need muffler shop in norcal

I'm hoping someone can recommend me a muffler shop in the Sacramento area. I want to put dual exhaust on my 68 custom. I got a quote from a shop in orangevale for $600 which sounds high to me. I just want to run dual exhaust from the heads back with some flowmasters (or other suggestions for that good v8 rumble? its a daily driver) and pencil tips out the back. any help is greatly appreciated!

Buy your complete system online and bring it in to get installed. Shouldn't be more than two hours labour. You can get everything you need from Pypes. Personally, I hate Flowmasters. They sound like crap. I like "turbo" style mufflers. Sound great, and not annoying.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

thanks for the suggestion. the only ones i can find have the the tips exiting in front of the rear wheels (which is not what i want) or out at the back corners (also not what i want). any other suggestions?

Still buy a complete system that exits out back, and just have the muffle shop change the tips. Also, your complete over the axle pipes, resonators, and tail pipes are available in stock form from any parts place (Walker parts). You could buy the intermediate pipes (manifold to muffler) from Pypes, and pick up everything else locally (or order from rockauto/summit/jegs/etc).
