Default Flowmaster installment price?

I'm considering getting a flowmaster 80 in the future..i'm curious if anyone has audio of one on an L36?

also what would be a fair price to have it put on with the extra piping,ect?..i'll most likely go with stainless...i know of one shop nearby that does flowmasters quite a bit and are really good but everyone tells me they are expensive so i need something to go by price-wise.

Expect to pay $60-$120 depending on who does it.

muffler should be 60 bucks at the shop. another 20 to weld it on and cut the old one off. so a little below 100. more if you want a fancy chrome tip they are usually around 30 bucks...just doing a muffler really isn't going to make a big difference...i would save up and have a pipe bent from your cat back to your flowie.

also i had 3 different flowies on my max and hated them. i finally went with a thraight through magnaflow and it sounded awesome. very mean and low tones. not ricey at all.

Nismo:

Bonnevilles have MANDREL BENT STAINLESS PIPES from the factory. No need to have new pipe made or bent.

Bonnevilles have funky tips that are different per generation, as well as exhaust brackets that may add to the cost.

Most shops don't STOCK mufflers for our application.

you just go and buy whatever tips you want most exhaust shops have a whole wall of different ones...

stocking muffler'* for your application?
if you mean do exhaust shops stock your stock mufflers obviously not.
it soundly like the poster wants performance and sound...an aftermarket muffler would yield both.

Klystronik:
Some exhaust shops do not like to work with stainless and or charge ALOT more. which is something to keep in mind. but it sounds like you already have found a good local one. definitly call around for the best price. welding on an exhaust is pretty damn simple and the shops love to try and convince you it'* a big deal.

Nismo, let me repeat myself. There'* ZERO performance to be gained by replacing all the piping on a car that already has 2.5" mandrel bent stainless exhaust from the factory.

These ARE NOT MAXIMA'*.

Do NOT dish out advice on this Forum unless you know what you're talking about. You are dishing out potentially COSTLY advice to our members with no experience in our application to back it up.

My advice to YOU is to go back to your Maxima Forum and hang with them.

Guess what? He JUST PUT IT ON. He was the second quickest car here for almost 2 years with stock exhaust with the exception of Headers.
