How much did your exhaust cost?

I wanna make sure I'm not getting ripped off by my muffler shop here. I'm gonna be getting a header-back system minus the muffler, so basically what I'll be paying for is a new Cat, the piping and labor.

I got quoted $175 for the Magnaflow catalytic converter, $75 for the 2.5in piping and $100 for labor to get it all hooked up to my muffler. So $350 total.

I kinda feel like I'm getting ripped off on the Cat so I'm also hoping someone can provide me a Magnaflow part number to look for on Ebay so I can purchase it separately, and also tell me if this cat I found on Craigslist is legit.

Also, if you can remember how much $$$ you shelled out, that would be most helpful so I and any future readers can get a gauge on what muffler shops charge on average to do our kind of work since a lot of those places seem pretty shady. Thanks!

Re: How much did your exhaust cost?

Are all Magnaflow's considered 'High-Flow"?

Re: How much did your exhaust cost?

i got a free catback from my friend. the muffler design is weird as hell tho it loops through 2 small mufflers. it sounds ehh outside of vtec needs something bigger than a bottle resonator . but it was free and helped my mpg so i wont bitch too much.

oh its an old system from janspeed.

Re: How much did your exhaust cost?

I got jibbed on my ****. The first thing I ever did to my car was put a fart can on it. Paid 100 for the noise tube and 100 for labor. Fml. Haha

Re: How much did your exhaust cost?

Greddy Evo 2- $600 + $50 to install
Hytech Rep Header- $300 + $100 to install
2.5 inch matching test pipe - $25 (installed with the header)

So I basically paid $1075 for my whole exhaust package.

Yep I am sober now, I think.

Anyways, I know I paid exactly 295$ on the cat-back, I think the high flow cat was closer to 100$ to be honest.
