have you seen the absurd price on OVAL exhaust pipe?

they take 3" exhaust pipe squish it to measure about 3.45 x 2.25 and double the price,
$167 for a single 5 ft section of strait exhaust pipe
$90 for a single 90 degree sweep
$53 to go from a oval to normal 3" pipe
you could easily have $1000-$1500 in just materials even before,
you bought mufflers just to gain 3/4" road clearance

you get less effective cross sectional area, but a bit more (maybe 3/4" max)clearance under the car,
your forced to use very expensive oval pipe sections to change directions,
and other adapters to go back to normal 3" exhaust and mufflers

I bid a house Heating A/c Ductwork new house basically around a year ago and the guy was waiting for his brickwork and a couple more things so he called me a couple weeks ago and wanted to start so I told him that I was going to rebid it because its been so long since I priced it out and the price increased by $10,000.00 from my original bid
