    I'm not sure about muffler prices, but I paid around $180 for 3.5" dual pipes from the mufflers back, then some 4"x15" tips, with installation.

    $250 bucks dauled out with 2.5" w/packs at my shop. Dosent do you much good not being in WA but thats a price to look for. If you get charged more its to much. IMO /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Befor you do a exhaust system, you might want to check what your local laws are about mufflers. Glasspacks (Cherrybombs) are not leagle in some states. I used to catch tickets for some "Purple Horny's" (Glasspack style) header mufflers on my old Camaro when I lived in Omaha, Ne. But they were perfectly leagle right acrost the river in Council Bluff's, Ia. .

    I run dual 2.5's w/ glass packs. I don't really like the way it sounds, but that doesn't matter because I recently found out that glass packs are illegal on the trails around here because they don't have any spark arresting capabilities. So, mine will be getting mufflers pretty quick. CHEAP CHEAP MUFFLERS....then when I can afford it all the exhaust will come off and it will get a single 3" thru a muffler of some kind... I have heard that the Edelbrock mufflers sound really good. I don't really want a Flowmaster just because everybody and their brother has one.
