went to AAA exhausts today and got a quote for my ba xt for pacemaker comps, 2 1/2 high flow cat and 2 1/2 redback catback. All up is about $1300 fitted. just want to find out if this is a fair price and what other people recommend or have done to there own.

sounds fair to me. go to d & t it will be more like $2300. why not go see mark at exhaust technology. not the cheapest but the best by far imo.

Yeah, but you have genie headers, you get what you pay for.

Pacemaker comps are nice headers.

1300 is a pretty decent price.

Yeh thats a decent price considering your getting comps. Mr Muffler would charge about $2,000 for that setup.

Holy crap did you get those in stainless? Cat back is worth $300 fitted and the cat converter you can pick up for $200...

I get what I pay for? WTF?

I got the comp genies which retail for over $800... I got them cheap because I got bought them trade from the supplier...

They are basically the same diameter & length Herrod Motorsport use for their BA's. I measured up my mates BA, and went from there...

Goes to show how much of a dumass I am :?

I have a stock XR6T exhaust system here, but shipping might be bit of a b**ch to Vic and it would need a bit of custom work on the manifold side of things.

what type of tips have people got on there ba xt's and im not to sure whether to cut the rear bumper and get a twin tip or get a dump at the back so i dont have to cut the bumper, but the dump tip might get scraped alot because my car is lowered.

has anyone got pictures of ba xt's with exhaust tips?
