Exhaust question

What would be the quickest and cheapest way to fix this? http://webphotos.com/member/7612/247553.JPG
Can this elbow be just re-bent or maybe it needs to be cut out and a less arched piece welded in? How much something like this usually runs? Can I fix this myself?

Re: Exhaust question

Yeah, funny boy! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I guess if I can't get it fixed by next week I'll just take the front shaft off for the 4+ hr trip so I don't rub a hole in my exhaust.

Re: Exhaust question

An exhaust shop should be able to heat the pipe in place with a torch and move it over enough to not rub. I had to have this done with the drivers side pipe from the manifold because it was too close to the frame and brake lines. He just heated the pipe and put pressure with a pry bar until it had enough clearance. You can't even tell where it was done.
