Default Diy

Has anyone here did the DIY with the clamps as BlackRamHemi's friend did?
How is it holding up? Where did you source the parts?
I could not find anything locally, and the only place online is http://www.finditparts.com and it comes to


DONALDSON X007829
SEAL CLAMP $9.78
$39.12

DONALDSON X007830

SEAL CLAMP $10.36
$10.36

DONALDSON P206279

45 DEG ELBOW 2.5 OD-ID,ALUM $23.45
$23.45

DONALDSON P206339

2.5" 90 DEG ELBOW, ALUMINIZED $28.55
$28.55

Subtotal:$101.48

Seems like some people were able to find a shop to get the Y-pipe welded in for $150. Can anyone recommend any shops around Philly area?
So far I am leaning towards doing it myself with the clams, was just wondering how they would hold up in the long run. Also what do you guys use to cut the pipe, i was just going to use a sawzall, but if there is better way...please let me know.

Thank you very much.

I would rather get it welded it too but the shops around here want way too much money ($250 and above)
I wish i had a welder...but i don't
I will check out a few more shops and if i can't find a reasonable price and people that seem to know what they are doing, i'll just have to order two elbows and the clamps and do it myself. (already ordered the y-pipe)

Anyone from around Philly area had it done and could recommend a shop that knows what they're doing? I am willing to go within 50 mile radius from where i live (19036).

Thanks.

The pipe under the trans is smashed flat so is somewhat restrictive.
