    I'm going to add a y pipe to my 97 Formula- anyone have a recommendation for a source that won't be too expensive, but a decent product?

    What headers are on the car.
     
  3. I would suggest buying the y-pipe portion it self and haveing a muffler shop bend/weld something up for you. ITs liable to fit alot better than than a mass produced y-pipe

    Edelbrock.

    Good point- I'll have to see if anyone around my area is willing to fab something up. I was reminded of this from a thread about a true dual setup over the axle- that would be my first choice- all custom.

    most y-pipe people buy mail order fit like crap, and bang the subframe when you get on it.

    Damn Edlebrock 1 5/8ths...

    Stubby plug socket with box wrench end is your friend with those headers.
