Question about pricing of my exhaust

I recently took my 99 v6 into a custom shop to get the whole stock exhaust ripped out and replace besides the headers.

The receipt says they charged me 1100$
For labor and materials to fabricate and install down pipe dual exhaust system
(Includes 2 magnaflow high flow catalytic converters,
A x pipe,2 magnaflow 11236 performance mufflers, 2
Magnaflow 35116 exhaust tips, exhaust tubing,hangers an related)

They were welded on and everything
Does that sound like a fair price?

I could get that done for about 500 around here but I guess it depends on where you live

Good price great exhaust. The pre-fabed ones are 700 and you put them in yourself

I didn't buy the stuff from the shop. I brought the same Magnaflow mufflers, got an x pipe made. The only difference is the tips and the high flow cats, mine was only 230 for everything except those

I brought in the same exact Magnaflow mufflers. I had an x pipe made, had the pipe, and the hangars. The only difference is I didn't get tips or high flow cats, mine was only $230 without those two things, and I'm sure that doesn't add 270 anyway.

I've found multiple of them for 100 each. So that'd be 200 plus $50 tips. So I wasn't too far off

Ebay 150%+ mark up. Walmart 200%+ mark up.Most businesses mark up 300%. 400% if you are at a top of the crust place.+45-65 $ per hour labor.
What could you make a cup of Starbucks coffee for?
