Liking the S13 love! Looks like you're doing it properly based off your specs too. I look forward to seeing more updates!

Pshh, straight pipe it!

My friend did his VR6 GTI.. just cut the muffler out, and ran bendy pipe to the back... ghetto as **** but it works, and it was past the cats so it actually passes inspection. Loud as hell but it sounds absurd.

No thanks lmao. I had to have it welded while I save up for the 5Zigen catback that I'm going to get.

All the shops are charging me 450 to bend, weld and install and I'd have to get the front pipe replaced as well as the cat for them to do it anyway... and they don't have mandrell benders, so I can't do the pipe size I want. So, for $700 I'm getting a already bent system and replacing my whole exhaust myself. I bought the front pipes, buying the manifold, and already have the cat. Excited to finally have enough for the system.

That's so overpriced... You can pick up mandrel bent exhaust tubing from dealers on ebay for cheap.

Pffff, diesel engines.. What a pain. Or is it gas.. But would a block heater really be necessary.. But that sucks Any updates?

Just ordered a new seat, brake cable kit in white, and yellow bar tape for my bike. Painting it Matte Purple next week when those arrive.
