I'm not above scrapping them completely and building my own plumbing, but if the modifications to the pipes aren't that bad, I may just buy some tubing and bends and get it all TIG welded up.
Nate, you can do what I did:

That looks like a grade A job to me. The passenger side pipe looks factory, and the drivers side looks very good too. It would look factory too if the SD dent wasn't in the pipe. I hope to do this sometime.

You definately need to look into an intake updrade. My advice is, "Do not buy an K&N!" There are so many better options.

The truck is your signature looks wicked bad too!

Yeah I might do something about that dent at some point. Maybe re-work the intake then fix the dent.

You can always use the water and freeze trick. Lots of motorcycle guys use it when they sent their pipes.
