hey guys im lookin for a muffler shop around the norther VA area....i have a leak in my exhaust where my the manifold goes into the midpipe. My GTS manifold wouldnt fit into the GT midpipe. I want to make my flange bigger so it will fit into the manifold. Tryin to save money from customizin a 300 hi-flo cat exhaust. I talk to the guy at Meineke and he said its abt $70 for him to make the flange bigger. I think its a rip off cuz one of the guy here (RickClarke) did the swap and had the same problem too, and had the the shop make him a bigger flange so it will fit but he said he only paid $20 for it.....so anyone know any place that can help me cuz i hate the leak sound and im losin power from it too... thanx

I don't mean to hi-jack your thread, but speaking of exhaust shops, is there any decent/reputable place in the Baltimore/DC area that can do a custom mandrel bent exhaust?

an hour PLUS the part is WAAAAYYYYY more than $20. Most repair shops charge $60/hour, so add that to the $10 part, and $70 seems just fine.

cheapskate. :chuckles:

You should also note that richclarke lives in Texas I think. Things are ALOT cheaper in Texas. You can live like a king there on my salary, but here you can barely get a ****ty apartment.
