Just curious, how much ya think?

I know there is a metric **** tonne of info on this but I want a specific answer to a a specific question.

I think Im gonna delete my 2nd cats, and replace with straight pipes. No need to go buy an X or an H or anything like that. Just gonna get em cut out, and replaced with 2 straight pipes.
Should be just about any damn competent shop able to do that?

How much ya figure? I just wanna make sure I don't get hosed.

Spare me the search. Ive earned at least one fast answer around here lol.

Mine was around $420 for everything you described, parts (steel) and labor. If they don't use steel, it will be a bit cheaper. I have seen around $3-500 for the average on the forums.

K. Thanks. I probably could have PMd you cos you were one of the guys I was hoping to hear from.

I gotta pay cash, cos if my wife sees a credit card slip where I am paying money to make this car any louder.....
Once its done tho she will have no idea. To her we sound the same as an F150 with a hole in the can.

LOL!!! Best post ever.

250 for both cats and res at my local shop so maybe 125?

Welds are clean too, so it wasn't a hack job. You'll enjoy the sound. Mine is a bit raspy without res but I enjoy the volume level of it so its worth it.

Pretty sure Im on track here. Little louder, still got the angry rasp, no drone.
Lord knows I have been looking at it forever. Sound being one of the best things about this car I have always been a little leery of messing with it. But Im bored

Cut em out and placed straight pipes. I've seen the work when my car was on the lift and it was clean welds. None of that clumpy mess.

Use stainless if you don't want it to rust, but I don't think a lot of shops keep that on hand.

Use Stainless Steel as the member above mentioned. All higher end muffler shops will carry it.

I paid $300 CAD for my Secondary cat / Reso delete and straight piped in stainless here in Toronto.

Paid a buddy $125 for a nice TIG welding job, and paid $50 for the 2.5" SS tubing....of course just took them off when I put the headers & mids on...

This is what I was thinking.. I remember when i had a 3in exhaust bent and installed on my 69 Camaro with x pipe and 40 series flowmasters for $400.. Maybe Canada is a bit more expensive and the AMG tax will factor in but if it is just to cut pipes out and weld in new ones it should be cheap..

I paid $40 because I know the owner. That being said, I think they'd charge a regular customer $100.

30 mins sounds right, too.

Haha . No worries. Yea, price/time will depend on how good of a place you go to and what they use for the pipes, also location/where you live.
