Why do you need a new OEM catback? If that flange behind the muffler is rotted, you can have a short sleeve pipe installed in that section for ~$25 at any muffler shop.$870 Parts and labor for a OEM exhaust from the converters to tail pipe. Do you think i could do better price wise somewhere else?

An '04 in Jersey?...You could do this install yourself in about and hour or less and save yourself over $500.
Hafta disagree.They are less $$$. Unfortunately, they're also louder. Some louder than others but all will be somewhat louder.
I agree about waiting for a stock set-up if thats what he wants. after I put my aftermarket magnaflow on, I sold my stock setup for $30 to a local member just to get it out of my shed.I understand everyone jumping on the aftermarket cat back. They are less $$$. Unfortunately, they're also louder. Some louder than others but all will be somewhat louder. Not all of us want that so we're limited mostly to a factory set-up...or very close to it. I agree though that he should look either on here or elsewhere for a factory cat back that someone may just want out of their garage because they upgraded to another cat back.
Yes the newer exhaust is less restrictive. And sounds sweet. No annoying loud noise or drone to deal with. As u might find with sone aftermarket catbacks.. again i got mine used on here for a good deal and it was like new. I hav an 05 that was rusted up took it to shops in area lowest price i got was 90$ to swap them. Not bad. Just search and you will find someone with oem setup. I agree i want to try and protect mine too. So it will last till 2014 when i upgrade to new model T. As long as it looks good. Lol.That's what I had to pay. Never would have done it but I was on a road trip and local dealer had the parts, didn't want to risk melting the wiring that people have had. The new oem muffler has a deeper tone then before for some reason but it sounds really good. I'm going to hit the flange with some high heat paint to keep it from rusting so fast.
