There's 1 or 2 companies out there on the other forums that sell the stock manifold with an external wga welded onto it. I would NOT suggest doing your own welding since the flow pattern and weld have to be perfect...but yes it is possible, just very expensive.

Yeah, it's pretty cool. One idea that I came up with though(back when I had the stocker in your situation) was use an external wga as an exhaust cutout. Basically you would take an external wga, weld it onto your catless downpipe and give it a vaccum source. It would kill two birds with one stone; give good performance do to it being a cutout and give that killer wga sound. I never did it, but my friend and I got pretty close to doing it.

Oh, either way though. That's what I had planned on doing but the price just didn't seem worth it to me...so my friend and I came up with this idea.

And to answer your question...yes the exhaust is for sale.
