Thats pretty high, 1.5 hours is about the norm time wise, labor rate per hour will depend on your area.

Do it yourself. That's what I'm going to do, and it will be my first attempt ever. Get dirty!

I would maybe pay $100 over DIY.... but $300? No way.

This is an easy driveway job if you have the time.

shouldnt be more then $150 for 1.5 hours of labor. i did the downpipe myself with the oem jack and a pair of jack stands from autozone. make sure the car is solid on the jack stands and have at it. will take anywhere from 2 hours to all day depending on how handy you are with a tool box.

no more than 200 bucks including shop fee and all the trimmings. Anymore than that and its bs.

The catback is super easy to do for one. The downpipe doesn't look bad either, but maybe if you were welding a resonator into the mid-pipe for sound tuning i could see around 200ish

it kind of expensive for $300. I would say it should cost about $150 range. I rather do it myself if thats not too hard.

Do it yourself! Pick up a jack or ramps. It took me a while to do mine because we were in a cramped 1 car garage, but the work's not hard by any means.

My shop was going to charge me $50 to do the catback. I just ended up sticking with the stock cbe. $300 is really high.
