Price doesn't sound bad...actually, sounds pretty good if that includes labor.

Are you referring to the donut that goes between the down-pipe and the exhaust manifold?

Depends on the parts you are buying. For good parts and labor, that probably ain't too bad a price....

It would probably be worth spending the money on a high-flow cat, if you're interested in the performance increase. Also DEFINITELY go for stainless tips over chrome. Those chromies will rust up within a year, unless you polish them all the time.
