I have a used set here if you need cores and want to get some made and not have any downtime other than the swap.

Havent driven it in 2 weeks. First, I am trying to figure out my exhaust for emissions, but I am in no hurry. The aftermarket exhaust has 2 inlets (1 from each cat) and 1 outlet from the muffler. OEM D90 i belive had 1 and 1. So, I have been researching what brand muffler it is, so that I dont have to also replace from cats/y-pipe back to end of car (and save some dolla dolla bills). I think its a Gibson muffler. But, their site doesnt have LR parts, so I have to call them to confirm. The dimensions of mine make be believe its a Gibson. Ohh...and its alllllll welded together which complicates things.

Charles, Ill let you know what direction I am going. Even if your way costs 115, I still have to spend 65 on the mocal sandwich plate. So, for a few more dollars I can get all parts from trailhead/lucky 8, right?

No my way doesn't involve any extra parts or sandwich plates. That's the point. Take the stock ends and replace the rest with a setup that is easy and cheap to do if ever needed again.

What's the problem with your exhaust? Sounds like your y-pipe/cats have been modified if you have two pipes going into the muffler have any pictures?
