Unhappy Exhaust angle and degrees of bend? Help!

I'm trying to get a custom 3" catback made for my 2002 wrx and the exhaust shop I went to will bend the pipe and cut it to spec for 50$ if I know where to bend it, what the angles are and the degree of the bends. If I don't know all that it will cost me another 50$ for him to get under the car and do all the measurements himself.

I have the stock catback now with a magnaflow muffler on it I just wanna bump up that stock piping to a 3" so I assume it will be bent the same and all the angles and bends will be the same as stock.

So my question is can anyone please help me on how long this pipe should be, the angle of the bends and degrees and where exactly it should be bent?

If you don't know but you can point me in the right direction to where I can find this information I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Devon.

Sorry cant really help you with the info you need. However would you be able to tell me the name and location of the shop. I would like a 3inch axle back made since my exhaust tapers to 2.5. The shops around here are charging like $100. Yours seems like a good price.

Yeah no problem! Yeah the price is really fair I figured if I could find the dimensions and just tell him I'd save 50$ because I'm doing the rest myself I just don't have the tools or knowledge to bend that big of pipe without a machine.
He was only gonna charge 50$ for a 7' 6" stainless steel 3" pipe which sounds like a great deal to me.
Anyway the shop is Deer Park Muffler, it's off center street in Deer Park

Thanks. I do have a full 3inch turbo back exhaust sitting in my garage. I could take pictures of it for you or you can come down and take measurements or whatever if you like.

edit: just realized that deer park is like 45miles away from me lol. I can still send you pics if youd like. Dont think it would be worth it for you to drive all the way down here and back lol
