OK....we're cookin with Crisco now
I swung by a local muffler shop real quick today to get him to check out my exhaust and maybe get a quote.
As soon as I pulled it in he said "Well, you CAT is ****. You're going to need a new one of those. I can have you out of here with everything done for $275"
To which I replied....."huh" and he scratched his head and immediatley said "Make that $250 and we'll get 'er taken care of."
ME: Well, when can you get it done
MUFFLER DUDE: When do you WANT it done
ME: Uh, now is good
MUFFLER DUDE: Alright pull 'er on in
an hour and a half later and not only did they toss a new muccler and CAT on there for me, but the guys were awesome and welded my door hinge up for FREE!
They definitely scored a repeat customer today. I even asked them if they did that sort of a thing up front and they told me no. I stepped out of the shop to call my wife and 2 min later when I walked back in they had brought it down off the lift, jacked the door up, and were tacking it in place
So....here are the pics.
Might not be purty, but it isn't falling off anymore
Hanging there all by itself....aaaahhh....they grow up so fast
and the new pipeage...
Best part about all of this other than the fact that I was out of there in an hour and a half for a grand total of $250 when I thought I was just going to get an overpriced quote..........is the fact that my busted up CAT is what was causing the restriction and now it has GOBS of power and is running like a beast
Well, as much as a '92 XJ can anyway.
Next on the list is the starter. After that is done we'll move on to cosmetics. Total Cost so far with the HEEP, Pipeage, and starter = $580
