Well, thats a fairish point.  But I personally think anyone that is gonna
take a 3" down pipe and attach it to a  pair of stock  mufflers and
tailpipes is missing the boat.  
Those pipes are intended for people that are going to do a custom exhaust.
the downpipe is the hardest part to get a local shop to do and do rite.
The cat back part is a no brainer.
Anyways, so what.  I wasn't talkin bad of the Classic Corral pipe.  I know
those are mandrel bent.  I was jus brining up another source.
