How much would it cost to replace an exhaust pipe?

Yes, it is way too high for just a pipe. Should be $150 to $200 at most, but in the ballpark for a catalyst and muffler.

Did you need a new catalyst converter and muffler? Or just pipe?

Customer reply replied 13 years ago

The guy said just a pipe, because there is a crack in it from whom ever last fixed it. They had put a clamp on it too tight so now its leaking.
