Called PSI, it is definitely something they can do, but their fab dept is swamped. Likely 5-6 weeks out. I think Iím going to have Rhom Innovations do the work. I've heard good things about them.

I'm not surprised they're backed up. The main fabricator (can't remember his name) produces welds that a work of art. Cleanest work I've ever seen.

They're an authorized installer for UGR's Gallardo TT kits. So they definitely know their stuff. Walking through their shop is car porn, assuming you ignore the drift cars. Haha
See you guys there! Maybe the next gathering can be at PSI, I've been looking for an excuse to visit them

I'd be down to meet up at PSI some time. They always seem to have some interesting cars in their shop.

You'll love it. Its a little more docile from inside the car. But its the best bang for the buck mod to make it sound better. I'll definitely add an x-pipe at some point because I still want it to be a bit louder.

Here is a quick/crappy shot of it in the garage. I'll bring it to cars and coffee one of these days.

Thanks. I'd love to see a pic of your supra. Or even better, see it in person one day.

I'm planning to bring it out of storage this summer. It sat all last summer because I was so busy. I'm making it a point to get it out and stretch its legs this year. We'll definitely have to hit up cars & coffee again with the "other" cars. Haha

Quick update, I've been driving around with the modified exhaust for about a week now and I LOVE IT! Sound is not obnoxious and does not drone, just a bit louder/more aggressive sounding. I would highly recommend it to anyone on the fence.

What was the total cost and which method did you use? How many shop hours did it take?

Very satisfied. As far as I can tell Rhom did an excellent job. They delivered the car on time and were very professional.

I called multiple shops to see who would be willing to do the work and obtain estimates. It was surprisingly difficult to find a place (other than a generic exhaust shop) to do the work. I got quotes from $350 to over $500. So there is a range depending on where you go. Rhom was on the lower end of that spectrum and their work product is outstanding.
