Re: SVO: Possible Clogged Exhaust?
I appreciate you responding so quickly! Thanks! Do you know where I
can get a 3" downpipe for cheap? I've seen them for about $130 bucks,
but isn't it just a piece of bent 3" pipe? Can a muffler shop make one
for cheap? I had the dual exhuast for my 65 Stang done for less than
$130--and its completely custom. Help?!
Thanks again for your words of wisdom
ps. How do you like the Contour SVT?!
