My Hometown area exhaust shops...

Been to 3 shops today just to check out prices for the weekend exhaust work, 2 of the 3 said the only thing they can do is weld some flowmasters on? They said theres 2 outlets going into 1 pipe then back out, they said its a bad design on ford and that is the only performance thing i can do to the bird to make it loud. Hell I had flowmasters welded on my old bird and it sounded stock still. So what should i take in to google to get a actuall good shop in my area i type in muffler shop and all 3 of them was garbage.

look for any place that does exhaust work... I had a horrible time finding a shop as well. Taking a picture with you of a bird with true duels when you go seems to help. Ask people you know where they got theirs done. My boss last summer told me about a guy who did custom auto work. As it turns out, the guy did a great job bending the pipes, and was listed in the phone book as a tow shop. Ask around and take pictures with you, thats my best advice

This one's a bit of a drive but if you live in the Western part of North Carolina, South Carolina or north Georgia they might be a good choice; they do amazing work. I plan on having them do my exhaust when I'm ready.

KevinM had true duals put on his car at Troy's Muffler shop in Anderson, SC.

They have a really cool website too. Check it out HERE oh, and turn your speakers on and up there's some really cool music on their home page!

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

If they say they can't do it, then they are not good enough. lol

Just find a shop willing to work with you.

True duals FTW!

Woot i got the exhaust! THanks for the pics the guy first said hell no then i showed him and he did it. Thing is i had to use flow master cause he didnt have magnaflows in stock and he didnt want to fabricate a X pipe cause he could order one for 30 bucks but beggars cant be choosy especially one who never has any days off.

Often exhaust shops are the last place that will touch your converters, as they know they are being monitored much more closely. A chassis shop ended up doing mine since they deal with pipes and welding.

Kevins setup looks sweet. I am ordering two spun hi-flow cats and a magnaflow di/do muffler. I plan to take a pic of Kevins and have them run the pipes the same way.
