Exhaust Shop Question...

Synchros shot? Weird noises while shifting? Not sure what needs to be replaced?

Exhaust Shop Question...

Postby six » Mon Nov 18, 2013 9:47 pm

So, my car is a little old to say the least, so bolt-on exhaust systems for it are pretty much non-existent now. I was thinking of swapping out the exhaust since that is pretty much the only part of the car that is left to mod (the I and H of the IHE combo has been done already).

What I am wondering is, do any of you know around how much, ballpark-wise, would an exhaust shop charge to lop off the stock mufflers and weld/attach on new mufflers (that I will be providing)? Just a simple cut and weld, but a dual-muffler setup. Should I expect to be paying north of $100 for that? I have no experience with this since all of the previous exhaust mods have been bolt-on for me.

i don't have too much experience with this, but a midas (in new paltz, ny) once only charged me $20 to lop off my aftermarket tailpipe and weld on a new "stock-looking" tailpipe ending. that was close to 10 years ago and just at one shop, but maybe you'll get lucky.
BUT DEM FAHGLEITZ!! :shock:

Your only real option is to go get estimates from shops in the area. Its all a bit of a gamble. I paid $90 to have my muffler replaced with a custom twin tip. On the other hand, I had a custom center pipe quoted at $160 that I talked down to $105. I could get the part shipped for $105.

I paid just under a 100 when I was doing something similar on the truck, but that was like 8 years ago.
