whats all that include? are you running a pipe out the back? dual exit? does that price include the muffler?

if you get the muffler from summit ($65), you can have them weld it up and a turndown for another $35 or so. but if you're having pipes done up, id say $125-150 + muffler sounds about right. find out how much they're charging for that flowmaster first.

If your getting a FLOWMASTER 40 DUAL outlet with duals out the back and TWO 3" stainless steel tips thats a good deal for $250 out the door in Cali. The DUAL 40 F/M is more then the single. :thumbup:

Thats still a $100 too much. Most exhuast shops here do a Flowmaster with duals for $150. and that is with the stainless steel piping. I did one on my old truck for $125.

dual outlet flowmaster is only $65 from summit. they're all basically the same price... then the custom piping should only be 50-60 per pipe.

OK, southern Cali. is always cheaper than the north we go there always to get rims,paint you name it, it's cheaper. This is the break down at a muffler shop in the NORTH, 40 FLOWMASTER ($65). 2- polished Stainless steel 3" tips $25 each (thats duals remember). one 2 1/4" pipe to one side $25. Labor for welds brackets/clamps ect. $150 to 175. This QUOTE is from a cheaper SHOP. You do the MATH, $250 is a good price in the NORTH. L.A. area is bigger with more SHOPS so the competition is better and that drives the prices down. Flowmaster, Inc. is housed in a 100,000 square foot facility in Santa Rosa, California, employing 300+. In the NORTH if it does not have a F/M it's STOCK, lol. Some shops are getting $85 for a 40 dual outlet FLOWMASTER muffer. Duals for $150 with a muffler and SS tips that maybe in the south. :nono:

$150 for stainless is correct. I paid even less.

I'm looking thruogh the paper right now at all the ads for the shops here. Sorry if you paid more, but thats how much it cost here.

If you shop around you'll find cheaper prices. Some shops charge different prices to different people also.

But like Photo said, in in S. CA. Prices are low here. Especially when I hear what some of you guys in other areas paid for other things:uhoh:

Guys check this out I'v been wanting to do this for awhlie and with all the talk I said HELL lets go do it. TODAY I went to the same shop that added my FLOWMASTER 40 and STAINLESS STEEL tip. I want to replace my stock 2 1/4" pipe from the muffler to the tip with 2 1/2". I need 4ft of piping bent and welded up just like the stock one. The guy (owner of the shop) said it will cost $100 on my BLAZER. only in the NORTH!!!!! :barf:

Dayum, that's unreal! Are they custom bent pipes are pre-made?

I'm jealous :cuss:
Custom bent. They have pre-bent ones hanging on the wall, but everyone has their custom bent. They use that machine. It's not really that hard to do.
