Turner quotes 6500. Yes, this includes software but I don't think it
includes installation. If they are charging over 2k for software that's
I agree, the pricing on headers for our car is outrageous. I'm not sure
we'll see a 1k alternative anytime soon. That's not to say you
couldn't find a shop to do the same job. I wouldn't know how much
they would charge you in this case. Either way you still are effectively
modifying your own headers. You wouldn't have a untouched
replacement without ordering them from somewhere. Maybe
you could buy someone's headers?
I personally recommend buying aftermarket headers and keeping
your stock headers. If you have to swap out you'll need to pay for
the 10-15hr (or 15-20 for SS headers) install again. With the
RPi solution the idea is to reduce the install costs by just
"re-inserting" your cats without having to pull out the headers.
