dpends what brand although it sounds way too much

2.5" high flow cat $150 on ebay, then maybe another $80 MAX to fit it. Then take your old cat to FTG auto where they'll give you $40 cash for it

ah ok they are supllying all flanges, cat, gaskets, fitting. so on the rough
2 exhaust gaskets = $15.00 7.50 each
1 hour labour = $80.00
1 x cat = $200.00
1 x 3" flange = $8.00
1x 2.5" flange = $7.00

sound right???

I dunno, that sounds alright to me when it's broken down. I think mine cost the same when i had it professionally done.

Could do it yourself for cheaper ;) I'm a mechanical n00b and even I pulled it off in less than a few hours.

unless you have the time and bending tools, pay the cash

otherwise, learn a new trick
