I recently did mine as my CAT melted internally and my muffler was rusted out. I went to Midas and they fitted a stock replacement CAT and a flow master 44 (knock off). All in all cost me $564. Also got a card for a free oil change. Best of all is the CAT and muffler both have lifetime replacement warranties. If replacement is needed I only have to pay the labor costs. It is a little louder than stock but nothing crazy. I have a 98 2.5 liter.I have an exhaust leak and feel like the exhaust needs a complete system replacement. My question to you all is, Did you just go to the muffler shop or did you custom order? What were your reasons for doing one or the other?
thanks in advance,
