I needed to have a catalytic converter replaced on my Mitsubishi Montero. $1200.00 + tax with the dealer. The muffler shops do not have access to my cat from their distributors and Mits. was selling it for $899. I found a cat on line for a fraction of the cost and I could not get anyone to take a look to see if was adequate for the repair. Ace agreed to look at what I had. Decided it would work on the spot and knocked the job out in 1.5 hours on that same day with no wait. And the price was right to boot. 1/3 the original quote.

Ok so here is the deal, bottom line ACE IS THE PLACE...
I have 2 cars, and am lucky and yes both of them had issues at the same time, the Dodge needed Break pads, shoes, and roaters resurface ( Not a big job though )
the other car is Honda, tons of work been done already and luckly the muffler broke, and start making a very loud noise like a racing car.
So I decided to go to AAMCO and what a VERY BAD DECISION I made, I put the Dodge to get inspected took 2 hours to get it inside rediculous right, and then it took them extra 2 hours to changes breaks, shoes, and Oil change,They charged me 270 soooooo rip off.
so I decided to go to a different place, and Luckly I found Ace tell u what Ace is the place if u need breaks mufflers or tires.
The guy there saw the muffler broken from a place where if I sent it any where else they would have charged me at least 400$ and if I sent it to AAMCO I would have been broke I wouldnt eat for the rest of the month, so the guy there said sir, this is broken why change it I can just put a pipe here and weld it and no leak no nothing and u will be all set, after what I paid for AAMCO I decided to say Indeed Yes, he charged me 45$ Yes little bit too much but still way cheaper than any body else..
again bottom line Ace is the Place..

I was short on time, so I called ahead, and he checked to make sure he had all the parts before I came in. He used very high quality parts, and watching him work was enjoyable, since he's clearly a very experienced craftsman who works very carefully. He told me he guarantees his mufflers for life.
He only takes cash, he does not take credit cards or checks. He does give you a receipt so you have a record, but be prepared to have cash on hand. For my 1997 Ford Escort, it cost $75.00, including tax.
