getting new magnaflow catback
im buying a new exhaust with high flow cat manflow muffler/pipes everything i need to connect from the ypipe, its all bolt ons and i dont know how long it would take and if it would be easyer and better to get it welded on or if its easy to just save the money and bolt it on yourself?

My TA came with a magnaflow catback system already installed and it is welded. I have installed three catback systems on different trucks in the past and it took long to take off the old exhaust then to install the new one. Total time about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Having said that I just install a sfc on my TA and it took alot longer than I thought because it's hard to get a jack under the car (3 ton craftsman pos!) and get it in the air. With a lift it would have take 30mins or less instead it took almost 2 hours. If you have the tools I say install it yourself than take it somewhere to have it welded. Good luck and it's the best sounding exhaust out there for an f-body.

It took me about 3 hrs. to put the catback in but most or that was adjusting the fitment and cutting the old exhaust out.2000 NBM Camaro Z28

My camaro was one of the easyer exhaust I have put on. Just jack the back of the car. Block the front wheels and get the ass end as high as you can with Jack stands. To get the old one off just cut the I pipe where the new one will slip over, then just cut it again were it goes over the axle. Done, now just unbolt I think one hanger that is on the muffler and yank it off. Now the hard part is done. Have a beer and look it the old exhaust with a buddy and say "I cant wait to get the new exhaust on so I can hear it."
Now remember you only get that one beer because after you get the new exhaust on you are going to want to take the car for a joy ride.
Good luck and enjoy.
BTW don't weld it.
