Hey guys I just got a quote today for a 2 1/2 inch red back From the headers with a new muffler (I think) With an oval angle commodore tip .

For $430 , He said the noise would sit on 88 db to 91 and said id still give you a certificate saying that the noise is legal .

I was wondering if that is a good price or is there any better i could do ?

Yea that doesn't sound too bad . How bad can the rattle be , Because i wouldn't want to pay for something that's going to drive me nuts every time i use the car

And another thing the exhaust was $350 , But he said the tip was $80 I've seen tips at super cheap for about 20 to 30 bux . ??

All depends on the type. Look on ebay. Had a bolt on kit for a VT wagon. It rattled on idle.. Knocking on the body. Light acceleration you could hear it rattle too. Hard Accelerating, didnt hear a thing (prob due to the note). I stand by Caloundra Exhaust. I have dealt with him loads of times. Its about 30 to 40mins from you. Give him a call and get a price. 54916035. He does excellent work.

With his help im managing to do a complete exhaust system, extrators, custom y piece, high flow cat, cat back and a shinny tip for under a grand.
