    Last night I went to pick up my gf out at her place and we heard this rattling/baning noise. I stop and find out my tailpipe is loose....great.. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif So i'm like w/e and drive home. This morning I check it out and its not that the tail pipe is loose but the pipe in front of the muffler split and was allowing the whole exhaust to rotate down.... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif So I had a mental breakdown and friday its going in to get a new exhaust put in, professionally. The reason I'm so mad is now I won't be able to afford 35's!!! What do I do now?

    Can you just maybe take it by the local exhaust shop and have them kinda just tack weld or somethin along those lines until the funds can become available? I've often been amazed at what those folks can do with a little heat.

    Good luck to y'all in the future.

    Shite happens...sometimes you just have to suck it up and wait for the savings to build a little again.

    Thats the whole problem, I've been "riggin it up" since I got and it rattles and shakes and [darn] all the time so I finally broke down and I'm going for the good stuff. So the question is:
    Do I go with 2.25" or 2.5"? (its a 305 but that may change someday...)

    Rotate it back up, weld the split in the pipe and weld the muffler TO the pipe so that it can't rotate any longer. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Spend the money that ya just saved on a set of 35's for you and a six-pack for me. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    You see the problem is this: the peice that split was that cheesy flex pipe crap... I know I know but I had to make a bend and I don't have a bender. I also know that the flexpipe will break everytime because its just shitty stuff so I'm going to do it the real way this time.
