I will need to opt out as I am not able to find all the exhaust needed for California emissions to get you a good price on them. If another expert can help, they will post in here to you

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

I believe you were very specific, so here is a link below for you to find and price everything you need. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks, Ron

I just added another source for you to check out, this one has several links too for different manufacturers of exhaust systems, just insert what you want.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.

I cannot give you any info without you giving me info. I am not there. you want a price but will not tell me specifics. I need the estimate from the shop and the parts needed. if you will not provide that then I cannot help you

Hi Jack, was there anything else you need from me? I though I gave you some very good sites to visit to get your prices from. I apologize for Roy's being upset. This is why I provided you with the proper sites to get exactly what you need. Let me know, and please remember to rate me for my time:)

Thanks, Ron
