I like it a lot. The muffler and tip was $185 and the labor was a little more than I had planned but it's welded and has a reducer, a hanger, extra pipe. I paid just under 600$ for total parts and labor. I thought labor would have been less but it's what I wanted and I'm happy with it. The guy did a good job of positioning the resonated tip too.

Oh... Nah... Hahah. I like the flowmaster a lot more now... Lol. It's less than a third of that with labor

Ok it sounds unbelievable though. The tip is extremely heavy duty. 3" polished tip

You got extremely ripped off, I paid $120 including the switch for the Super 44 flowmaster, extra pipe, weld, hanger aswell with the tip. Returning the Magnaflow to Kolak to cover some of the costs but even with the return I only will be spending $185. Looks good though.

All that matters is that I am happy with it and I do not know how to weld or do that stuff. I had it in for service as well for transmission fluid and filter change which was included in the 600$ price. But still more than what you say you had yours done for.

What do you mean the switch? Did you put in a electronic valve? Or are you just saying switching it out costs like the money for shipping

FWIW, I paid $200 even for my flowmaster super 44.

That included the muffler, the labor, I also had them remove the resonator. And add a stainless tip on it. Original quote was $220, but I knew the guy so he did it all for $200 even.

Not trying to bash at all about it my man just wish you could have gotten a better deal, if your happy that's all that matters though hows the tone on cruising speeds?

@Pancake I meant for them giving me the Super 44 in the price switching it instead of the Magnaflow.

I guess when you don't worry about money then paying a little extra doesnt seem like a big deal. I am 28 with a full time job I am sure some of the members on here are still in high school or college and I can understand why alot of people do their own maintenance.

My father and I do alot of maintenance on our vehicles since he is very knowledgable with this stuff but there are certain things he will not mess with and the exhaust was one of them.

Unfortunately when he does not want to work on something on my car I have to take it to a place to get it done right. I wish I got a better deal as well but I am definitely happy. The tone on the thing is awesome, I have noticed all the videos you watch don't do it justice but it is excellent.

I thought it was going to be quiet at first after I picked up my vehicle but now after driving it, I would not want it any louder but it is loud enough.

Videos never do it justice I didnt think mine would sound anything like it did. Im in the same situation though its more satisfying to do things yourself but exhaust I dont even have the tools capable of doing so. You get your d ring shackles yet?

not yet, the ebay ad said 2-3 weeks to manufacture and ship. he emailed me and said he had a set lying around and just need to be painted so he is going to have someone paint them then send them on their way to me. My bright orange d-rings will be here tomorrow though just need to wait for the mounts. after that I am probably done for a little bit on the appearance of my car. next items will all be maintenance needed to be done (diff bushings, new tires, bilstein 4600's, coolant change, maybe pcv valve) then hopefully I am good for a while.

I bought a car that was one owner so it is in excellent condition for the year and has low mileage as well considering the year, but they didnt do the maintenance on it other than oil changes. The truck is very strong but I just need to peace of mind I am taking care of these things myself and I am going to start a log for maintenance performed and the mileage so far.
