$55 is about what you pay for an EL air pipe like that... I payed $30 for mine but that was without the little piece of flexi-pipe to join the two solid sections. You can get crome, 3" mandrel bent pipes specially made up fir around the $100 mark at most exhaust places

I purchased mine off of a guy on these forums. It would be all good if I could find a goddamn piece of flexi-pipe to fit in between the two solid bits! But like Fordfreak said, I probably payed a tad too much... :(

You can get stainless all the way around... People simply use stainless because it looks nicer and lasts longer.
