I need to replace some parts of my exhaust (pre-muffler and the pipe
connecting to the muffler).
I'd like to do it for under $300, if that is possible. Before I start
calling around and getting rough estimates, I'd like some more
How should I proceed with this repair:
After going here and looking at the exhaust:
(prices are way to high and I don't want the pre-muffler)
1) I'm looking for an after market company that makes an exhaust for
my Sephia. I can bolt on the exhaust myself and I do have a friend
that can weld.
2) Should I go to a shop that makes it on the spot ($ 300 budget).
The CAT is still good, so with the amount of rust after CAT, I'm will
to just get a CAT back system.
I'm not really looking for performance gains...but if some can be had,
at little or no extra cost that is fine.
I have to pass an emissions inspection and safety in Virginia, this
car will pass with flying colors, after the work is done.
Please, no comments about just junking the car, let's stay on topic,
and that topic is to help me...thanks. I may just as well sell it
after the repairs anyway.
This is not my only car, so I'm in no big hurry to repair it (I can
wait for parts to me mailed, etc, if need be).
Thanks for your replies (post it here please)
