300E Y-pipe

Would have posted this in perf. paddock, but more 124 guys are in this forum..

I've read that a couple of the 300Es on the site are running y-pipes instead of center mufflers, I was under the impression that time-valve was the one making them.

Well, I called them today credit card in hand to have one fabricated, and they were adamant about not replacing the center muffler w/ a Y... I did point out that the y pipe in no way affected or bypassed any catalytic converter or o2 sensor... but to no avail..

Who made yours? I really wanted to get one in stainless (rules out most muffler shops) and I have a mig welder myself, but no access to a pipe bender

Any ideas or leads would be greatly appreciated

for my car it wasn't going to be a bolt on because from the cat back it was one piece, so the center "suitcase" resonator would have to be cut out. local meineke guy quoted me $180 to fabricate it - not stainless steel though and i hadn't haggled yet cuz i wasn't ready to do it...

Not sure why they won't sell it to you. I would try calling back again. Maybe they just want you to be sure it is what you want.

I don't think Time Valve makes the Y-pipe you mention, just the one for the 500E

Well, I figured that since they weld each system together by hand, that they could fabricate a y-pipe if I bought it with the rear muffler. Ehh... I'll find someone who's mandrel bending stainless and have them do it -- Also I'll shop around for prices and let people know where I bought it and how much it cost
