Recommend shop for test pipes install in Seattle

So when I bought my car it already had a full Active Autowerkes exhaust installed which is a little too loud for me.

I've now managed to source an OEM x-pipe with the primary cats already cut off, and then a pair of Macht Schnell test pipes.

Does anybody have recommendations for where to go for the install? I was going to take it to a local muffler shop which had great reviews everywhere but then dropped by today and the shop's been emptied out!

Group2 is local to me so I may take it to them. Just seeing if anybody else has good recommendations for exhaust work.

Thanks in advance!

Muffler Man in Centralia can do it for cheap. I was quoted $75 for an xpipe install. Most places won't say they'll do it if you call and ask. Bring the test pipes with you and ask them in person.

Alternatively, Tork Motorsport will do it I've heard Ron1n

Garage List
You just need a reciprocating saw with a metal blade to cut the xpipe, and then clamp on the test pipes.

Since most shops won't touch this time of work due to laws, if you're even mildly handy with tools you can rent a lift at stews self service garage in kirkland for like $40 an hour
