carx gave me a good laugh today

So i went around and was askin prices on mufflers and stuff to see what itd cost me to get somethin a bit louder on my car... anyway the carx man told me that a single thrush turbo muffler was gonna cost 90 bucks and that 2 thrush mufflers installed was going to run me 250 bucks!!! So i went down the street and asked another muffler shop how much they could get 2 thrush turbos on for and they said 100 bucks. So i went back to carx, told them... and their excuse was somethin like theres only a little bit of space between the muffler and the axle. Being that i installed my exhaust system myself i just laughed at the guy and asked him if hed ever looked under a mustang before. He got mad and said if i didnt like the price i should go somewhere else... so i said ok and walked out. It was pretty funny. I hate when shops try to rip you off cause they think youre a moron. Tisk Tisk carx man

Perks of knowing how to weld, you only pay for materials.

or it helps to know of a shop you can trust to do your work, and be on a first name basis with them. i only payed for parts on the tbirds exhaust, mainly cause the guy was cool and i told him i got nothing else to do if i could help him and watch how he welds. only 200$ for a 2-1-2 2.5" exhaust with 2 40 series flows and 4 tips on the tbird. but the eclipse i had to pay for labor, cause his manager was there this time. it was only like 300 still. the muffler will rape you, especially name brand crap.

dude, dont get thrush turbo mufflers, i doubt they will be much louder than your old exhaust. I had them on the 64 and they were loud b/c that car is loud already, but I dont think they will be loud on your car.
