Default $$$ for custom muffler pipe? how much?

I was wondering.. since i have never done a custom exhaust.. do they or can they, the muffler shops, do stainless steel? or do they pretty much just do the galvanized steel? OR, is there any other particular metal that they would use?

All those Q's and the "how much did/does it cost"?

I am thinking about finding an Apex midpipe (because i used to have one, and loved the quality) and ordering a weld on muffler that looks like a "factoryish" muffler... and just getting a good quality pipe made between the mid and muffler section. I just have this longing to be "different"

I got mine custom midpipe done at Meinekie (sp?) They did an ok job. Not to pleased with it but it is ok for now. They way overcharged me. I would rather have gone to some privately owned muffler shop. It's made from galvanized steel and it does sound pingy. I will be looking soon to change it with a stromung midpipe.

Good luck with it Remeber to find a reputable place.

For something like that probably between $50-100, not including the cost of the muffler.

Cat back exhaust with aluminized, not stainless pipe and a Magnaflow muffler $200 installed. Done by the local muffler shop, fits like a glove.

I got mine done [from after the flange (axle) to the muffler I used] to be $55. The shop used galvanized steel (1 week of salt with the steel = no sign of rust), and they let me watch the sparks and walk around under the car. Find a dependable, independant shop that specializes in customized exhaust bending. They'll weld on exhaust hangers for you also.

Magnaflow's website had a searchable list of shops around the country that installed their stuff. I would think most of those could do a quality job on custom exhaust since that's what Magnaflows are.

Well, i just ordered the rear muffler.. real rally looking.. spintech single inlet (2 1/4) to dual rear outlets (2 1/4 each). I dont really care if it looks different.. i love the way it looks. Plus, its very different in its design with the way it flows and such. It is just the muffler itself... so now, all i need to do is get a midpipe, like a stromung stainless, then get a muffler shop to make a pipe that connects the midpipe to the muffler. I was thinking maybe having one that will have a flange on the muffler end, so i can possibly interchange easily.

I've got custom 2 1/2" throughout with APEXi N1 on the end and the muffler shop told me that stainless wasn't ultimately worth it due to costs to manipulate and order in. The cost to create my custom underside was at about $500 (including flex coupling) and I wouldn't regret it ever. Nice growl, good acceleration. In US funds that would less than $300, more than worth it.

Its MS, but I'll cut you a good deal if you're interested. Its been on the car a year, and there is no rust at all in it or on the outside of it. I just had the car up a few weeks ago to install Kartboy Hangers, and it still looks like when I bought it It would probably cost nearly as much to have it modified to fit the MRT, so I'm just going to go with their unresonated midpipe.

Yes, it is 2.25 inch.. That sounds fine, Thats the time frame that I expect to get my Headers, hopefully I'll order them Tuesday. I may go pick them up in Boulder if they have any in stock. I can hardly wait

yeah same here!.. I used to have an apex n1 cat back.. which i didnt want.. the shop i ordered from some how screwed up.. but i was too lazy to get em to fix it.. but i liked the sound though. Then midpipe was excellent, however. I am just excited to be getting something again, and different at that. I have to be honest.. i do want a ss midpipe, and cant gaurantee that i wont buy a new or used ss, before i buy yours.. just wanted to let ya know that

No hard feelings if you dont Someone may need it on here. If not, it will be useful if I have to change the car to OEM for emissions. I doubt I'll have to do that since I'll be looking for an emissions buddy after I get the $$$ for some spicy cams.
