OEM exhaust mod - Edmonton

I looking to get the OEM exhaust mod done. Any ideas which other shops in Edmonton can or willing to do this?

I have checked with Altas Custom Exh. on 99th and 50 ave, they said no they cant.

Will check with Alberta custom exhaust on 50 St tmrw, so stopped by today after work to check and see if they could do it. Brought in a print out with images of what needed to be done. They said it is possible to replace the perforations with new pipe, however welding the muffler back up could be a problem. Also, they kept pushing having aftermarket exhaust (ie. flowmaster, magnaflow...ummm, not!) and the cost would be the same as oem mod, and it may not be the sound I am looking for...

Grrr, I kept insisting to do the OEM mod, but they said they would have to look.

Ugh, to me it seems straight forward to do this mod - I have the tools to cut it open, but unfortunately don't know how to weld, and many who have done this mod, it seems the place taht did it for them seem opened to try for the customer...

Ugh my search continues...

Any others? Thx!

Having mine done by a friend who welds. I'll ask him if he's interested to do another once mine is done.

Once yours is done, can we do a side comparison? OEM sound vs OEM Mod sound...been watch video's on the forum, but it just isn't the same as hearing it in person...

Oh that would be awesome if he could! Thanks Apecush in advance for asking!
