Default S60 R Straight Pipe

I'm looking to do a resonator delete and put in a straight pipe on my S60 R. I'm having a lot of trouble actually finding a straight pipe online, does anyone know where I can get one?

Thats what my mechanic did with my crv resonator, cut er off and clamped the pipe on. You could call a muffler shop and just get a piece of pipe if your gonna do it your self.

I'd just have a local shop do it. Mine was done, BTW, and it's nice can't wait to buy this kit next year!

Muffler shop.

Napa will cut you a pipe too if it's just a simple straight one.

Any idea how I figure out what to ask for? Diameter, length, etc? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I've never modified a car before. I figured this would be an easy place to start.

Gotta measure it yourself. Cut out the resonator and measure the length, then measure diameter. remember the new pipe will have to fit either inside or outside the existing one.
