Exhaust wholesalers? (Calgary)

I have installed those exhaust systems you get with all the bends complete: You just cut off the old system with a saw and slip on and clamp...
Trouble is, I was helping a friend way up north who had a shop, and I don't know where he got the exhaust systems.
Does anyone know where I can get a whole system like this, for cheap? I want to install myself, and don't have the tools for mandrel bending... My wife's little import car is needing exhaust badly, the whole system including flexpipe, and we can't afford the $300+ for a shop to do it...
Can anyone make a recommendation?

I wonder you can make something work out an exhaust system from a Topaz?

I have a brand new piece of pipe that wasn't used.

I'm not sure if it will work or not... What part of the system is it?
I need from the front of the flex pipe back to just behind the resonator... (If I keep the resonator!)

The major length pice.
Somewhere around 7'- 8' long.
1 1/2" dia. I think.

Also, You would need a *Walker* distributor.

Is it just a long straight piece of pipe, then? I would have to check and see if my car has any bends in front...
Walker makes all these bolt-on systems? I am hoping for the quick slip-on route, but will have to make due if I can't afford that...

No it has the bend in it where it goes over the axle.

I could take a pic when I go out to take the trash to the alley

A bend over the axle? You mean the pipe is long enough to go from the engine to the back? Hmmm. A picture would say a lot...
Mine is a fwd, but the pipe over the rear control arm is newer, so maybe there is enough pipe... then maybe all I would need is the flexpipe? I have seen them at Partsource and they look VERY similar to the one on the car...
If it works out and might fit, how much do you want for it, Dennis?

Hmmm, sounds reasonable...
We'll see how it works out, once I see the picture and measure the pipe on the car.
