Ok I am ready to do my exhaust on my car....most of the guys I talk to on here say that they have gotten there´s done even in stainless from muffler shops for like 250-300 bucks....well where do you guys go? I went to a local one here that is suppose to be really good and for stainless they said about 800-1000!!!! Then I went to Meineke and they wanted 400-500 for cat back (including cat cuz mine is shot) 2.5" Then I asked if I could just get my own parts and have them installed and they said no. Someone please provide some solutions. Where can I get my own cat online and what is a good place that will install your own parts...

Okay here´s the scoop.

I went to Fantasy Muffler in Buena Park CA.

I paid 180 bucks for a new cat, and 2.25" aluminized header back exhaust.

Later I paid another 100 for a new muffler and 65 for it to change it to axle back 2.5"

The mufflers I´m using are from AirDynamic Racing in San Diego California. They are duel inline mufflers (seperate canisters welded together)....I would recommend a single though. The one I have is a bit much.

At my work we get APC, Vibrant, Red Hots, Hooker (that´s a stupid name), Borla, and Flowtech mufflers. Are these good products at all? I really don´t know a crappy exhaust from a good quality one, so opinions are always helpful.

Borla, Flowtech and Hooker are actual exhaust makers. Not just rebadgers (APC, Vibrant). Borla is what came on the ZX2 S/R from the factory. That is what I plan on putting on mine, if I ever need it.
