3" stainless downpipe built today, rest to come tomorro

To all of those nay-sayers out there who claim you can't build your own for less money than some of the tuners are selling theirs for - here is picture evidence.







This is 304 mandrel bent 3" stainless tubing, fully TIG welded. The flange, the cat, and the O2 sensor bungs are also stainless.

Cost? Let me just say that all of my materials including the shipping costs did not surpass $200.

Following the downpipe is a nice big flex-pipe, then a resonator, and then 3" pipe leading to a 2.5" reducer located right where the back end of the stock resonator would be (right before that elbow).
Should have some more pictures up tomorrow.
