Magnaflow Muffler and custom exhaust tubing

I've recently been considering getting a magnaflow muffler (it's a universal with sqared tips...looks damn nice) and getting an exhaust shop to make me custom exhaust tubing from the cat to the muffler.

Has anyone done anything similar? Does anyone know how much an exhaust shop might charge me to make the tubing? I've heard magnaflow mufflers sound good, and being a struggling college student price IS a factor. I figure this would be the best setup for my money, but I'm open to any comments/criticism. Thanks for any help!!

BTW: I drive a 1998, hopefully u can figure out which model...

I did that to my F150 last fall. The muffler sounds great and was cheap. What cost a lot was having the shop custom bend the pipe. Go to a couple shops and ask how much they will charge...

yeah, I figured getting custom bent pipes would be the most expensive part...Thanks for the help

Would a catback system be significantly louder than if I went with just the muffler (left the pipes stock)? or would the two sound similar? Thanks for help

If it's sound you want, I'd say just swap out the muffler leave the stock pipes. If you got a magnaflow cat-back, it wouldn't be too much different. Just a lot more $$$$. I like mine, quite at idle and while driving, loud when I punch it. I know yours will sound different. Here is a pic of what I got & a short video.



This is probably the closest they have to your car. Magnaflow

If I were to do it again, I'd just swap out the muffler.

Hey guys,

I know that this is a bit of an old post, but I would like to ask how much exactly did it cost you to have that magnaflow?

I have a F150 too and I would very much appreciate for any replies I would receive.

Thanks a lot.

Muffler should be around a 100 bucks; piping and welding work is probably gonna set you back another 250ish ... I'm just guessing though, I've never had anything of that nature done.

when i did it under the table for my integra it was $200, it was under the table because they "accidentally" left out the cat.
