Anyone reccomend a muffler shop in the Springs?

I need new exhaust from the manifolds back to clear the new oil pan. Any recommendations?

How much would be fair for 3" straight pipe from the manifolds dumped in front of the rear tire or out the back?

From stock manifolds? It will have to neck down to around 2 in to fit a stock flange.
Anyone make shorty or tri-Y headers for that model?

They make some great ones. Doug Thornleys makes a highly regarded set, for $500. But I am a young and involved in a missions organization and can't afford a nice set up. The only reason I'm replacing it because I had to replace my motor and y-pipe wont clear the new oil pan. I need something that will get me back to Texas without getting carbon monoxide poisoning.

Hang on to your existing exhaust; you can use the flanges and stubs to build off.
If you don't get anything worked out in a couple weeks I may have some spare time and we can fab something.
I just buy u-bends and a couple straight sections and build from there.

I appreciate it. But I'm trying to get this squared away so I can head back to Texas in two weeks for fund raising and helping my parents move. I'll be keeping the hardware but local shops quoted around $400 to fab it up and that's almost my monthly income literally. I might have to give the DIY route a shot.
