    Well looks like a have a few holes in my original Tacoma muffler, not bad at 90,000. The tailpipe and headpipe look like they are pretty solid so I was thinking about cutting out the muffler with a sawzall and just replacing the muffler. I have had some interest in a "flow-thru" type of muffler.

    It looks like the original pipe is 2.25 inch, Autozone had a replacement that measured 2 inch. Does this mean the muffler should be male and pipes female? And would that work?

    Thanks,

    If youre going to saw your muffler off and just clamp a new one on, I would suggest to make sure the new muffler has a 2.5 inch inlet pipe. I took the new muffler and made cuts on the inlet side, put copper silicone on it to seal it, and clamped it over the trucks exhaust pipe.

    You can go with the 2" but get a reducer pipe as well. I personally went with a dynomax super turbo and it had the 2.5" inlet. Plus its pretty quiet.

    I think I'd rather go bigger or same size. Steve, where did you get your exhaust? Did it have the stock built in hangers?
