Is $890 too Expensive for Magnaflow kit w/ Installation

For a camaro ss. Seems too expensive but they already have the kit. The $890 deal includes:

Magnaflow TRU-X Pipe (replaces resonator)
Stainless Pipes
2 Magnaflow Bullet Mufflers
2 Stainless Steel 4.5" Double Wall Tips
Heavy Duty Hangers
Installation Labor

Any suggestions? One reason I don't want Flowmaster is people say it's too loud from inside the car and is annoying when having conversation with people riding in the car.

Is this from Riley's in Houston? I've been looking for exhaust also and this looks similiar to what I've seen them advertised for.

Yes it is from Riley's. They look like they know what they're doing. What exhaust are you wanting?

That actually looks like a good price. I paid 840$ for my magnaflow catback alone, and installed it myself.

Why is it everyone says "dude all you have to spend is $150 - $250 for parts with installation for exhaust at such and such shop?"

I guess they're not talking about Flowmaster or Magnaflow.

All those guys that are telling you that, are telling you to take a chance with a "Custom" setup that you may not like, or recommend you do something borderline ghetto, like a "muffler delete".

My suggestion is to pay the coin for a quality catback if sound matters to you. That setup for that price sounds really good to me though, JMO.

I got my exhaust done from them last year. Quality work, I had flowmasters installed instead of magnaflow.

That doesn't sound too bad to me OP! If it will ease the pain for you,(lol) my 3" top quality system went for 1200! And that didn't include installation!
IMO, get what you want and be happy!! G Luck!

for that price you might as well look for a used cat back exhaust u can't ever beat that quality.... stainless steel.. also if they don't have the bad ass bending machines i forget what there called then even if you do a 3 inch at every bend it goes down to like 2.2 inch... and there aint many shops that use that machine only a hand full... so if there not one of those shops then don't do it there buy a cat back

i got my magna flow cat back for 200$ you just have too look

I'm not sure what exhaust I want yet, I'm leaning towards the Flowmasters. I really don't want it to be loud I just want a deeper tone. I've never heard anything bad about Rileys.

Thats fair since it is a custom setup, parts/labor.
