I reckon this is a bit over the top but you guys can tell me anyhow. I got a full exhaust system priced up for my EL XR8.
Pacemaker headers $1050
Hi flow straight through cats $380 EACH!!!
3" mild steel exhaust including twin tip $450
or
3" stainless steel exhaust including twin tip $650

So all up that would be $2260 for mild steel or $2460 for stainless.

F**k considering it costs under $1000 for a straight 6. I know there is more material and two cats etc but s**t, 2 1/2 times more than a straight 6?

What would be a fair price for a system for a V8?

I payed $550 for pacemaker extractors on ebay and $120 for install, $200 each for 2 magnaflow hi flow 2.5'' cats and $400 for the rest of the twin 2.5'' system (mild steel) all installed. then $200 for 2.5'' stainless steel single system and $40 for stainless dump pipe all installed!
So $1510 all up and it sounds sweet! I reakon over 2000g is too much, especially 1000 for extractors.

Headers are over priced Tim. Should cost less than that just for the headers.

Pete,
3" magna flow cats should cost you about $300 each (I got mine for $280 for both :P )
Headers (pacies) were $600 IIRC
So you are getting ripped with those quotes.

I probably would pay the extra $200 for the stainless exhaust

I agree with everyone here, so far.
Around $600 for the Headers, plus labour.
The cats can vary so much in price, but if they're stinging you $1,000 for the Headers, they're probably ripping into you for the cats too.
Locally here, you could get a full exhaust with tip for around $400, in mild steel.

cats shouldnt come in more than $300ea. and thats for richie riches! go with an ebay set of paceys, find a good zorst shop who will fit em dirt cheap, save a couple hundred easy.. as for the 3" that sounds fair. the twin tips emselves can be $100 or so sometimes..

I'm gonna wait for an exhaust. I'd rather spend $2200 on the engine than the exhaust. Its already got ELGT headers and a 3" exhaust.

I spent 1650 on my exhaust all up, but thats because i run the larger 4-1 comp pacemakers. It would have been 1400-1500 if i had of used the more common tri-y paceys....

$900 for Pacemaker 4-1 Comps (fitted)
$300 for two 2.5" XForce cats (fitted)
$450 for Lukey 3" cat back

Mick Webb (who's expensive) charges $1800 for a full exhaust, with HM headers. Stainless to the cats and mild steel from the cats back... Includes tip.

I have been getting quotes around brisbane and I have had a few for $1250 for pacemaker headers and 2.5" twin system but use the current cats. Also had one for $1450 one for $2000 and one for $2500 so i guess u just gotta shop around.

F@rk! I got two quotes for my V8, both are unfitted and include freight. Difillipo $2100 for stainless headers & cats then mild steel, or $2700 for full stainless. Herrods, $2300 for stainless headers and cats and mild steel. I think that both these prices are rediculous considering I have to pay someone to fit them but I want a decent exhaust so I would pay it....has anyone received similar prices from these companies?
