I know this can be done, but I don't have the tools or an extra pair of hands to help out. I was just wondering if anyone here has gotten them installed for them, how much did you pay? BTW this is the Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust system for the mazda6 i. Thanks.

note: just got a quote of $80

He means INSTALLATION for $80....bright one :bulb:. Are you able to install it yourself? i tought everyone had shops do them, and 80 seems like a good deal to me, just be sure they dont botch it all up.

i personally havent done it, but I plan to, and i dont think it's gonna be so bad.. but without an extra pair of hands that;s gonna suck. I'm gonna have my brother help.

You just need the 2nd person to help you align it (at the very end of the installation process). Other than that, if you have the tools + ramp + WD-40, you can do this yourself.

i agree with jax. 2nd person is only there to help align...unless you have a jackstand, then you don't need anyone else.

i went to my old oil changing station work and went into the pit to do it. i took me about 45 min. by myself. had a buddy that worked there hold it for me so i could tighten everything down without putting strain on the bolts. it's actually pretty simple. the only hard part of the install is getting the old exhaust out of the hangers. but if you use enough WD-40 that's not really a problem.
