Pypes Pipe Bomb, I'm guessing? How much does the person want for em? Since it's a straight-through AB, not too much they could have messed up unless they're beat to hell.

That's not bad then. New they're $300. Check em out in person and if everything doesn't look dinged up or bent, should be square.

Correction he wants $130 for them hope he is not firm on the price, as for the flowmaster, that's out of my budget right now..

It's a good price and they look to be in really good shape! They will be broken-in already too, so they will sound super loud and mean. I have them and love them, for the price of $130 that is awesome!!! The Flowmasters to me sound like poopy-poop, I would not get them, they sound like there are rocks pinging around your exhaust on de-cel. For $130 and the good condition they are in, I would snatch those up!

Aint this a ***** turns out these axle backs are still up for sale too I have to wait for pay day to get them. I was reading up on these and was told that it has alignment issues when installed, those anybody have experience in stalling these, because I rather save some money than to pay someone to do it and how hard it is to install and axle back on a 2014 ?

I just got mine done by Bill's Muffler not even 10 minutes ago. Alignment issues, you better expect them. The over axle pipes and mufflers will not line up. The drivers side stuck out more and was off center, but the pipe alignment was good. The passenger side was center but improper pipe alignment. All in all, it was all ate up. I tried to ghetto rig them with utility wire to try and keep them center but, just take them to a muffler shop and have them do it. Only costed me $100, and problem solved, but the sound is incredible, only reason why I didn't nix em and put stock back on.

Try and install them yourself, not all mufflers are the same. I've heard of people having no issues whatsoever but only few people. Installment is easy once you get the stock mufflers off, those were a b****. Play around with them, loosen your mid pipe as well, and having an extra set of hands definitely helps.

I had major alignment issues with my Pypes and had to have them installed. Only ran me $100 but worth it since I was not comfortable doing that sort of work in my backyard without the proper tools.

I love mine. They are great. I will be switching to the Borla S-types soon however, not because I don't like the Pypes, but because they are in my budget now. Good quality product, unbeatable for the price. I really couldn't ask for more out of them or be happier.

There is a break-in period of about 200-500 miles however. They will sound a lot deeper and meaner after the break-in period. They still sound great when they first go in, definitely much improved over stock and I guarantee they will bring a huge smile to your face.

The ones I'm getting should be already broken in so that's a plus.

Even better! You will love them. As I said, I love mine, I've just always coveted the Borla S-types. I get compliments on my exhaust almost daily!

It's super easy. If they won't line up for install though you're not going to have a fun time.

$100 for an axle back?! Jeeze. I paid $60 for my catback to be installed because I was feeling lazy.

That being said, it's easy to install. It helps if you have hanger pliers, but definitely not a requirement. that's about the hardest part is wrestling the hangers loose.

$100 because it had to be put into shape and welded. Tried it myself, it was way too off, right tip was almost scraping the ground, and the hangers were nowhere near the car. The problem with Pypes is that they can be very uneven and have to be played with and put into shape, and if you don't have the right tools it's impossible

No the Pypes just come like that sometimes. The good thing about mine that I'm selling are that they are already put into shape lol, good for whoever gets 'em, not for me .

He paid $60 for his catback, but it my have needed no work on it at all to go in and could have taken 30/45 minutes. You should try it yourself, it's super easy and FREE. If it doesn't go in, then take it to a place. You should not be paying more than $100, I paid $100 because it needed a lot of work done, about an hour and a half, it was in pretty bad shape when it came and I didn't want to wait to send it back and get a new one. I am on Long Island and things are a lot more expensive here as well, so take that into account.

Grabber is correct here, mine just went straight in. I had a race exhaust shop out by our track in Oklahoma do it for me. Norman Performance Exhaust.

It took about an hour since I got there early and didn't have any cars ahead of me. Since they are a Mom and Pop shop, they're more flexible with how much they charge. It didn't take them long at all, so they didn't charge me much.

Some shops will have a minimum labor fee which they will charge regardless, just depends.

So I am going to try and install this axle back myself so I put some WD40 on the car so by 2moro after work it should loosen up. I notice something but the muffler pic is below. Are these going to be an issue when removing muffler ?
