Default Good Edmonton Muffler Shop

Like the title says, I'm looking for a great muffler shop to install a resonator in my downpipe. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions.

thanks in advance,
Claude

ABC muffler and hitch has had alot of good references.

Why are you putting a resonator in your DP?

Gold rush has the same turbo back as me and he put on in and said it toned it down by like 20% and made it more deep. So instead of changing exhaust I decided it will be a cheap attempt to quiet down my car.

wouldnt it be easier to put the resonator in the mid pipe and not the DP?

I was thinking about putting a resonator on my mid pipe, does it tone down the sound quite a bit?

Err... sorry for the hijack Claude,

ABC on the south side are the folks that built my custom catback for my old RS. They do nice work, as the owner has a race car that he plays with. He deals with all Magnaflow products and/or you can go aluminized metal or SS.

Claude, he'll have Magna flow resontators for 3" piping, so it will simply be a cut & weld operation. You could even go dual resonators if you wish.
