I paid 6k for mine with 95000 miles on it. No rust and mechanically upkept. I change my oil every 5000 miles and coolant every ten. The duratecs are tough but mine lacks an rpm gauge.:(

I would jot recommend the resonator delete. It sounds like shit in the end. Just get an actual exhaust for the car and you will be much happier. My YouTube account is kjrwhs2003. I have plenty of exhaust clips of my custom exhaust I had made for the car on there. Do video comparisons also to every exhaust setup for your car that you can find so you know what you want exactly.
