How much should i expect to pay for Borla Exhaust w/Install?

I am really interested in putting the Borla exhaust on my car, but how much should i expect to pay for the exhaust and how much is install an plus will a shop charge me for shipping? If so how much does a cat-back exhaust weigh??

Thank You
Alex

i paid $580 shipped for my borla system and got it within 3 days after ordering. it was from performance-center. the box was hugeee but mostly for foams to cushion the parts. i paid $50 for install at a honda/acura shop. i love the way it sounds, it growls but not annoying. from 1-3k rpm u hear this sweet growling sound and after that it goes away. my cai starts screaming at 4k+rpm so i love the combination of both sounds

edit: i had the borla shipped to my house and after i got it, i put all the parts in the trunk and took it to the shop to be install. hte stock pipe is still at the shop because its one long peice pipe that cant be taken apart so it didnt fit in the car. the owner of the shop doesnt mind me keeping it there since i go back for other stuff, lol.

LMAO!!! thats brex's auction. he tried to sell it to me for 480 but i found it online for 520 (40 shipping and 20 tax brings to 580) so i went for that instead
wow, performancecenter raised their price for the borla up to 635! lucky i got in on time i think if u wanna get it for 500-ish price, u should buy brex's system.

one thing ive learned with this stuff is that shipping is always negotiable, if you can find it cheaper somewhere else, but they are charging you for shipping... tell these guys that you can get it for less, i guarantee they'll price match, and you'll still get it w/ free ship

its worth a shot

If i were you if you have a couple good jack stands and some good hand tools and an hour or two i wouldn't pay someone to put the borla exhaust on. I did it in just under an hour and a half. The part that took the longest was breaking the bolts lose on the cat. After that it took about 25 mins. (my air compressor wasn't working so I couldn't use my air tools.)
