LunchBox Delete in Illinois

So I have decided to do the lunchbox delete on my car. For one the tip on my car is thrashed, and for two, it will get rid of that nasty box! I just wanted to drop a line in the water, and see if anyone knows a solid exhaust shop around the Chicago area. (I'm pretty new to Illinois.) I should also note I work out by Niles/Skokie area, so the burbs will work too! Thanks in advance!

To be honest, I bought this car, and have been dumping money into it, and besides, if you leave this car N/A an exhaust provides marginal gains... I'll check that place out though, thanks!

Look at it like this.. as long as you still have the cats and ONE muffler theres no reason you cant delete the "lunchbox" which is basically a resonator anyways.

Thanks for the help guys, 2007ZX3Stick, any word from the guys up at Massive Speed?
bobkat3999 I would definitely be up for cruising sometime. I have seen a black SVT up here in Skokie before, are you tinted with a white window decal on the back side window?
