If you don't mandrel bend it, sat just bend and kink it, sure, it's a restriction. I can't imagine any muffler shop not having a mandrel bender, expanders and all of the associated tools. Maybe San Angelo is a small town, but your not far from the big city, there are Meineke and Midas shops everywhere near you. One bend, done correctly isn't going to make any real restriction, look at the course it takes up and over the differential.

Edit: I mean around Dallas/Ft. Worth, San Antonio and in between.
When I die I want to go peacefully - in my sleep, not yelling and screaming like passengers in my car...
