Get a tune from American Muscle that will help you pass emissions.I would not sell the car. I would move before I would sell the car. Thats just me though.

mods add nothing to a car at resale time, esp to a dealer, you'd be better off selling it on Ebay or maybe here
I'm not sure why an h pipe with hi flow cats wouldn't get you through emissions unless there are more issues at stake

You should share the emissions readings that the test generated so we can see where you have issues. For example, some of the issues could be fixed with swapping on a better catalytic converter and/or running an emissions friendly tune depending on what tested values are over the legal limit.

First what exhaust do you have? Do you have cats? Are the oxygen sensors turned on in your tune? The car should pass emissions if you have cats and the oxygen sensors are turned on. If you dont have cats add them then have another tuner make you a new tune with them turned on.
Also I would not go back to that shop $2000 to install a full exhaust seems really steep unless he custom fabricated the whole thing.

First piece of free advice: try to learn to speak/write in complete sentences, it will improve people's impression of you and also make it easier to understand what you are saying/asking.

Next answer the questions that the other guys asked so they can help you.

By "full exhaust" I am guessing you mean off-road mid-pipe with no catalytic converters; if so, that would be the problem. Replacing that with one with high flow cats will cost some bucks, but $2,000 is very high -- that's what I would expect to pay for a complete system installed with headers and the mid-pipes with the high flow cats.

Wow, that's quite a crappy spot to be in. I would take it somewhere else and have them re-tune the car and provide you with a tune for emissions. If you take it to the right place, the whole thing will cost maybe 300-500, but you'll never have to worry about it again. Sounds like the shop you're dealing with is just being unreasonable.

Then again, if you're currently running without catalytic converters, maybe that's where the $700 charge was? Purchasing and installing a catted x-pipe plus inspection fees?

Hopefully you can clear that up a little...

Please tell us exactly what exhaust setup your guy put on, we'd like to know.

Oh, FYI: Carmax is the last place I'd ever sell a car like that. If I were you, I'd only sell to Carmax out of desperation, like if you needed money today or something.

The only advice I can give to anyone with these ^ literary skills, is SELL THE POOR CAR. Sorry, but you make Mustang owners look like dolts.

get a set of hi-flow cats installed and that will allow you to pass emissions for as long as you own the car, i'm guessing you lack cats right now.

And everyone, i am disappointed in you slightly. Not everyone speaks perfect english
