This is an exhaust i built to replicate a factory one on a VG pacer



This is the exhaust I built for my skyline.



A fabricator can make exactly what you want.

An exhaust shop will charge you "X" amount, a fabricator will give you exactly what you want for the same "X" cost.

A good exhaust shop should be able to fabricate a system...

They can weld tube together, dont expext them to hand build mufflers. Like modern day panel beaters, unbolt/bolt on seems the attitude these days. Being a boiley, im not inclined for exhuast shops.

Definitely depends where you shop.

There are quite a few shops in town that specialise in custom systems, agree though you dont want a mum and dad muffler shop that only does press bent systems from catalogues.

You could land this for under $1000. If I could I would snap it up.

Again not exactly what I was looking for but still thank you for showing me the link. I know this might sound stupid but i'm budget $500 for this exhaust system $800 maxx and I dunno if I can find anything in that price range yet as I havent enquired with anyone.

Unfortunately for me I am currently doing long overdue services on the whole mechanical side of the car, i have already done a oil and filter change, dropped the transmission fluid twice and changed the trans filter once. I need to change my diff fluid and flush and refill my coolant system as its acidic atm. So much I need to do and not alot of money to play with.
