Anyone know of a good exhaust shop around the suburbs of Chicago, IL? I need a 3 inch diameter, 90 degree bend, 304 stainless steel preferably mandrel bent pipe and everywhere I've called doesn't have them. Even JC Whitney doesn't...I'm at a loss! Anybody have any good ideas?

Several good companys online that sell those. Go to the Hookermax flow threads and several are listed. Summit has them also.

If you want a local shop give Exhaust Works a call. I take my car to the Montgomery location, good guys over there.

What are you having done to your exhaust that would require tig welding?
Good luck on your search I guess.

My x pipe I got off ebay was stainless and I specifically requested for them to use stainless piping when they installed it, which they did.
On the tig welding, unless you're doing a manifold or a turbo downpipe I really dont see how that would effect flow or quality. I have no leaks for over a year.

Any other recommendations for shops, more specifically in the south suburbs (Oak Lawn area?) Just trying to get my x pipe installed in place of the mid muffler and the local mom and pop shop is quoting me 290 dollars because of how much work is involved

You might want to post this in the regional section. Unless you want advice from those outside your state too.
