1988 300E exhaust system replacement

I need to replace my catalytic converter on my 300E (it has a crack). The car is formerly an east coast car so the exhaust system has some rust and I figure it may be worth it just to replace the entire exhaust system. Has anyone purchased the complete 300E exhaust system from timevalve.com? They quote a complete system with mufflers, pipes, and cat for around 800 bucks, does this sound reasonable?

Thanks

I have read many posts of guys here recommending cats from timevalve.com.

I did a search on timevalve, and there are lots of threads.

Here is one:

Exhaust from Adsit or TimeValve?

That sounds very reasonable, especially for Stainless.

You may have already thought of this, but if the only problem with the cat is a crack, it would be far cheaper to have it repaired at a welding shop than to replace the whole assembly.

You know, that is a good price.

I had completely forgotten, but I had to replace my cat and exhaust a year ago. It comes in one long piece.

My mechanic installed an aftermarket unit, and it was around $900 for the part, extra for installation.
