Re: Expensive muffler

I just got a Cat back exhaust from a place called Mantis Racing in 
Oakville, Ont. They put in a 2-1/4 inch performance exhaust into my '85 
5kcdt for a grand total of $290 installed (taxes extra). I had the exact 
same thing that happened to you happen to me. This place was by far the 
cheapest place I could find, but the exhaust seems of good quality. I can 
really feel the difference over the stock exhaust that was on before and 
so I recommend them as a place to go. The shop seemed very clean and they 
were very professional, no "hidden" cost or other problems. They are also 
a Bosch authorized service centre, which is good for us Audi folk. Since 
you seem to be from Ontario, I recommend you give them a shout. Their 
number is (905)-844-6219.
