    Got both pipes all complete. Just need to weld the hangers now.
    These where a prick to measure up.
    A lot of cutting an swearing but I got there in the end.








    I seriously canít believe how much people are charging for 200 bucks of materials.
    The pipe bends where about 80 bucks all up and the tips where 60 each.
    No where near what people are literally paying for something like this



    And if its for a Porsche Macan ya paying almost double.

    How much time have you spent? @ $100 or more per hour, plus the have to make a profit on each one (I'm assuming 100%)...

    Being that this is my first time doing this it was mostly a learning lesson for me. If I was to sell these Id probably just sell em for 400 bucks not $2000 lol
    The welding it self takes like a few minutes.
    The time is more in the measuring and cutting

    They are stainless steel but unsure what grade.

    Nice one. Does a different length to the muffler make any difference ( not sure if yours are or not)...

    I only just followed the path from the factory lay out.
    I will eventually make a full system with a Magnaflow 11385 resonator.
    Those things sound amazing with this engine
