J pipe, Helmoltz mod muffler shop, Fort Worth

Anyone have a muffler shop in Fort Worth that can hook me up.
The DRONE is driving me crazy!

Also I meant Helmholtz mod.

Any shop should be able to do it. Make sure you get the length needed for your frequency based off the RPM you experience the drone. Someone made a chart on here if you search it should show up.

Thanks, I VERY familiar with what I need and how it needs to be done. Just wanted to see if there is a shop around here that everyone is using.

Give House of Hotrods in Mansfield a call. They did mine when no one else would. It is hard to find a shop that will do real custom welding.

Got it done at Phil's muffler here on Main St, Fort Worth. Took almost 3 hours of fabricating and cutting. Unfortunately he said he didn't want to tackle anymore unless the price was going to be around $400 instead of the $175 he charged me. Just too much work and he turned away about 5 customers while he was doing the job.
Fortunately for me, I'm almost completely drone free. Can't wait to adjust on the caps a little to see if I can tweak it done to NOTHING!!!
Thanks for the help and suggestions.
Michael.
