Default Looking for a good exhaust shop

Hey guys, for starters I'm in the ft.lauderdale area. I'm trying to get a 3 inch mandrel bend y-pipe made for my 98 z28. Just looking for a good shop around this area that can handle the job and won't break the bank. Any suggestions?

Mad Hatter is a good shop but i don't believe they mandrel bend
If you just need a basic Ypipe i highly recommend Texas speeds Y, stainless and it's really nicely built
If not try hitting up lashway and see if they can do it for you

We're one of only a few shops that have the mandrel bender. Call us when you're ready.

I hear a lot of great things from you guys, I'm going to see if I can just bring the car by you guys so you can take a look. I was thinking of going with the TSP y-pipe but every time I look at the driver side header, it honestly looks like it would not clear the floor panel unless if I modify the header or y-pipe. That's why I figured instead of spending 150-200 on a TSP y-pipe and then whatever on top to make it fit, I'll just have one custom made for the car. I'll see if I can get a picture for you guys later.

i wouldn't recommend the new TSP y-pipe. we put one on my friends car, then took it right back off and threw it away. Their new design fits like garbage so we went back to a pacesetter lol. Although the new pacesetters are built like ****, too. He had to do some porting at the merge because it was overlapped by over 1 1/2"...only took a couple minutes though

Thank you! We do our best.

We've installed numberous Y pipes over the years, one being TSP's unit. It is made of several pipes that fit together. It's good and bad. Good in that you can adjust the crap out of it, bad in that you have more room for leaks and stuff like that down the road.

You cannot beat the fit and finish of a custom, mandrel bent y pipe.

I will do my best to Keep cost down, but cheap and good do not mix here at Lashway.

Shoot me a pic or come by and we can chat!
