    Hey guys,
    Proud new owner of a truck that I love enough to join a damn forum group about.
    Im looking for a good yet cheap "performance" exhaust. Nothing loud or annoying but will do its job and give my girl some solid bite behind the bark.

    Been thinkin' along the same lines. Stock muffler is starting to rust out. $300+ for 2 pieces of pipe and a muffler? - You gotta be kidding me!!! Have some welding skills. Just trying to decide on what diameter to shoot for before I start cruising the scrap yards for some stainless. Then, I'll probably start shopping for a turbo muffler. Anybody else done this?

    89 SAS 3.4 1st gen 4runner- Sold 3.4 swap cut hood for clearance exhaust x-over and magnaflow muffler lockright in the rear SAS 83 toy axle (Wab-Fab) 4xinnovations sliders roof rack from 2nd gen for kayak.
    try just a muffler, magnaflow/flowmaster/dynamax they get you the sound without the cost of a full catback.
    i paid 106 for my magnaflow welded on my factory pipes. not bad and no real gain from exhaust power wise anyways. so keeping the cost down was a big concern for me. headers get you some power i have heard so that will probly be on your mind down the road.

    have fun and welcome.

    I would get a dynomax super turbo muffler. It is more flow than stock but not too noisy. I had one installed for about $150 parts and labor.

    A cat back system is essentially a new muffler with new exhaust tubes. The funny thing is the exhaust tubes are the exact same as stock - so it is a waste of money. A new muffler is the same thing.

    A header will make a big HP increase along with a new K&N intake or deckplate mod.

    i had a flowmaster 40 welded in for 140 and last week had the guy cut the tail pipe off and put in a new one in a higher location and he welded in 2.5 in pipe instead of the stock size and i didnt think id notice a difference but i love the sound. total was 180 for basically cat back with a flowmaster.

    Go with the dynomax super turbo and just get the muffler. Just weld it up yourself and you can be done at well under $100.
