    Got a sweet price on the Gale Banks Monster exhaust for my '06 Taco......495.00 USD landed in Canada....only question I have is - can a local performance exhaust shop due the same thing for less? (custom build)

    thanks

    wat?
    providing they or u can get ur hands on the same muffler, then yeah. i bought a SS magnaflow muffler just like the one on the catback and had it welded in, replacing all but 3' of stock pipe for a total of $169...much better than the $465 or so for the magnaflow catback system they sell

    getting there....
    i got my dynomax muffler from a good dude on here for $40, and had a shop cut my stock muffler out and weeld it and a tip that i already had in,plus a new tail pipe for $60. catbacks are way overrated and too damn expensive.
