Got mine from Miami muffler, paid $320 for it. Wouldn't pay more because I just don't think it's worth it.

This one is bolted directly to a Begi SGDP. If you want the same one I'm sure they would sell you one for the same price + shipping. Me, TValenziano and Naarleven are all using it with no problems so far. I think Tyson also just bought one.

My shizzzz was custom built from existing pieces and added an 18" resonator to the midpipe. Transversed the existing Borla for a center dump to compliment the cut rear bumper.
1 hour of my time....not 10.
Price for work and use of lift - two tacos and a soda!
Sounds great through all rpm ranges and still have money left over to POZ with Hustler!
It's all been done before....it's just a matter of how fresh it is.

As Phil said there's at least 4 of us running these.

It took them less than 10hrs to make all 4, and WE paid $300 and change for the whole exhaust, not just parts. And ours include a magnaflow.


I'll give you that CT > FL in terms of cost, but I wouldn't pay more than $500 for that from a stranger, let alone if a friend built it for me.

Lol, with friends like that.....

You guys can all say what you want, my bad on how much the stuff cost, i believe it was 200 for everything. Plus the welding rod, plus half a bottle of argon for back purging all the welds. This is a full 409 stainless exhaust. 400 bucks is not expensive when you look at the welds and quality of it (in my eyes). Im not sure why i said 700 dollars, i didnt mean to type that. If i lived in FL i would probably opt for the cheaper metal with lesser quality but the fact is, CT roads are garbage and have salt on them until flippin july, which is when dot usually decides to do some sweeping. Say what you will, i like it and thats pretty much all that matters.

or better yet, buy some tubing and decent welder for less than the cost of a custom fab one.

You said materials alone were $300 w/10hrs of labor??? Now you're saying materials were $200 and you paid a total of $400... minus a few things... so you pay your guy about $15hr for "meticulous welding"... don't pro fabricators make a ****-ton more? I'm not trying to be picky, just looking to educate myself on how this stuff workd... I honestly don't know.

I like the idea of $320 like the easy-peesy Magnaflow posted earlier, it looks just about as simple and light as you can make it. I'm trying for the life of me to see how people pay $700-$1000 for (at face value) what appears to be the exact same thing. Seriously, it's just one pipe, a few bends, 3pipe welds, and 4 hangars?

When I do my homework eventually in the SanDiego area, and get quotes from speed-shops, regular muffler shops, Jose-muffler-depot, to see how much variation there is in the market.

I wasn't kidding earlier when I talked about getting an old stock diesel exhaust from a full-size truck, cutting it up, and seeing what happens... I'd buy a decent muffler of course, but it's just ******* metal pipe in the end.

if you really think about it no matter how much money you spend on an exhaust setup, in a couple years time it will look like ****, unless you dont drive your car at all! if there is a cheaper and better way of getting a job done then that is the route that should be taken. **** if i had a grand i wouldn't drop it all on an exhaust, id get a cheap *** setup that will work and spend the rest of the money on something else that i have planned for my car!

$400 is a big way from $700, but whatever


@ $400 I'd say well done

@ $700 I'd say


Either way be happy and enjoy

If anyone is close enough to CT to consider getting an exhaust made there, then drive to nearby NJ instead, and directly to Shore Motorsports. Superior workmanship, superior service, and Tim needs money to buy a lift for his garage.

Then you can say, "My downpipe is as awesome as EvanK's."

What do you do "GUARANTEED?"
I have charged people more than $700 installed. Oops.

Oh wait, those included metal core cats and mufflers.

EDIT: I don't see anything wrong with the fabricator/welder charging you $40/hr.
