them to your catback and you may have to move the cat to the rear a little.
You may want to have the O2 sensor bung relocated to the end of the rear header because its currently in the crossover.
Thats all I really know though.

don't u all think that 270 dollars is a little excessive for putting on such easy headers? i was expecting to pay around 100 max..

Where are you located? You could hop on CGP and find someone to install them cheep. A buddy of mine got TOG headers installed, shorty DP welded to cat delete, and sway bar flipped for $110.

Or install them yourself minus the cat welding and bung install, then take it to a muffler shop just for those final bits. Shouldn't cost more than $40-50.
