No hate...just wallet envy!

Going through life you should make the best of buds with your Dr, your accountant, your mechanics or dealers service manager, your bartender and for good luck spool an attorney along just in case!

Wow, that'* a lot. I pay $50 hr, and most of the time I'm charged for 1 hour even if they go over.

I'll check a few more places, that was from a Monro close to me, and they seemed to know what they were talking about, they said about an hour or 2 at the most to get it done

I'm sure they are charging more because your providing the parts. Ask the rate before you tell them that.

I had the OEM SSEi tips welded directly to the outlets on the Mannaflow. y exhaust guy really know'* his stuff and when he cut the original OEM'* off, he left as much material on as possible to allow for fit on the new set up.

$92/hour sounds a bit high. If possible stay away from the big chains, and see if there is a custom shop near you. You'll get a better price and you may be able to work out a cash deal.

2 hours sounds about right. If I remember correctly, mine was done in just under 2.

ok, i'll check some small places, so for the tips should I have them cut off the part from the outlet of the muffler and weld that to the magnaflow so the little clamp still is there?
