i wasnt talking about you. i meant $1700 was ridiculous.I was just giving ideas...on what was out there. I wouldn't pay new for anything.
if you plan to trade it in i wouldnt worry much with it. i would suggest you just leave it as it is if it isnt excessively noisy. if its a must for replacing though maybe you can find a factory exhaust setup in a junk yard somewhere around you like a pick n pull or pull a part. very few people around here are going to have factory exhaust components to sell and honestly putting aftermarket parts on the car will do nothing but hurt the trade in value.I need the system from exhaust manifold all the way threw. My daughters boyfriend had the exhaust welded in a bunch of spots now this is like unrepair able. even had cat and down pipe welded. Its broken in several places so my thought is to replace it cheap as she plans to trade car in June.
