FYI recycle your stock downpipe

I took my stock downpipe to a local recycling/salvage center and got $145. I had to show a receipt proving I bought and installed a new downpipe so the owner could prove I didn't steal it if he ever needed to. Other than that it was a piece of cake and I got more than I was initially going to try selling it for. Keep in mind this was in NC so local prices may vary.

Those cat converters bring money, it's the platinum in there. That's why low life scum cut them off peoples cars & trucks to sell. That is a lot more than I thought one would bring.

Hmm...I'm pretty sure I threw mine into the junk metal bin at work after it sat in the garage for a couple years.

That sucks. Cleaned out my garage prior to moving to Cali and got $120. They wanted the pipe cut so they could inspect the cats.

I'm running a K04 so part of that $120 went to buying a CCTA down pipe for smog if needed.
