Yikes, that's an expensive exhaust.
I second the yikes!!!!!! That's a lot of cabbage for an exhaust.
Cheapest I've ever seen it since I bought the car.
That is expensive for an exhaust system, but only $34.95 for FedEx Overnight shipping? Wow.
Yeah, I've paid nearly that to ship small packages 2 day ground.
Expensive, yes. But I'd be kicking myself when they discontinue it if I didn't buy it.
I got mine in '06. It was just under a grand then - shipped.
.......... and wait 'till you open the 2 boxes - makes the other stuff look like Taiwan junk.
Take your time and follow the instructions. Measure twice, cut once. Use a 4-point lift. Go way back in time and find my posts on how to keep the system from "walking" from side to side.
To paraphrase a pretty common TV ad: "You're gonna like the way you sound - I guarantee it !".

Hijo de la gran puta madre thats gonna be nice!
Northstar + Corsa =
You guys really like your Caddy's.. very cool!
Sub, IIRC, you painted everything but your tips with high heat flat black, correct? I'm thinking I might paint the pipes, but keep the mufflers and tips bare.
Everything back to the tip clamps is hi-temp flat black. Way less obvious from the side (admittedly - if on your hands & knees). I did it AFTER several months, so the mandrel machine (shaping) oils could burn off.
Each muffler and the resonator has a weep hole at a low point - don't be dismayed if you see a few drips in the fall and spring.
You'll need to remove the after-cat O2 sensor - after you remove the wiring harness shield. Use STSM screws to replace the shield.
Find Joe Tahoe's Seville/CORSA pictures - way up on a body lift.
Let's face it those of us who still own and enjoy our old Sevilles and Eldorados value what the cars are and not just what someone tells us they are worth. Almost anything you do for your, now vintage, Cadillac will not be repaid at resale time, the value of the work you do or pay for on these cars is only repaid in the enjoyment that the use and ownership of these now unique personal luxury cars of the last two decades bring to us. Fortunately these cars were produced with good materials and engineering that even as they age they still make very presentable transportation ..... and for those of us who own them worth the cost of their maintenance.
These are not cheap "transportation" cars for the financially stressed. While attractive to many, their proper upkeep makes them a car that will quickly out run the "cheap used car" buyers out of resources. Fortunately for those who can afford the expense and are enamored with the attributes of these Cadillacs, they are many cars still in very good condition to be had for very little automotive money. But the rewards are not to be had in "investment" value, but rather in the enjoyment of a good performing, uniquely styled car.
