Anyone know a decent shop around (crystal lake / algonquin area) that would install my flowmasters. It looks like the going rate that I have received right now is $225. Sounds steep but I could be mistaken. It's either find a shop soon or wait for my buddy to install them in my garage in a month or two. Thanks!

$225 is a rip off!!!

paying 225 is a joke, i would laugh in his face. I think I paid 100 bucks even.

Exhaust Works in Naperville 630-579-9301 - The guy that runs the shop (Parrish) does a great job and is more than fair on his installs. He's done installs on 3 different cars for me. ... $150 for a full catback system this past Saturday. I would imagine he would be in the $100 range for a simple muffler install.
