The outlet pipe on the collector is no longer connected. I can spin it almost all the away around. There is also a small crack radiating from the base (in the collector box not the outlet pipe. I've read that a competent welder can repair this and that it can last for awhile. I'm hoping to go this route as it seems the cheapest solution for the time being...
But I would like to ditch that collector too. Can I install an aftermarket collector and still use the stock muffler for now? Is there even a map for an aftermarket collector with stock exhaust? Is this a fools errand? Another option would be a used collector from eBay. Would it make sense to have welder strengthen the area that breaks?
Looking for advice. Thanks in advance.
