Question Hey Houston- recommendations where to have exhaust work done

I am going to be getting an exhaust setup sometime soon, probably just a catback, but I'm seriously considering turboback. Who knows a good reputable place in Houston (southwest side preferable) to have work done on a WRX? I'd try it myself, but I'd rather have the piece of mind knowing a pro did it right.

Help?

If I can put on a tight catback, you can too (Orion, please feel free to chime in).

You may have a problem finding a professional to put in a catless turbo back.

Talk to Chris, service manager. Not a problem at all..

Also, reasonably priced.

Exhausts are incredibly easy to install assuming they're a quality piece. There have been some exhaust parts that are notorious for their poor fitment.

I'd rather have the piece of mind knowing I can change pieces out if I need to. I'm by no means a certified mechanic, but I'm tool savvy enough to not bother paying for bolt-on pipes.

Only thing I would pay for is UP. It can be a PITA if you don't have the right tools, or new hardware. Re-using the OEM hardware (nuts & bolts) is NOT a good idea.

Edit: if Jeff can do it, any 3rd grader can. he can barely use skinny crayons and he pulled off a cat-back install!

Ok, I may be a nerd, dork actuary but I can turn a wrench here and there:

1) catback install
2) BOV install
3) unichip install
4) SS install
5) I change my own oil (and kill what I eat)
6) 12 handicap



7) downpipe/ic hose install (next week)
