Ummm, you do realize how close ACM is to you, right??

I drove from Philly to get mine done there. Not as many shops are willing to do it it seems. Good luck.

I got mine done at Flushing Iron Weld..they are metal fabricators and welders..brought the stainless steel pipe and muffler to them and walked them through how to do it..

The quotes I got from some auto performance shops including ACM were ridculous...so this was a nice plan B

You consider 500$ to be ridiculous?

$500 to cut the exhaust open and weld some pipes?

I had it done at Import Cars of Stamford and it sounds great. Cost me $500 also which I found steep since it was pretty much labor which you pay for.

You won't regret it!

Don't matter where you go, just make sure the guys doing it actually know what they're doing.
