Labor charge knowledge needed. Which exhaust method is cheaper?
Hey folks, another exhaust question thats pretty straight forward. Which of these two methods to convert a v6 dual exhaust would be cheaper (including labor charges ie. how long it would take to fabricate etc.)
1. Buying a catback exhaust for a 87-93 GT ($370) and giving to the exhaust shop to fabricate an H-pipe and bolt everything on.
2. Buying 2 mufflers ($160) and the tail pipes ($150)= $310 and having the exhaust shop fabricate more "stuff" as well as create pipes that connect muffler to mid pipe as well as create the midpipe itself.
Basically: Are catbacks cheaper than buying the components themself when you factor in labor/fabrication work required? The catback is $370. The mufflers+tailpies= $310 but that doesn't include the pipes that extend off then mufflers (here's a picture of what i mean...these are from the catback) http://images.americanmuscle.com/is/image/Turn5/18405_alt7?$thumb_68x51$
