Arrow Recommend a muffler-exhaust shop near Mont. Co/Fred. Co/Balt. Co/NoVa?

I have a Magnaflow 12468 that I need to have installed into my Kooks x/mid-pipe. Kurtis has apparently left MBS. Let me know if you are aware of any quality performance exhaust shops in the area.

Thanks!

The kooks too loud for you as is? Have you tried putting your stock axle backs back on?

thanks all...

Steve, it's not the axle backs... check out the 27 page thread here:

http://forum.***********/showthread.php?t=19971

oops. insert 'the other forum' in the asterick area!

or Jim's here: https://www.g8board.com/forums/showth...ighlight=12468

or search '12468'

the factory system had a similar mid-muffler... guess the GM Holden engineers were on to something! from everything i've read (Patrick G's tests), the 12468 should solve my problem and not change a thing with my HP/Tq.

I understand but the gxp axlebacks are pretty good at killing drone too. I would try that before spending money

I tried Tony's a few times over the years but they always came up with an excuse as to why they couldn't do what I wanted done. Marvins however was always able to do what Tony couldn't.

I had Borla axel backs that needed to be cut and then have flanges added and Tony's said it would be $250. I asked around and Terry (Jackalope) suggested Marvins. Rolled over there, told him what I wanted, and $80 and 30 mins later I was out!

Imports...making a 10 second pass is like coming out of the closet. You might surprise a lot of people, but in the end your still gay.

Can't forget the "LOL" or people will think you're an a**hole
