Cost me $275 just to add the flowmaster 44s, leaving the resonators on
did you get the super 40 or reg 40? is there really much diff between the two? on the flowmaster website it seems to be a bit deeper sound on the supersHey that is a a bit high, I would go somewhere else. I was also in socal when I had the exact same thing done. 40s and resonator delete. I paid 250 at my local exhaust shop. It really is less than an hours work for a professional and the pipe and mufflers are pretty cheap. Hope this helps!
-PS sounds great with the 40s and no resonators. You wont be disappointed!
Yes, it is very close in price compared with some of the prices I had seen for the American Thunder exhaust.so after talking to a few muffler shops, each one makes it seem like its rocket science to put these mufflers on, hence the prices im getting. are flowmasters a challenge to do right? cuz if so i can see how they justify their prices..if im gonna shell out $500 thats approaching full system pricing on the cheaper end of full systems.no?
Dude that's crazy, Im from Redlands originally. I just moved to Texas last November. I went to:im in the riverside/san bernardino area
I'm so cal...I paid about 400 cash to have mine done...ok so i decided to go with flowmaster 40 series mufflers and delete the resonators. local shops are quoting me $400-$500 for the work above, out the door price. sounds like alot. im hearing people talking about having paid $250'ish for getting flowmasters put in. does 400-500 sounds too high???im in southern california....thanks
PS...its not just replacing the mufflers, thats the easy part.so after talking to a few muffler shops, each one makes it seem like its rocket science to put these mufflers on, hence the prices im getting. are flowmasters a challenge to do right? cuz if so i can see how they justify their prices..if im gonna shell out $500 thats approaching full system pricing on the cheaper end of full systems.no?
I'm in the same area and just got a super 40 flowmaster put in my new truck yesterday for $150 out the door at Rubidoux Smog and Muffler. Of course it will be a little more on your Challenger, but I guarantee it wont be $500 and the guys there are gear heads with some sweet classic muscle cars. It's worth a call.im in the riverside/san bernardino area
wanna hear crazier? i just moved to east highland from redlands! lived there practically all my life. small world! anyhow yea i did call redlands muffler and the guy was so laid back he worried me. when i asked what the difference was between the 40 and 44 he said its all the same...guy was just super short like the kind that has been doing it so long that hes tired of answering questions you know...i asked his name and he told me he was the owner. they have done work for me in the past but just got a weird vibe from the guy. scottys in berdoo wanted $500!!! as a last resort called j&m speed in riverside and recommended a shop and they sounded very knowledgeable so i went there, paid $350:thumbsup:Dude that's crazy, Im from Redlands originally.

I think its close to a year ago now or maybe a little less I took my car in and had flowmaster 40s put on and had the resonators cut out and replaced with strait pipe. They already had everything for the mod there ready, they do great work and I have had absolutely zero problems with it.The guy did it in like 2 hours and I think i paid either $250 or $300 cash out the door. I would just go in ready to have it done if you are serious and talk to them about it. They will work with you and are flexible on price especially if you pay in cash. Hope this helps man.
really is a small world. i live up off of alta vista, if you know where thats at. i think i expected the 44's to be louder, guys at the shop are saying they need to break in. not sure how true that is. i thout drone was what you got at top gear speeds, ie on the freeway. i get the "drone" anytime the rpms go thru the 1900-2100 range no matter what gear it goes thru even if i use auto stick...THAT kinda drives me up the wall. i may add some glass packs. i could prolly live with it if it sounds good on the outside. gess ill have to have someone drive my car so i can listen to it.Wow man, I lived in east highland off weaver for 10 years, moved to Redlands for 3 and now I'm here in Texas. No smog checks here! Glad you found a place. How do you like the sound?
if you are refering to the drone well i would rather do without it. i beleve that is what most people call it. i have heard some describe it as a moan...the sounds doesnt have that beautiful sound it makes when you step on it, like a gargling, i dont know ... im waiting to see if it really does "break in"... holding off on the glasspacks till theni'm itching to put 44's on mine. I have time, space, a chop saw and a welder, I was gonna do it myself. is it really that bad?
