Yes that exhaust will fit, you might want to shop around a bit and see if you can find a lower price. That price seems high to me.

A shop will install your exhaust for you and charge you buy the hour. With a bolt on kit it doesn't take but an hour to put them on. You can do it yourself. All you need to do cut the old one off and bolt in the new one. Simple hand tools to do the job.

I'm sure there is someone on here near you that would help you out.

Thats the same kit I've got on my truck, I bought mine over summit racing for about 550 dollars if I remember right. It fit really good, I have put a few bolt on systems on other vehicles and this one fit the best. I'm really happy with mine, I like the sound a lot.

Mandrel bends vs crush bends. Yes it makes a difference especially on high power engines. Also they are usually 50 state legal and have been test to make maximum power. I spent 400ish on my Magnaflow.

i think what hes saying is go to an exhust shop that dose mandrel bending and get one fabed for cheaper.. thats what i would do, no wya would i spend over 300 bucks on a cat back system its like 2 feet of pipe a muffler and a tip.. what a rip off, i dont care if its mandrel bent or not thats outragouse i would spend 600-800 on a full exhust no problem..

The reason I spend so much on an exhaust is because anytime I've ever gone to an exhaust shop they always screw something up, they NEVER EVER seem to weld tips on straight ect. I guess I'd just rather spend the money for something I know will fit and look right, but just cause I've had bad experience doesnt mean thats always how it is I suppose.

If your going to change your exhaust you might as well get something that sounds decent.
