Am I Getting Screwed?

  1. So I went by my local muffler shop today to get an estimate on how much it would cost to cut my existing Y-Pipe off and install a true dual system with straight piping going from the cats to my mufflers, no mid pipe at all.

    After seeing how much pipe they would need I got told the price would be $325 for everything including labor, pipe cost and what-not. Now, a question to everyone on here. Is that too much or a decent price. Am I getting played or what?
  2. Go for it man, thats not bad-- CHOP
  3. You might want to look around a bit before doing it. More than likely, you'll be spending money on a modification that causes a performance loss.

    Your OEM exhaust is a tuned system. By hacking it up, you will be affecting exhaust scavenging. Expect to lose some performance for your efforts. There's no way in hell I'd be messing with a late model exhaust unless it was due to the installation of long tubes, a custom tune, and a blower or turbo.
  4. thoss are likely crimp bended pipes as well. I'd pass and look into a high quality aftermarket piece thats mandrel bent. I've seen guys swap in stock pipes from a GT
