I can't imagine any muffler shop doing the job cheaper than buying a kit and installing it yourself. I'm not terribly mechanically inclined and I installed mine all by my lonesome in about 2 and a half hours, and I spend an hour cussing at the downpipe clamp.

The downpipe is the hardest part... if you want to just buy a downpipe and go from there that'd save you the biggest problem LOL.

you might have trouble finding someone who can bend that size pipe, I use think the same thing and found the most anyone could bend in my aeria is 3 inches. go for a brand made kit. Alot easier and a better fit.

I agree with everyone else... buy a basic AL kit that is pre bent and pre designed for your year and install it yourself.... hardest part for me is taking out the old exhaust... but just take your saw zaw to it and cut it into pieces and pull it out.... let me know if i can help you out in any way
