I got my muffler in yesterday and my tips in this morning. Now all i have to do is get them installed. I have got some quotes and the prices seem very high. How much did everyone else pay. I got quotes between 125-160. I dunno i guess either way i will have to pay it.

I paid around 130 at the shop for installation and tips I bought there. Took about 90 minutes

i just called some local shops and they said because i didnt buy the muffler from them that installation is going to be minimium of 350 dollars. It almost gave me a heart attack. but i did talk to one guy and he said he has a cheap pipe bender at his house and if i had measurments of where i need the bends and the degrees he could do it cheap. Everyone out there that has a single outlet to a dual outlet could you check and see if you could like get me some measurments. pretty please lol. Or if there is a website or something where i could get some of these it would be so nice.

That'* a load of BS, find more shops. All you should have to pay for is labor and some materials, a little bit of piping and hangars.

i called every number in the yellow pages and my lowest quote was 300 plus tax and stuff. This is ridiculous. I am going to call some places in vermont tomorrow. So you think i should not pay over 150 for installation and the little things i need? thank you guys for your input
