$75.00 hr.

I have a local muffler shop that says he will install a 3" dp w/cat/muff delete for $75.00 hr. and I furnish the parts. Anyone know how long that should take in a well run muffler shop?. I know the flat dp is somestims tough to install. Thanks.

i would say just install it yourself... i can get you a great deal on a straight piped exhaust that has a 3" dp for easy install...

If they know what they are doing it could be over in a couple hours. If not, it could take a while. See if they can give you a maximum.

I hate paying by the hour. In my line of work, people ask what I charge per hour. I tell them I can't give an hourly rate because I may do something faster than some or slower than others. I give a job total, that way if something goes wrong and it takes me longer to do the job than planned, I can only blame myself.

It took me quite a while to do it on my SD but I had a little run in with my gooseneck hitch. On the obs do you have to cut the flange on the firewall to get a 3" to fit? Even at that it shouldn't take but a couple of hours.

We took an f-450 to a local muffler shop, they cut the cat and muffler off and welded straight pipes back in the place of each. Total time was about hour and flat rate cost was $80 and they furnished the pipe. I think I would ask for a flat rate price to do all and would probably let them have it for less than $100 total with me furnishing just the DP.
