Muffler + Install Price
 
What is a good price for an 18" Magnaflow muffler + the weld in with stainless pipe? This is just welding the muffler in - no resonator deletes or anything extra.

I got a quote for $210 for the magnaflow muffler installed. Is that reasonable? Seems a little high but maybe its just me being cheap.

I paid around 220$ for flowmaster 40 welded in so i say its reasonable

Did you make sure they were going to use Stainless Tubing? If so $200 is a good price. I did a WHOLE lot of calling around. places in my town were charging 240-270 for the Maggy 18" installed Aluminum tubing. (nothing wrong with the aluminum)

Found a great shop 35 miles away, who did it for 158 out the door.

Ask what their labor charge is, and whats is the price of the muffler. My Bill showed:

Magnaflow 18" #12278 - $100.00
Labor + taxes - $58.00

It's just you being [a little] cheap.

If they're doing what you claim, then that's a fair price.

It's not great, but fair nonetheless.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes it is stainless pipe they are using. I typically underestimate labor charges on everything so it is no surprise. What can I say, I am cheap. :)

I feel better about this option now that I know I'm not getting my head ripped off.

Thanks again.

I don't know the price of stainless because I use reg exhaust pipe. I had a 6 In body muffler installed for 40 bucks, I supplied the muffler. Last trip was for my Silverado and again, I had the muffler and the added about 2 ft of pipe and 2 turndowns welded on for 30, and it was better work too!!

I was quoted $100 to weld in my new Borla muffler! I'm in MN.
