Post Universal Muffler installation cost?

Hey Guys,

Just wondering how much it would cost to install a universal muffler kit at a place like midas or some other muffler shop. Any recommendations on where to get this done?

Thanks,

Terry

Cool

that depends on how much work they have to do...i know a guy who bought in a univeral muffler for a Integra and it doesn't fit at all...and we have to custom fit...that charges more....
but we are charging about $50 or so for a normal one....

Hi Terry,

I ended up buying a universal muffler as well. I had it installed at Speedy in Kelowna for $135 plus taxes, including 2.25" piping, aluminized, catback system. He put in a resonator and added the tip as well. (I bought both before hand, so they don't count in the price). I had a quote of $228 from another shop for stainless. The guy was recommended and was really good at the install.

Wow, good deal for a full catback. You think all Speedys are that cheap? Is there a set price they charge? or did you get a deal? How long did they take? Oh yeah, and what universal muffler did you end up getting? Let me know, and thanks for the info.

I don't know if its the same price at all speedy's. This specific guy was recommended by a local speedshop, (where I bought a tip and resonator), and I just drove over to Speedy after that, on the chance they could do it before I had to work after lunch. It took him about an hour or just less than that. I bought the muffler, Borla part no. 40652, from a distributer in Vancouver. They were clearing them out, $150, regular $255.

hi terry sorry don't reply you for a long time because my computer is down for a while.
the that you ask me. it was about 550 when it was new it was a cat-back system for a 180sx.
i guess you get the 5zigen Universal Fireball already but i could get a cheaper price for you but you already get it that too bad.
