Default Good Performance Shop (Houston)

I need to find a good performance shop in Houston maybe close to the North West side. I need to have an HKS exhaust and Berk HFC's installed at the same time and I would like them to do a good job. So if anyone knows a good place to to exhaust work that would be rad. Also does anyone know how much I can expect to pay for these items to get installed? Thanks

Yeah I had some work done by a muffler shop (on my truck) and was able to make a deal with the guy. He even ended up helping me trade out my U joints and carrier bearing. All for a 40$ bag. lol.

Typical labor rate is 70-90 dollars for basic bolt ons.
Exhaust is probably a 1-2 hour job
HFC will add another 1 hour (only 1 hour as it is done with the exhaust making it easier)
I would say probably around 300 to 400 for both installed is what I would estimate from a good shop.

Did a nice job on installing High Flow Cats and Full HKS Exhaust for $65. Not bad! They loved the car so much the guy was taking pictures of it! Call it what you want to call it but bolt ons are bolt ons.
