Alright I got an email from the guy and here is what he said "Yes sir we do magnaflow cat back exhaust. We custom make ours and use magnaflow mufflers. A single exhaust starts at $235 for your car. $300 will get the best we have with a stainless tip and everything"

I don't know if that price is for single tip or double tip.

o.O

Ask if its stainless steel and rig (tig must be feeling like a chinese today haha) welded if its not I wouldn't get it might will rust and aluminized in my eye isn't as good especially if in a place where salt is used.. I'm in Cali I I won't touch aluminized sounds tinny to me

They make their own pipes and weld on 1 or two mufflers for that price. Chances are its crush bent aluminized tubing to keep the price down with only a stainless tip included at the $300 level rather than the actual mandrel bent magnaflow cat back exhaust kit that would cost more than this to purchase.

Okay, thanks for the info, I will surely ask that and I don't want rust for a cheap price. I should asked for stainless not aluminum right?

Regarding aluminum or stainless, it depends how long you plan to keep the car imo. Aluminum will probably last 5 or so years before it'll need replacing/repairs. Stainless will outlive the car. Being that you live in NC, you might be able to get away with aluminum. However, I'd go with mandrel bent pipe. I turned down a similar offer from a local exhaust shop that would have fabricated something up for me with compression bent SS and a random magnaflow muffler and tip. I didn't do this because I wanted mandrel bending, and I didn't know what the muffler would sound like. It wasn't worth the risk in sound alone.

Mine is just the sedan version. Exactly the same except for the length of straight pipe under the middle of the car (the sedan is a few inches longer than the hatchback).
