Well i got the exhaust done. I went to a few different shops and most quoted me between $1000 - $1500 for a custom header back exhaust and said that a 3in tailpipe wound not fit.
The last shop i went to said $500 plus tax including the muffler and they would fit a 3in pipe.
So here she is 2.5in pipes off the collectors and 3 in pipes from the y-pipe back.
I also had them add a clamp in the middle so i can remove just the Y-pipe if i need to drop the transmission.
I snapped these while they were finishing it up so the final welds are not done yet.

Also dont judge my dirty junk yard transmission next to the shiny stuff. It was only $500 and so far is working great.

Here is some better images of the swap. If you dont notice the larger exhaust pipe and trans cooler in the grill, you would never know this has a V8 in it.

Looks good. The shop did a nice job on the exhaust, i'd say you got a good deal. Some of the welds don't look pretty but they seem solid.
