Did they take of the hair looking stuff that is wrapped around the pipe and replace that with straight pipe too?

Is it so loud now that all the cops are going to be on your ass?

I found a top notch shop in the DFW area of Texas who has worked on my cars before and can do the mod. If anyone is interested please PM me and maybe I can get us a group rate. I would like to get this done within the next two weeks. Thanks
bigtex is online now

I used a hand grinder with a metal cutting blade. worked great and cuts it in no time.

FYI, OP said $200. I think I paid $275 for mine in Belmont, but he didn't cut the bottom of the muffler can, just the top, so it's not visible by looking under (not sure how OP's is modified).



I may be selling mine in case you want to keep your stock one intact.
