How Much Does Putting on an Exhaust Cost?

I a have an appointment at the only exhaust place in Bismarck tomorrow early in the morning. The shop itself is little and looks like a small business. I don't want to get burned on the price since I am already a poor college student. He never gave me an estimate so I'm wondering how long and how much you'd say it would cost putting this exhaust on? I heard good reviews of this exhaust, but the guy working said a lot of exhausts ppl bring in dont actually fit with the car. True or False? Thanks in advance!

Just be sure you give yourself plenty of time and lots of space to hurl your tools across the garage in frustration. You'll likely need air tools, a torch and a sawzall just to get the dang stock exhaust off. Once it's down the rest writes itself. Good luck!

Pffft, I hacked it off with a sawzall, jacked it up...did the catback in like an hour.

It's easy.

If you don't have a cutting wheel or sawzall, find someone that does or rent one. That way you're getting your money back and you're only out a few bucks for a blade/wheels.

Don't take it anywhere...you'll only get raped, 99.45% of the time.

Took mine to the shop on the base with a friend of mine off here and sawed the old off and put the new one on.. I do say it will be much easier if you have a lift though. .

Yeh that's what I like about working on base, the auto hobby shop is litteraly 1/4 mile from my work, and I go there on my lunch probably once a week.
Access to air tools, lifts, tire changer, everything you could ask for.
You can even store your car overnight for 4 bucks.

Catback bolt on took me of 25 min total, from old to new. The sawzall at the axleback location was the more time consuming while bolts got some coating of WD-40.
