They took about 2 hours including welding the x pipe.
Pricing is great, service was fast but the owner is a little rude..

Hey so, did you have to provide your own parts? Does this mod affect your mpg? And also, how do you like the sound?

You don't need to bring anything to do the performance mod. They'll do everything for you. The x-pipe was the only thing I brought in to have them weld in. Just get a cheap one on ebay for like $35, it'll work. Doesn't affect MPG as far as I noticed. The sound sounds really nice with catless dp's. It's not loud but it could be when you press on it. I like it so far.

So what did you tell them to do? And what x pipe did you get?

Any 3" x pipe will work. Here's the link explaining what it needs done. The shop should know how to do it just by showing them.

Quick question, it said for e92's it doesn't need an x-pipe. Does that mean they can't do the mod? Or would they just cut and weld solid pipe on the outer perforated pipes of the exhaust?

Yes, E92s already come with an x pipe in their setup whereas E90s has a resonator in replace of the x pipe.
