Anybody know a shop on LI or in queens that would do a catback install at a reasonable price? And what is a reasonable price? lol

Well, that narrows it down . . . hahahaha

I have a trusted local garage that I go to first before heading over to a specialist. If you have a TLG, have you tried them first?

I don't have one but I asked a shop and they said $200. I don't know if that's what most places charge.

If you check around a few shops and muffler places, you'll get a good idea of what the going rate is.

I suspect the job takes about 30 minutes on a lift with proper tools, maybe 60 if there is difficulty getting the old pieces off. At $100/hour labor (yes, I have seen this on LI), that's $50 to $100 for the install.

I did the catback on my MINI in a couple of hours, and that was on the ground with the car on jack stands, and it was my first time doing it on that car. A pro, with a lift, tools, and experience, should take a lot less time.

If a catback is more difficult an install than on a MINI Cooper, then it will be more expensive.

I've installed and removed axlebacks on a couple of my Civics. 20 minutes out and in. And the rest of the exhaust is not complicated.

Has anyone done one on a Civic that can give an idea of how long it takes?

I installed my Cat-back exhaust on jack stands in my driveway in under an hour from gathering the tools and jacking it up, to it back on the ground

If you plan on doing it yourself I suggest getting it done before te cold weather rolls in, I'd be glad to help with the install

Hey what's going on guys? I'm interested in joining your club if you are accepting new members. I live in Bethpage, NY and I own a 2015 Civic Si. I just have a couple of questions first, what do you guys do in this club? And is there any illegal activity such as street racing? I don't care if you guys do that, I just cant be around it.
Thanks,

-Mike

Hahaha totally! I think it's a great idea and we should try to get this thing off the ground! It would be nice to see what people are doing with Civic's in our area specifically and hangout with our rides
