Custom exhaust shops near high desert / so cal

I am in need of a custom exhaust shop, seems the ones in the high desert here that claim to be custom/advanced/hot rod exhaust shops are stretching the truth a bit. 2 of the 3 in my area that claim to be do not even work with stainless exhaust.

The work that I am looking to have done is have my current cutouts (DMH) removed and my new noweeds cutouts installed. Due to the way my exhaust is routed and the O2 sensor location of my aftermarket cat back exhaust I need some custom work done. I have 3" stainless steel exhaust from the cat back.

Does anybody know of any good shops that handle this kind of work?

Advanced performance
Off C street and Main Street, it's about two blocks up on the left, they build high end hot rods and do some amazing custom exhaust!

He even custom made and TIG welded the exhaust on my 94z "because he was bored" guys do GREAT work. Lots of magazine cars come out of that shop and you wouldn't even know it from the looks of it.

I will contact rogers exhaust shop in fontana and see if I have better luck.

Advanced performance turned down the work, he wanted nothing to do with the car or the work. Sorry, the guy was a D*** and even to the point of insulting my wife.

Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at advanced, they can be a$$holes there but it's only because he's got plenty of work.

That being said, Rogers will definitely take care of you and not be rude I promise!!! They do great custom work.

No shop has a REAL mandrel bender, only one shop in Santa Ana has one to my knowledge, but that IS considered a mandrel bender because it doesent kink the pipes.

Sparky and Roger did hook me up, great job, fast service and a very reasonable price. I will recommend them to anybody looking for an exhaust shop.

Rogers Exhaust Shop in Fontana made mine roar back toys life!! They are great guys, very knowledgable, professional and have a cool waiting room so you can play pool while you wait. Roger is a great guy and a straight shooter. You won't get ripped off.

I may have to go to Rogers Exhaust Shop in Fontana to get my headers put on, and adjust my exhaust to keep from rubbing my tunnel brace. Even though it's 45 mins away from me. I'm hearing good reviews and the drive just maybe worth it.
