Just talked to a minute muffler shop

and they are telling me that Dynomax doesn't make any mufflers that fit Toyotas.

I was looking at throwing a dynomax super turbo muffler on my 4banger, which I know lots of guys here have done to theirs. Why would the shop say that nothing fits...?

If I were to install this myself is it very hard to do and do I need additional parts to make it fit?

edit - I was looking at the side - center muffler part number 17748 for my truck. Should fit I think.

Not really, just some adjustor pipes that can be bought at your local auto store! Shouldn't be too hard, if you have a 2" pipe buy a convertor pipe that goes from 2" to 3" or whatever size you need.

If a muffler shop is telling you can't make something fit (that a lot of other Tacoma owners have) then they aren't a very good shop. A good shop can make pretty much any universal muffler fit.

I got the Dynomax 17748 on my 5 lug.

Everyone I spoke with in Tucson (Trail Boss Offroad, Dan's Garage, & 4WP) kept recommending one exhaust shop in Tucson. Call around for a good shop. BTW, I got mine installed for $30, took less than 30 mins to have them weld it in place.

I have the exact same one on my 3.4. I just had to shrink the opening on the muffler a little bit with a hammer to avoid having to fill such a large gap with weld. It fits fine.
