I'd be interested as well. I have no cats + stock rear and it sounds not too bad.

I went to Extreme Performance in the SE and they said they could do it.

He asked that I bring in the photos from the Forum to show him what I wanted done.

I couldn't get a price because he didn't know how much time it would take

Not sure if I'd dick around with a "performance shop" as you'll pay accordingly. Find somebody who can tig weld and the job should be done for less than $300. The mod shouldn't take any more than 2 hours, even with removal and re-installation.

Interested in this too. That rate from sheni is ridiculous, let us know what motorwerkes say my buddy owns the shop so I'm hoping it's not too bad and if it is I'll have a word!

Just talked to them and they said they usually just install after market exhaust, but asked me to send an email with the details. Just sent the email too, Waiting for their reply.

That sucks. I think many places don't understand the demand for this job in Calgary, if one guy can do it he'll make a pretty penny without a doubt. Now we should just keep looking.

Yeah definitely avoid Sheni's. Motorwerkes is good, so is Vitek. But honestly, I'd go to Apollo Muffler (chain) and just get it done there. It's basic welding skills that are required.

By the way, that's where Sheni sends your car if you need exhaust work done.

Apollo cant do it. Unlimited performance can do it though. They charge 100/hour. I need to make an appointment with them, the earliest available time is next thursday. Let me know if anyone else is interested to do this mod.

How many hours are we looking at to get it done..

I just saw this, http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=10784727

Now if I go ahead and get the OEM exhaust mod done, its gonna be this one rather than the general one we are used to seeing.

Anyone find a place to do this? I think I have a place lined up but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up so once my cold has gone away I'll go and see what they say.. I'll let them know AT LEAST 5 people want it done to see what kind of price we can work out. Shouldn't be all that expensive to be honest.

Let us know please. Unlimited Performance can do it but I have been super busy at work (till end of this month hopefully), so havent had a chance to go visit them.

Sound only. Most systems only gain power when the primary cats are removed.
