I've kinked my exhaust pipe about 5 cm before the muffler bolts on. I can replace the pipe for around $250 or I can cut the kinked part of the pipe out and weld the flang back on, shortening the pipe by about 10cm. This I can get my old man to do for me which will cost me nothing. Should I do it, or cut my losses and by another pipe? Another option which I've already ruled out is taking it to someone to replace the kinked piece of metal with a staight one, but the will cost more in labour than I'll save. By the way, I'm changing the muffler and planing on dyno tuning it after as well.
