I wasn't expecting a reasonable price of coarse, but I thought I'd give em a try. They wanted to charge me $100 to weld a Super 44 on my 03' Sierra lol. No brackets, no hangers, just weld the inlet cause I already cut the old flowmaster off prior. I laughed when they told me the price. I wish my old exhaust "go to guy" Performance Exhaust in fremont was still around, he would have done it for $40.

Maybe the cheap prices of your 'old' exhaust guy are the reason why he is no longer in business, lol. I agree that what you are asking for is not a lot of work, but businesses have things like 'overhead'.

lol yeah, he was a nice guy and charged fair prices based upon the difficulty and materials etc. I understand overhead, but this one is about as easy as it gets with minimal material and gas being used. I offered $60 but they wouldn't budge. It probably just wasn't worth it to them.

Well if it was the one on Thornton I would have went next door to shakers pizza cuz they got good beer on tap including denog. Most likely u went to the one in Irvington. Both locations in Fremont suck ass. I get all my work done by Alan at guranteed mufflers.

My V is louder than any mustang in Fremont.

Haha yeah I went to the one in Irvington. I ended up going to a place by my house in Tracy called Zimudio's (I think) pretty cool small shop, the guy did good work, clean welds even painted the welds and only charged me $40. Your car sounds pretty nice man, I like it. Whats your set up?
