Hello, I was looking for a muffler recommendation in the North Raleigh area. I have a vehicle that needs a muffler replaced.

Thanks!

I recently had some emissions work done at Henry's Muffler on E Millbrook. They worked with my schedule, their prices seemed very reasonable, and had the job done before the time promised. I would definitely use them again.

General replacement work you need to go to Henry's. Custom mandrel-bent work check out RJ's on Capital.

Seconded. Henry's can do standard run-of-the-mill work, but they also do custom work and have done so on a few cars of mine, and their pricing was frankly a bit too low. I felt guilty walking out of there paying so little so I tipped the welder to make up for it. If I can't do the work myself at home (I do have a lift and access to a welder), I would go nowhere other than Henry's.

Still another vote for Henry's. Great prices for quality work, and he will take the time to answer any questions you might have. I wouldn't use anyone else.

Only problem with Henry's is the lack of a mandrel bender. Custom work is one thing. Custom performance work is another and Henry's just can't do it right so that's when I go to RJ's.

I do like Henry's although I've never been to the Millbrook rd. location. I always take my cars to Todd at the Capital blvd. location. I've been using Henry's for 15 years now.

Perhaps, but how many of us really absolutely need mandrel bending? almost none. I didn't bother when I put straight pipes (after the frontal resonators) on my car, and I doubt it makes any difference. If you're talking bending headers then sure, but for rear type work, I just don't think it makes a real world difference or that anyone who isn't racing for dollars would care or see a change.

'Tis true if you're after sound from a stock engine. But when you add performance parts to an engine to make more power or in my case have a turbocharged 403ci big block mandrel-bent pipes could add another 10 hp.

Right, that was my point. How many people have turbo 403ci engines on this board? Probably just one!
