Default Looking for a good exhaust shop

I'm going to get an exhaust for my G37 finally. I called Pro Muffler and got a quote for a custom catback but I would like to get some others as well. Any other good shops in the Phoenix area?

Do you have a budget? What do you want it made out of? Mandrel bent?

I can probably snag you a Tanabe or something name brand if you're interested Chase.

Well the shop quoted me 550 for a catback with Magnaflow mufflers.

Here is what a full Magnaflow catback sounds like. I know the custom wont sound the same but it should be similar.

I highly recommend Apache Muffler in Mesa. I had them weld on my new OBX muffler and resonator onto my eBay exhaust on the Sentra. Did great work and it only cost me $60!

Mighty Muf'ler (on Cave Creek Rd. between Peoria and Dunlap) I used to take all my vehicles to Greg (Owner) when I lived there. He always gave me a better price than any other shop and he has been doing it for years. He uses quality materials, welds are perfect, and does exactly what you want done. He's probably done about 6 of my cars without any hassle or issues and always for the best price. He's also really quick on the turn around time. You can either by a muffler from him or bring your own. Good luck.

Judging by the photos on the interweb the factory exhaust goes straight into the muffler, you need someone to make new pipes that curve to the sides of the new muffler.

Not all shops have a good mandrel bender, but you can have the pieces made from pre bent pipes.

My buddy has a dirt cheap little mexican shop that we use and I think they have a mandrel bender. I'll text him in a little bit to find out.

Wades discount muffler and brake on main east of Val vista. Got my custom dual exhaust for lGt there last week and I love it. Wade is a professional and perfectionist. Does amazing work and knows what he is doing. He will listened to what I wanted and made a recommendation, it was spot on.

Wade looks to be a high quality dude, in and out of the shop
