I'd check some local exhaust shops it I was you. Its really easy to do. Its just $$$$

I had the option to run another tip to make it look like dual exhuast but decided against it. However the full 2 muffler route is dead easy. See what some local shops say

So what ever happened to this idea ?

I am still interested in this project if anyone wants to get the ball rolling.

Does anyone know of any good exhaust shops in the Chicagoland area that would do this type of job ?

Ty,

have you heard anything from your shops in Chicago about this project or would you recommend any shops in Chicago to have them custom make my 2001 SE to a dual exhaust ?

IT WAS A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO NOW BUT I DID IN FACT CREATE A DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM FOR MY 94 SE. SINCE I DID IT IN MY GARAGE WITH A 115V MIG WELDER AND PRETTY MUCH LEARNED TO WELD WHILE DOING IT IT DOESN'T LOOK THE BEST BUT IT DOES FUNCTION. IT SEEMS TO BE TRUE THAT YOU DO LOSE SOME LOW END TORQUE BUT WITH THE BETTER FLOWING INTAKE AND EXHAUST TOGETHER I DO FEEL SOME TOP END. I WENT WITH 2 2.25 INCH PIPES 2 CATS AND 2 DYNOMAX MUFFLERS. FROM THE CATS BACK IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD BUT IT CUTS DOWN YOUR GROUND CLEARENCE SINCE THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR WAS NOT MEANT FOR IT. AS FOR GOING OVER THE FRONT SUSPENSION, TRANS LINES, AND OTHER MISC OBSTRUCTIONS I DID IT WITH FLEX PIPE AND IT HAS A LEAK THAT IS HARD TO GET TO I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU TRY TO GET A SHOP TO BEND THAT PART I DON'T KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE IT IS THOUGH. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED I COULD TAKE SOME PICTURES AND EXPLAIN HOW I DID IT JUST A REMINDER IT DOES LOOK A LITTLE GHETTO THOUGH BUT THE BASIC IDEA I BELIEVE WILL WORK IF A PROFESSIONAL DOES IT.

This sounds like something that can be done easily. I think I'm gonna look around at some shops and see what they can do for me. Would anyone know a good price for this work would be ? I have no idea and I don't want to pay too much.

Could I get the new SLE Dual setup on my 93? My mom has a 98 SLE, and it sounds awesome.
