Default Hey Chicago guys, I need a good exhaust shop!!

Any suggestions? I live on the NW side, and I know about Iggy's, but I've heard some bad things about them and they're kind of expensive...so I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Really? Was it a reliable source? If not, I HIGHLY doubt that. I've been to Iggy's for a lot of work a so have many of my friends. They do nothing but top quality work, IMO. You get what you pay for. Want it done cheap? Expect it to break.

I highly recommend Iggy's.

I got a great exhaust system on my T/A at High Performance Associates in Wacounda, IL. at a very reasonable price. No complaints at all on their work. I think their web site is hpaparts.com if I recall. Give'em a try...

Thanks for all the replies guys. I had just heard some shady things about Iggy's from a few friends. I think I'm going to go with either FLP or LS1Speed for my exhaust.

Thanks again everyone!

Our Chicago area sponsors can install catbacks, but try FLP for custom exhaust ideas like dual exhaust.

Im on the NW side too, listen go to Valasquez and Sons muffler shop on belmont and elston! It may look shitty but its the BEST! They do ls1's all the time, they customize everything for you and its cheap too.
