.. exhaust systems cost so much for quads?
I can put headers, new pipes and two Flowmasters on my '66 Charger for what it costs to buy a full exhaust system for a quad.

It's not about how much the material/time cost.... :eek: It's about how much someone will pay for it ;)

It is more of a niche than automotive exhaust. You will always get a better deal on things that are produced by the millions. I don’t think LTE, HMF or any of the others are making more than Flowmaster per muffle, percentage wise. It just cost more to produce when they are not getting huge quantity discounts on, labor, parts and materials.

Most automotive ehausts are made with CNC tubing benders and robot welded.
The automotive exhaust companies also get BIG discounts on raw materials because the buy huge amounts of material.
