    Default Exhaust Shop Recommendation

    I have a 2010 hatchback 2.5 that needs exhaust work. I was to told to replace the mid pipe including catalytic (one piece) is just under $1000. Is there any significantly cheaper options? Any shop recommendations?

    I just used JPG exhaust last month.
    I replaced the mid cat with a high flow cat (i used the a Yonaka cat https://www.yonaka.com/category_s/390.htm)
    The flanges were usable so they cut out the old mid cat and welded on new yonaka.
    (under $250 for labour and shop parts cant remember exactly maybe less plus new cat).
    I was actually told by shop that the mid cat doesnt really do much and you could go just pipe
    and that should not set off your secondary O2 sensor since its sampling before the mid pipe
    and exhaust note will get a bit louder (with or without a performance exhaust) and your exhaust flow
    will increase and get a few more HP....(maybe 2 or 3 HP)

    I've been to plenty over the years including JPG. No complaints about them but the best I've been to is likely Zorro Muffler in Mississauga. https://zoromuffler.com/index.htm
    2007 White MazdaSpeed 6 -> 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP -> 2016 Mustang GT

    Son has a 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv with Corksport catted exhaust.

    Went to JPG today. Friendly and honest. Significantly cheaper alternative to Midas.

    I wouldn't let Midas touch my car if they were the last shop in the world.
