Yeah, thanks, w0rm. I kind of thought that I would have to go the custom fabrication route before posting this WTB. But I thought I might as well throw it out there and see whether I was gonna get lucky...Looks like it ain't gonna happen.
Dunno...I'll see how much it's gonna cost to get a custom-made connecting pipe. If it ends up costing almost as much as getting the whole thing brand new, I may as well buy a brand new exhaust system. I'd hate to see a good muffler unit going to waste. This bodyshop I know offered to sell it to me for $150.
