Default Exhaust Shop

I am starting to look for exhaust shops to bend me a 3" catback. Do any of you guys know of a shop that will do this for a reasonable price? Also, if any of you have a pipe bender and can do this job yourself please let me know your price.
Thanks

I was afraid of that but there isn't any major bends that need to be made so I should be fine without a mandrel bender.

mickey's muffler off rose wood great old boys there for a fair price or nick at under ground or richard at hales but for them they might be buying the bend and just doing the fitting wich is just fine the performance gain if any is kinda mute with the mandrel esp when the choke point is further up stream a nice 2.5 with a mangnaflow muffler i was a fan off because ya don't have the pressure drop like ya do with a 3" or bigger on a smaller turbo i.e. 20g<and below and boost creep problems oh hell i'm sick and can't type you'll figure it out google is awesome lol like i tell every one understand why you want the exhaust then figure out what will most be affective and efficient

Know anyone who can tig? Get a couple of these bends from vibrant through underground and it's stupid simple to make your own setup. Or just snag a catback off a wrx and tweak it a bit to fit.

The NAPA warehouse also has a large selection of mandrel bends. I did the LGT straight using a stick of 3" and two 45* mandrels.

What is the deepest sounding exhaust I can get on my legacy? I have listen to a bunch of you tube videos and most of them seem to have a real bad drone to them. I want to get an up pipe and a turbo back exhaust.

I think he meant that if I knew one it would be easy to make, not that he needed one. Get some sleep pops.
P.S. Thank you for helping me today!

Allows movement for less stress on the parts... But once heat breaks up the flex joint It becomes worthless.

One of those things where you go left( flex joint uppipe) or you go right(full one piece up pipe).

2in inlet into the turbo is why most up pipe are 2in id.

I actually think stock turbo inlet coming from up pipe into the turbo is 1.7id? Somebody correct me.

So unless I change my turbo 3" up pie is pointless or is there still some kind of benifit.
