Is this a good deal?

I can get an exhaust system (manifold, piping, cat, muffler, etc.) for around $465 shipped to my door.

Is that a good deal?

yes, all new. APN header, dynomax exhaust, and a direct fit cat. All piping and hardware included.

Price out the components separately to see if its a good deal.

I bought an exhaust manifold for $130, flowmaster for $60, cat for $85 tail pipe for $18 and down pipe for $60. I think I used 4 exhaust clamps and a new hanger so that was another $25ish, so mine was about $380 for everything

I dont want anything too loud ( I do a lot of nature watching), and I heard the dynoamax is not that loud. Is the cat you got for $85 a direct fit?

I've personally have heard the dynomax system - and it is not loud, but it sounds like poop.

When you get it past 2800 rpm you would think that you are in a honda. I strongly advise to go with something else. A flowmaster 50 series might be what you're looking for.





but all that for that price shipped doesn't sound bad at all to me

I did some repricing and I can get everything but the downpipe for about $400. Where is a good place to get a downpipe?
