Anyone have any experience with their shops? I know they're all individually owned but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with them, especially if its the Worcester shop.

Any opinion would be great!

:cheers:

There shop.on the north shore doesn't mandrel bend exhaust so the pipe that goes over axel shrink when bent. Buy a Magnaflow or other aftermarket exhaust that is mandrel bent and have them install it.? Hope this helps

Lou's custom exhaust eh i dont personally have expirence with them but i feel like they are the jiffy lube of exhaust places. check out coastal customs in salisbury. Tony and Chris are the owners and are brothers and will hook you up with whatever you need.

where are you located? i wonder if i have seen you around before.

if your looking for work and dont mind driven a few minutes Jamies Performance Muffler Shop in Pawtucket RI does great work, ive been to several Lou's and his work is miles above theirs.. very professional and high quality he does ALL of the custom exhaust work for my shop as well as roll cages and custom fab.

Im in westboro. Its my first car but i bought it from a guy in Weymouth for 2500. It needs paint work but I go to school for auto body so I can save a lot of money on paint and materials.

The reason I ask about exhaust is because mine is leaking out the side and to be honest sounds like shit. I'm always down for a trip to Salisbury so I'll look into that shop.

As for seeing me...I'm not registering it until I paint it so you haven't seen me drive it but it wouldn't surprise me if you have seen a teenager driving a red lt1 camaro :eyes:

Yeah I had them do some exhaust on one of my other camaros. Not too bad but it isn't stainless so it will rust. Other than that the piping was madrel bent. I used the one in brockton before they really went to hell

This is a franchise, so skills and abilities aren't the same accross locations.

I have found that some are complete whack and the one in Plymouth is pretty good.

I've looked over two systems that came out of the Worcester shop (both on SUV's) and they looked like hack jobs to be honest... I would bring anything to them based off what I saw.

For the past ten years I've been trying to put together a list of local skilled shops... the list never gets past 1, always crossing shops off said list.

I had a real good experience with the shop in Manchester, NH.

I have had a very poor experience with the shop in Nashua, NH.

Just one person's perspective.

I had a fantastic experience at the Pawtucket location. The guy asked several times if I was happy with how it was run before welding over his tacks. Mine was already run over the axle and dumped so they just finished from there back but he fixed some of the previous work (not done by his shop) and ran my duals which he spent time to make sure they were perfectly spaced. I would recommend the Pawtucket location to anybody.

I'd buy a catback and call it a day.

That's what's I would do. Just buy longtubes, a y pipe and a catback.

the LOU'S in NORTH READING MA was the original one my father grew up with the owner but ever since they've gotten bigger quality has gone out the window last time i used them they did the True Duals on my truck came out like shit IMO.

I had the same experiences at both.
