For the record everyone i said i would spend 1200 IF NEEDED. I dont want to spend 1200$ on an exhaust, i just was letting him know that i would be willing to spend that much if thats what it took to get a decent exhaust. Im just looking for an a decent exhaust with decent sound. There is other stuff i want tooo get so the less money the better
Edit: P.S. The car as my avatar is a joke.
then tell us the goals for your car...are you wanting to just make a nice clean DD...a full blown v6...or just drive the v6 until you can save for a GT. Goals are a good thing to have so that you don't make mistakes now that'll cost you money you didn't need to waste.
NOW....seeing that you want to get out cheap. go to a salvage yard and get an hpipe off of a GT..and the over axle tubing...that'll save you a good bit of cash right off the back if the tubings in good condition...if not just ask for OEM tubing when you go to a shop...
for mufflers look into thrush welds....they are the same thing as flowmaster 40's just half the price...so you'll be able to get both mufflers for one 40
now for the install...don't be afraid to walk away from a shop after recieving a quote....if they want your business a good shop will haggle on price..and don't be afraid to tell a shop exactly what you want. Yes they install shit all the time...however they probly don't DD a 3.8/3.9
Overall you should get out between $200-300 depending on install and that pricing includes new tubing (around here)...so depending on how cheap the used tubing you find is that's the extra savings..
if you want to get into something a bit more fun then you cna look into a prochamber...however that's another story
