Help! Custom Fabrication in the Northeast

Hey guys,

Any help on the following would be appreciated.

I recently sold an Encore Innovation exhaust to a member on the boards.
Please note this exhaust only fits the E92. Since this exhaust is out of production there are no optional tips to fit the E90.

The customer was misinformed by a vendor here on the boards and decided to purchase the exhaust knowing these risks.

Long story short, he needs a solution to help solve the issue of the tips being about 2" too long. I recommended a custom fabrication.

Can anyone recommend a fabricator who would be able to come up with a QUALITY solution to custom tips to fit this exhaust? This is a titanium exhaust. Worst case scenario is he can replicate the Encore tips with a shorter length in stainless.

Thoughts?

He's in Connecticut, close to the NY area.
However, honestly, I believe if he used the original tips for the exhaust as a model then he could get this done pretty much anywhere.

Haha that was one suggestion.

Anyone else? There has to be someone who knows of a fabricator in the area!

If you ship them to IND I found a shop here that does custom fabrication. We can make the tips shorter for you so that they will fit on a E90 M.

Wow, they look almost identical to the Vanguard tips. Might want to measure the ID of the connection and see if they are the same as the Vanguard. Vanguard does have a set of e90 tips...
