Default what goes into installing flowmaster exhaust?

im going to put on flowmaster 80 series and i want to know step by step what goes into that. i know i have to order it obviously, but do i just buy the muffler and the tips and go to a muffler shop to get everything installed? does the muffler come with the hanger already attached? any comments are appreciated.

essentaly yes. It should only cost about $100 for a muffler shop to install it for you. They'll have to use some new pipe since the muffler is smaller than OEM and you'll have new tips.
