Good Prices?

went to a tuner shop and he told me he could get me the FC tb for 249 (normally 279) and a magnaflow cb for 309 (normally 329). THey also said that they wont cut any labor costs. Are they trien to rip me off. does anyone know what thes parts go for at cost?

tuner shops are notorious for gauging prices, so my guess is he didnt know what he was talkin about.

Well not all that bad but not the best but maybe the best he could do, if they dont sell a great amount they might be like a second middle man and up the price another shop might sell it for. Not everyone is trying to screw you but they have to make a profit. Labor is what sucks but you really only need them for the exhaust anyway, but a muffler shop that does labor at 36 to 50 bucks an hour may come out cheaper paying for the hour than for the job. Just make sure they arent slacking off on the job a god exhaust shop should be able to put it in under an hour.
