Default Good shop for exhaust install in Chicagoland?

Hey Chicagoland members,
Just trying to get an idea. Where can I get a catback put on? I don't want to fiddle around with jacking the car up - rather let someone put it on a lift (speaking of which, I need to order some jacking pads correct? I shouldn't put my new vette on a lift without some?)

I'm entertaining getting Borla stingers or Corsa pace car system. I'd like to actually hear them in person though.

Modding temptation is tough! I know I should save since I will propose this spring to my gf of 5 yrs!

Thanks,
Ron

Thanks,

Do yourself a favor and hook up with a few people and listen to a few systems in person before you dump that 800+ dollars on a cat-back. I would not use sound clips either they are because you cannot hear what they sound like from inside the car..lot's of folks do not like interior resonance. I have the SLP Loudmouths,,,most do not like this cat-back as it is too loud. But it took my 3 tries to find what I liked

HP Performance in Mundelien is top-notch I hear.

You could also go to B&R Auto care in Mundelien I personally know the owner of the shop and the other Mechanic is my best friend. If you go to B&R ask for John or Rob tell them Frank sent you.

Good luck

Thanks all. I would definitely like to hear them in person. I'll wait til it gets warm out - maybe at Augustino's since it is close to me?

Ron,
I have Stingers running through Kook's. If the weather ever breaks I would be happy to meet up with you so that you can hear them.
Let me know.
Bob
