    Lou's Custom Exhaust in Salem NH were super cheap installing the muffler I ordered from Summit. Quick turnaround and I was able to watch it the whole time.

    Another question for the Northeast Crew related to local/regional resources.

    I am considering a range of modifications to my Boston-based '13 Raptor, and have worked with a few forum vendors on discrete items, but really am having trouble finding information on local service providers/installers.

    Therefore, I would be very interested to hear who you have used or worked with for the following services in or near Massachusetts (I am fully aware that some of these items are easily owner-installed, so "did it myself" is also useful to know, but what I really want to know are good, competent shops:

    1. Move from bottom perch to mid-perch, pinch welds, and any other clearance work, such as aftermarket fiberglass?

    2. Installation of Deavers springs?

    3. Installation of front/rear aftermarket bumpers?

    4. Whipple supercharger installation? (Birdman made the good suggestion for ESP in Sterling, MA above for a simple dyne tune, and ESP seems like a good shop; however, when I called to discuss the Whipple SC, they confessed that they had never installed one on a Raptor and had very little experience with the 6.2 engine in general apart from dynotuning.)

    5. Suspension refresh/rebuild? (Rory at Raptor Kustomz in CT seems to be logical choice.)

    If I am definitely interested in the supercharger, is the path of least resistance (though a path of considerable distance) simply to drop my truck off at JDM in New Jersey for a couple weeks and have their shop do everything and deal with the logistical headache that entails (coming from Boston)?

    Best and Happy New Year,

    Dustin

    Touch base with Rory
    He can do what he can in house and point you in the right direction for mods he can't do.
    Think about servicing these mods in the future...
    Its nice to work with a shop that is a short drive away that does great work.
