My system cost over $1300 all-in, two days without the car, and months previously spent searching for a shop that was a) willing to do a full custom job and tweak it for me, and b) actually had the skills and professionalism to do it right. I found four shops within 50 miles of home or work. One just said they were too busy with full-on street rod/custom work to take on an exhaust job. Another was not willing to do anything besides make a copy of the stock setup, didn’t want to reuse my MagnaFlow, and got dodgy when I asked about “fine-tuning” afterward. Two others were clearly just young guys with welders, a lift, and a pipe bender. I finally found a speed shop not even ten minutes from the office by happenstance. Struck up a conversation at a gas station with a guy in a absolutely incredible custom 70’s Chevy pickup truck, and he tells me about the shop that did the work. After that it was a great experience with real pros.
