PDX area OEM exhaust mod

Has anyone in this area had the OEM exhaust mod done and would recommend a shop? I have been quoted by one shop that had experience with it but the price seemed very high compared to what others have paid.

Thanks in advance!

I went to Lab22 in North Portland. John's welding is top-notch and the results speak for themselves.

If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay? I was given one quote however it seemed absurd.

This was a few years back, however I believe it may have been $450? I am having a difficult time recalling.

Hi there from out east. I'm in the process of gathering quotes for this mod as well.

I suggest reaching out to local welders also. It seems requesting a quote for "work on an exhaust" from someone who welds all day doesn't command the same premium as an autoshop would for "modding my M3's muffler."

Good luck with your work!

I attended Portland Cars & Coffee this past, very-rainy, Saturday with the 359M wheels and Pilot Sport Cup 2s; a true pleasure/terror in some instances around standing water (my E88s are being re-worked for a new look.) I was surprised to find a short video of my E92 emerge a couple days back. Here it is--Lab22 modified OE exhaust muffler and a GT4 mid-pipe:



What you may notice is a very grumpy start, the result of the car having been retrofitted with the new BMW Assist and not yet being re-flashed to accommodate the Akra GT4 mid-pipe and thus, throwing emissions codes that negatively impacted the characteristics of engine. I was able to tend to the flash later in the day with input from Mr. Benvo at BPMSport (whom I cannot recommend highly enough for his products, not to mention customer care.)

Good god! Sport cup 2s and any standing water sounds horrifying. I knew I should have gone last weekend! That exhaust sounds perfect!

If you happen to see a Melbourne red E90 with special plates at cars and coffee feel free to stop and say hi.
