Installing bolt on X-Pipe and Muffler

Wondering how much I should pay to install an X-Pipe and muffler. Bolt ons and no welding required. Contacted and went to a few shops and they are quoting me anywhere from $300-$480 to take off my stock x pipe/muffler and install aftermarket ones. Thanks!

It will take them about 2 hours and is easy work.

Also depends on the system. Some of the cheaper aftermarket systems need some tweaking to fit, and will add a little bit to the cost. 2-3 hours shop labor.

Buy new gaskets for the midpipe to header connections. Shop might not stock them and your originals may break upon removal.

Good point. Most independent shops won't carry those parts or know where to get them unless they keep your car while they order them in. Bringing all of the parts you might need for the job will help streamline the job and get you a better finished product.
