Its not a bad price (assuming mandrel bends) but its not a deal either.

I'd compare it to the OBX. You can get that and install it yourself for under $400. Why is his more expensive?

If it does something you want (larger pipes, true duals/X-pipe/ diiferent exit location,) and you can justufy it, than sure. Not a bad price at all.

If it is just alumanized pipe into magnaflows... Pass. I think I've seen the actual Magnaflow stainless cat-back for less than that.

You can get that setup at 80% of muffler shops, pass on that "deal". Buy a complete catback exhaust system for that price that you can install yourself for free.

yeah..the piping itself isn't that expensive so unless there's something really custom that you want to do then it's not that great a deal at all. my friend who works at a muffler shop told me they would do a magnaflow custom cat back for 300...maybe try to talk down the price if you really want it. or like ^ said you can get the OBX full catback for 380 new.

Thats a really bad deal actually. My friend brought his own muffler to a shop i know and they made him a complete catback for 80 bux. If you are willing to pay 560, you might as well get a brand name catback.
