Help with exhaust install? Boston, MA

Hey guys, I just picked up a MXP Comp RS catback and was wondering if anybody local who has a jack + stands is willing to help me. My local shops have been asking a lot for the install. Thanks in advance

How much are they asking? For $80 you can get craftsman stuff and do it yourself
You could also buy a shovel and dig a hole in a field. Drive your car over it and stand in the hole!!!

I've gotten quotes between $150-200! Sounds like a lot when there's only a few bolts holding the system on

It's unfortunate, but they prey on those who don't have the tools themselves. if you have storage space for a couple jackstands and a jack, I'd go to Harbor Freight, Sears, or Home Depot to purchase a jack stand / floor jack combo. Sears and harbor freight have awesome deals in store for this stuff.

I suggest you call around some more. For example, the guys at my local shop only charge me $35 to switch mine out -

I suggest you wheel into some muffler shops on a weekday, find a shop that isn't busy and offer them $50 to swap out your muffler.

Bubby (my buddy) says to use your car jack, jack the car up, support it with a few cement blocks and wrench the old one off and install the new one - a two beer job.

This is much easier than digging a hole -

I drive an asphalt FRS, I think I've seen you around town a few times in the past few weeks. You have the silver BRZ with gold wheels and SARD wing right?
