OMGHi2U Looking for an awesome exhaust fab shop in the SE Texas area

I have a 95 impreza with a good bit of drivetrain work, but the aftermarket larger exhaust systems don't always fit well.

The SR*S SE catback fit pretty well but I wanted something quieter with the same pipe diameter and bought a Q300. Both are for the 02-07 wrx, but the Invidia didn't fit worth a damn and the exhaust shop murdered it to barely fit. :/

Since the Invidia is just barely quieter than the SR*S was, I'd like to use some of the 3" stainless piping and resonators from my two exhaust plus whatever else is needed to fab one that fits the car like it should. There is plenty of room for clearance front to back, but the more pricey Invidia basically sucked for my old car.

If there is a shop that:

-Does excellent fab work with stainless, with pipe in stock
-Doesn't jerk you around and waste time
-Can provide some picture proof of their work
-Is confident but not overly prideful
-Has experience with Subarus and knows their layout

...I'd appreciate a referral. One was mentioned to me a while back, and they deal with a lot of Subarus, but they didn't seem interested in any extra work / maybe the idea of messing with an older Subaru wasn't worthwhile to them. They didn't seem confident in their ability and wouldn't provide any pics of their work, and I don't have the time to drive 150+ miles just to let them check the underbody and decide whether or not they can do the work.


Thanks for any help

Well if you come to the NW, https://www.kozmicmotorsports.com/
can make beautiful exhaust. Now the only issue is that it is billed by the hour and might get a bit expensive. We arent a mom and pop muffler shop, the craftmanship here is excellent.

Yep, still haven't found one. Bump for SE Texas legit stainless exhaust fab shops with legit picture proof. I'm willing to make the drive if the work I see in the pictures looks good, close weld pics appreciated. Thanks

oooooh... About that... Looks like I'm having to take an emergency trip to Thailand in about 10 minutes. Shame I won't be available any time ever again!
