If you have all the piping and muffler, it should not be all that much just to weld it together, but yeah some shops will indeed take advantage of the situation..

^ yea thats all it should be... but they may just say that i have to pay for piping anyways... kinda like how people sell rims with tires, but theyres no discount if you dont want the tires...

one of my freinds dads owns a shop, not sure if he does mufflers, but ill prob ask her and see if i can get a deal or soemthing...



on a side note... bad muffler can cause bad millage correct? becuase ive got a feeling that tis the reason for my 15mpg from 18..

run a SI/SO magnaflow or borla 2.25 in and 2.25 out and it will make a world of difference.

if you think that isnt big enough im running 2.25 SI/SO borla on my 4.0 and dont have any performance issues, i love it.
