    So is it better/cheaper to buy your own mufflers and have a muffler shop fab a custom x pipe system, or try to mix and match different parts from different brands?

    I would not do that, because once you get headers your going to have to run completly new exhaust, because the bends are going to be different and you will not benefit from true duals and stock exhaust manifolds, i would save up all the money and do everything at once man. save you time and money in the shop.

    thats really not recommended b/c

    1) fitment will be way different at the headers then the manifolds and you'll spend more $ to get that fixed
    2) it sounds wierd IMO

    So now that im lowered, is a 3 inch TD system gonna be excessive off of pacesetter headers? Don't exactly feel like scraping.

    should not have problems unless the shop does a crapy job, they need to be tucked up under the car though.

    Mine scrape on my lowered TA with 3 in TD's. If the exhaust is raised anymore than it already is I'll be burning a fuel line...

    simple, you had a shitty instal, my car is lowered, almost slammed, and it does not scrape. or rub, or burn a fuel line. its the installer like i mentioned before in this thread.

    Yes I saw your post. What company made your TD's? Mine are TSP. Coming off of the x-pipe on the driver's side the pipe dips down(how it comes from the factory). The ppl who did my exhaust, also put on my h/c/i rear end, etc. Also running on a 16inch rim. So, not a shitty install, just how it fits on my application.

    that looks like a good install, yea it does have to dip down like that from factory cause of the fuel lines, but it does not need to honestly it should not burn the fuel lines up, mine is straight and no dip and I have not had any issues.

    I installed my true duals this time around, and the rear end along with all the suspension parts.

    Idk what to do about the scraping, that pic was taken at a muffler shop yesterday. Said he couldn't do anything for me, it would be too close to the body and might vibrate off and then there's the whole fuel and brake lines cluster right above it.
