Atco is located in Englishtown, NJ. Near exit 8 or 9 of the NJ turnpike. That's the only one I know of as well.

while we are on the philly burb topic, anyone in the area have access to fender rolling? My 6s needs it desperately as my 18's are rubbing and it is possibly the most saddening sound you can ever hear. Im located in Ft. Washington, PA about 3 minutes from the Ft. Washington Expo center. Ill be back from school from December 14-21st if anyone can help me between those days or just give me a shop in the area. Thanks a lot!

Yeah, I think the downpipe, less weight, and stiffer springs will give you a slight advantage ;-)

I have the magnaflow (dosent do crap really) and a 3" TMIC (christmas present). I plan to go with the ATP downpipe with cats once available.
