Default Straight Pipe - am I getting ripped off?

Hey, I took my 2000 Civic SiR in today to have a dealership look at a
squeaking sound when i first take off. Thought it was going to be just a
heat shield (which I have had in the past) but turns out they tell me that
there is a baffel in the straight pipe loose and that I need to replace the
straight pipe at a cost of $526 Cad. Is this a good or bad price? Seems
really high for just a pipe that runs from the Cat to my muffler.... with
resignator included I suppose.

thanks

IMHO, the price seems right. When I was looking for aftermarket parts
from a name brand for my 2000 Civic EX, it came out to be $1600-$2000
for the exhaust, pipe, cat converter and headers.

So considering your model is a SiR and you're buying a Genuine Honda
pipe from the dealership, the price seems right.

The items you buy from the dealership will be high quality but expensive.
If you want a better deal, visit several shops in your town that sell
mufflers and get estimates. Before you sign the papers, check the quality
of pipes to make sure they measure up to your expectations.

http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com lists the B Pipe for a 2000 Civic Si for
$138. They don't list an SiR in their model choices. I don't know if the B
Pipe for an Si will fit an SiR. You may want to give them a call. I should
also note that their web site has been recently updated and isn't displaying
the correct diagram for this parts category which is something else you
might want to mention to them if you do call.

diagram. whoops. The SiR in Canada is the same as the Si in the US.
