Default Custom Exhaust Shop Needed in GR

I am looking for a shop in the Grand Rapids area that does GOOD Custom Exhaust Bending. Someone that has been doing it for along time and still enjoys the art of a custom exhaust. I don't want some snot nosed kid that gets paid 8 bucks an hour at Tuffy to slam something together.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!
Darrin

I had a new tail pipe made for the deisel last week, didn't charge me to much and he even welded it vs just clamping it on. Seemed like he'd been doing it a very long time. But my only expeirence was just my tailpipe. It was at Tuffy (). The one in Cascade where 28th street dead ends on the east side.

I went to muffler man on chicago dr. in hudsonville and had the run duals on a couple of different trucks and they did an awsome job. all of the welds were perfect and so were the bends. so then i tried muffler man on division between 54th and 44th to have my mufffler switched out and they did a hack job,when i went to pick it up and was pulling out of the driveway my driveshaft was hitting my muffler so they put it on the lift and staerted prying it over and fuked everythin else up. so not all mufflermans are the same.

I personally like G&M express here in Holland. When I used to have money I took my trucks there to get my duals done, did a great job for a decent price. Nice owner too.

Yes, G&M is a great place to go. I know it may look like a hole in the wall but they beat everyone's rates and they do very nice work. I've now been there 3 times to have exhaust systems done.

I have heard good things about a place in Grand Haven, Sandviper recommends them.

I have also heard good stuff about exhaust special t's in Muskegon. I may be needing some duals ran soon, and am in the same boat.

Good luck finding somebody on the west side with a mandrel bender. Buy the pipe and some mandrel 180's and take it to a shop.

Great, Thanks for the suggestions. I think I will try the Muffler Man on Chicago Drive, They are the closest to me.

It is not even a real hard job, It is a 82 VW Rabbit Diesel Pickup that I just installed a 1.9 AAZ Turbo Diesel Motor in it. I a have an aftermarket SS Down pipe on it and want to go 2,1/2 straight pipe all of the way out the back with no muffler. I just want it done right,..

Hope to have it ready to go on a couple of days.
