    i know very little about exhaust systems, but i am looking to put a new muffler on the taco for cheap, and ive heard good things about the magnaflows. i found this guy on craigslist selling a center in, offset out (which is what im looking for iirc) magnaflow from his 03 tundy...anybody have any idea if this whole system would fit up to my truck? its a long shot, but i figured it was worth asking...im really only interested in the muffler anyways. thanks

    also, as far as having this on his truck for 5 years already, is this something i should be wary of? do regular aftermarket mufflers like this 'burn out' like the cheap glasspack ones?

    They're just full of metal baffles. Any good shop can make the muffler fit alone but the exhaust pipe probably isn't going to match up with the rear hanger.

    so, in theory, a 5 year old muffler (aside from visual aesthetics) should be just as good as a new one? any idea how much a shop would ding me to throw the muffler on? thank you

    In theory, yes. It looks like stainless to boot. That all depends on the shop and what the have to do.

    okay, thanks. also, i believe this muffler is a 2.5" in and 3" out...think this would be enough to create any noticeable problems with back pressure, etc?
