Any exhaust shops in Los Angeles that does mandrel bending?

I'm thinking about doing some exhaust mods in the beast to open up the sound a bit. I plan to take out the resonators and exhaust and replace it with the magnaflow x-pipe and exhaust cans. I was wondering if there are any shops in the la area which does mandrel bending for the pipes? I figure if I am going to have some custom piping done, I want to maximize the flow too.

Update:
I acutally did some diggin on other forums and this is what others have come up with,

Thanks much,

He does not do mandrel bending but I second the referral! He did my work just 2 weeks ago. It's in this post...
Magnaflow 14816 Side By Side

Personally, you are not going to get any huge significant difference between mandrel bending vs. regular bending.

I know a great shop in Santa Ana, but the owner specifically asked me not to advertise for them because they have enough work already. However, since they work closely with BMS I'd call Chris (714-429-0257) and talk your problem over with him.

The shop in question did the custom exhaust (Magnaflow and built-from-scratch parts) for my Z4 M Coupe, and the results are great. For more details check the link in my sig.
