So I've decided to go ahead and invest in a true dual setup for my sixxer. I've been told that the setup I'm looking for (catback h-pipe, flowmaster 40's, tips, and exhaust cut-outs) should cost about $400. I was also told that a certain performance shop in my area has decent prices and does quality work. This is what they quoted me:

Complete cat back with h-pipe, Flowmaster mufflers, and tips with cutting the bumper to look like a GT will cost around $650, whoever quoted you $400 must not be giving you a price on a complete cat back, because the parts alone cost more than $400 on my end.

well you said that they are cutting out the back bumper. that might be part of the reason. ik mine is true duals and no h pipe and glasspacks which are cheap mufflers and mine was 400ish. flowmaster 40s are pretty expensive they are like i think 80ish a piece so two of those

I had the same setup done minus cutouts and cut bumper done for $420ish. Then I switched to the best possible setup for our V6s with LTs.

they are lying to you or charging a lot for the body work. My setup cut after the cats true duals with flowmaster 40s, a crossover bar, and expensive stainless 3in tips to fit my bumper was 435.

They are either buying a full cat back and modifying it and not doing a custom job, or over charging as all performance shops do

go to a muffler shop have one welded in with a crossover bar (not a prefabbed h-pipe) and itll be much cheaper

Labor really should not be too much over $300. I would cut your own bumper and buy your own mufflers and then just have them install it. I would imagine you would end up somewhere around 500. Thats what it should be around.

^ya cut it yourself, that's what I may do, although I don't want to mess it up. And buy the parts yourself. Look around a lot for a good deal first though.

Ive always wondered if you could use one of those circle sand paper grinder things to make the cutouts lol. Get a cylinder of the right size and grind away.

there is a write up on how to do it, personally I think it looks like crap. you dont get the little lip that gt's have. Save some money and hang them below the bumper

if you take your time it looks fine. And you can get the bumper inserts or a rear valance to touch up the looks.

I still think it looks out of place, it has an unfinished look to it. It doesnt have a finished lip, or rounded edge or anything, so I feel it always looks unfinished. just hanging the pipes below the bumper is cheaper, easier, and looks just as good if not better

Yep, I'd agree with running it under the bumper. I wanted mine like the GT's at first, but I didn't want to cut mine and mess it up. So I'm just waiting for a GT bumper cheap because I kind of need a front and rear bumper paint job anyway.
