price for a dynomax exhaust

Is $345 a fair price for this dynomax kit or should I shop around? http://www.car-stuff.com/performance...e=83&category=

I've seen people say anywhere from $350-800 for bending and install, but I don't really want to spend $1000 (total) for an exhaust. Is there anything that sounds good and doesn't restrict flow for less than $600 total?

Don't know all that much about exhaust systems, yet, but I want to learn so I can get some rumble to the bird.

Jegs is around $225.

FYI - the Dynomax kit will help with flow, but the gain in sound in minimal.

Jack, what do you suggest? I've heard good stuff about the dynomax, but not so good stuff about flowmasters.

I'd like borlas, but they're kind of out of my price range.

cut out the third cat and put in a dual in/single out magnaflow, then chop off the stock mufflers and put some tips on it. check on the exhaust sounds page for a bunch of clips.

I don't have any proof, but I would be almost certain that the Dynomax catback easily outflows the Flowmaster kit.
I actually like the Dynomax kit for a simple bolt on car. I had it on my first bolt on '97 T-bird and the car ran great. I didn't want my T-bird to sound like a Mustang, I just wanted it to have some more power. Now, my car didn't exactly sound stock because the front part of the exhuast consisted of Kook's headers running into offroad 2.5" downtubes that went into a 2 to 1 Magnaflow resonator. My car ran mid 14's with the mentioned exhast, U/D pulleys, bigger MAF with K&N, and a chip. Stock gears, TC, and everything else. It's also hard to beat the price on the Dynomax kit.

FordFanatic's idea is a decent cheap setup that will help with sound and flow, but I would replace the stock exhaust tubing with something that flows a little better.

This is exactly what I did but I do have custom down tubes, hi-Flow cats and the pipe left over from my dynomax cat back. The muffler guy sawed the tips off the dynomaxs and welded them to some autozone pipe.

Tony, what'd that cost you (hardware plus install)?

The Dynomax or Flowmaster catback won't give you any more flow over stock. They don't replace the restrictive downtubes or resonator. I have the Dynomax mufflers with my true dual setup minus cats and really like their sound. Here's a clip:
