Ok I ordered the exhaust last week ($335 shipped from AutoAnything - they had a discount for orders over $150).
Now I want to make sure I have all the parts I need for when it comes in next week.
I think I need 4x bolts for the cats, 2x gaskets for the cats, as well as some "better" clamps. I say that last part because people were not happy with the clamps that were included. Should I get stainless steel band clamps? I intend to have it welded (unless I don't have to) so factor that in the equation.
Also, what size bolts do I get? Are those and the gaskets dealer only items?
The only thing you should need is new flange gaskets for where your catback and b pipes bolt together, I highly recommend getting the oem metal gaskets(part number: 20692-A60001). Other than that the catback you ordered will have all the hardware you will need. You will just reuse the b pipe nuts, the b pipes have studs in them.
I would install the system and then when everything fits and your satisfied with the tone have it welded. I wouldnt waste money on expensive clamps. Just use anti seize on all the threads for easy removal. Nissan Gaskets for the flanges #20692-65j00 is what you want from the dealer, should be about $9 each so dont let the stealership rape you. Shouldnt need any bolts as the oem bpipes have studs.

Ok so I got all the parts at the dealership and was ready to do the install this coming weekend. I get an email from auto anything saying that the ship date has been delayed to 12/14.
So now I'm trying to patch the exhaust until I get my new one. The flange that attaches The muffler to the tailpipe has rusted off (causing the tail pipe to droop). Last night I wrapped it with the muffler tape and it seems to be holding (although still leaking).
It got me thinking, what If I were to cut the flange off and clamp on a sleeve? Would that be sufficient to repair this permanently? The rest of the exhaust seems to be in good shape. Or will doing this just delay the inevitable? Not trying to be cheap but if I can save money I'm all for it as I can still cancel the order.
