Default Fabricating a 91-92 header downpipe?

I can't seem to locate a downpipe for my 91-92' header (tried the classifieds threads). Apparently, all of the auto wreckers cut them in half. Can a swift muffler guru fabricate one, without making it look "smog unfriendly"? The smog weenies get weird about anything in front of the Cat. I sure wish someone had one of these downpipes for sale!!!

If you can't get the bottom 1/2 from Joey then either purchase a whole header from Hotshot or just the '91 stock header down pipe from them. They don't officially make a '91 stock header down pipe, but if you can't find one from anywhere else they will make one for you. It's something that has been kicked around lately and having a 2.5" out would be nice.. If there is even a slight chance people will want it, it's not a lot of work for John to knock some out. It's been talked about and he's at least on to the idea. A phone call may get it done...

Thanks, fellas. I'll probably give Joey a call. I have a very swanky muffler guy who can probably put something together but I would rather it be stock, if at all possible.

In case anybody is following this, I mailed out my 1992 downpipe to SLeepr this weekend as I am about to give up hope on my 1992 header with the broken rusted studs...
