Whether you need an OEM style muffler installation, or a completely custom system designed to fit you specific wants and needs; you want it done right, and built to last. That means finding the right place, with the right knowledge, and the right exhaust technicians.
Since 1971, A-1 Custom has been the leader in matching customers with mufflers and exhaust systems that fulfill their needs & desires. At both of our Springfield, MO locations, and our Republic, MO location; we can fabricate, weld, bend, and build custom exhaust. We also perform muffler and exhaust system general repairs.
We specialize in the repair, and custom replacement of mufflers, exhaust systems, headers, manifolds, and catalytic converters. These components are crucial to your vehicle’s performance. Although noise reduction is a major goal in maintaining and repairing exhaust systems, a malfunctioning exhaust system will affect fuel mileage, emissions output, and in modern vehicles, can even disable normal engine and transmission operation.
Properly sealed and functional exhaust is also required to pass a Missouri State Inspection. Keeping your exhaust performing well and sounding great is not our only focus, we want to make sure you and your loved ones are not exposed to harmful exhaust fumes and gases.
Performance Exhaust Systems and Mufflers
Our highly trained exhaust technicians have more than 80 years combined experience with building and designing custom exhaust. Between our locations we share two of the best exhaust technicians in Southwest Missouri, both of whom have been fabricating exhaust since their teens. A-1 is the performance & custom exhaust king in SW Missouri, as we have been tuning muffler and exhaust sounds for customers since the era of big block engines and carburetors.
We are just as familiar with modern vehicle exhaust and mufflers. We are the exclusive dealer for Paradox Performance Mufflers, whose design utilizes an innovative system of tuning forks inside the muffler to cancel undesirable noise and provides a rich and deep sound. This system works for all makes and models – but was specially designed to operate on vehicles with multiple displacement, or cylinder cancellation. If your vehicle switches to a fuel efficient mode that turns off engine cylinders, these mufflers are specifically designed to combat the unpleasant exhaust note that occurs.
A-1 Custom Car Care also installs other brands such as Flowmaster and Magnaflow as well as Walker Exhaust and Dynomax Mufflers by special order. In addition, our locations carry a selection of some of the best and most popular exhaust tips, available in finishes ranging from Chrome and Stainless Steel, to Black Chrome and other variations. If you want your exhaust to look and sound the best it can, we know how to make your dreams come true.
Because we provide custom exhaust, catalytic converter and muffler solutions that are highly specific to each vehicle; we offer you a FREE EXHAUST SYSTEM INSPECTION and provide you with a no obligation estimate for a quality and complete exhaust repair.
If you are needing a quote for custom upgrades to your exhaust for sound or performance, we understand that this can be a very personal experience. How you want your exhaust to sound, and perform, will vary from person to person, and vehicle to vehicle. For this very reason, we want you, your vehicle, and your technician to all be involved in the decision of what upgrades should be performed, and how. This makes what we do, an actual custom exhaust solution, and not a ‘one-size fits all’ guess at cost and design. This means we develop your quote in person, with the vehicle present for inspection, to make sure the design fits your desire.
