If you can do any wrench work you can unbolt at the cat. conv. and unbolt y pipe from manifold and drop the front exhaust. Advance Auto carries some of the flex pipes. I got mine from Jegs. If you know someone with a mig welder they can weld a new one on. You can cut the old one out with a mataba grinder or use a sawsall. Leave as much neck on the pipe as possible. There is not much there and you need to grind the pipe as even as possible to allow the new one to match up. They come in different diam. so measure the pipe size. Have them tack the new one on and get it where you want it and the job can be finished off the car. Takes a couple hours. and cost about 30 bucks. You have to have a welder person or you are going be at the shops mercy. Usually you don't have holes in pipe up there because that is some stronger original equipment steel. That flex pipe can make a racket because evertime you hit a bump you get a different sound. You might check on Ebay and get the y and flex pipe there cheaper if someone has them. Hope this helps
