    Aloha Guys,

    1st timer here. I recently discovered Tacoma World and really enjoy reading the posts. Very informative!

    My 02 Taco has 120,000 miles on it and I have just started to make a few changes to it. I just received an Injen cold air intake and will install it tomorrow. Also based on some posts I have read here I ordered a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler model # 17748. It should arrive in a few days. My question is...What is a reasonable cost to have that installed by a muffler shop? I really have no clue at all what the "norm" is and wondered what you guys have experienced?

    Thanks for any help and Happy Easter to you all.

    Aloha
    Rich

    I had an aero center center so I had my midpipe before the muffler replaced so it could be a center center and I got a quote for 200 with stainless steel piping but im selling my aero now I never got around to putting it in

    It cost me 50 bucks to have the old one cut out and the new one welded in. i also got the exhaust dumped over the rear axle so that may have cost a bit extra.

    NONE.....yet!

    If you're not having anything fabricated up, then $50 to $75. My suggestion is find one of those shitty "we can do anything"
    muffler shops, and see if they'll do it for $40. There isn't much that could go wrong other than leaks, but you should be able to hear those right off the bat, and ask them to fix them while you're there.

    Looks good! I'm think of doing this soon too. I called a local place here and got quoted 375 for flowmaster 40 single in and dual outs. Would it cost more for the duals near the back side rear like yours or straight out the back?

    I will look around for a couple of local shops and see what they are asking. This gives me a decent ballpark. Thanks guys. Really appreciate it.

    I do not know ask the shop, I did mine out the sides so there is less of a chance to crush them when i go out and play. The way I had then bend them I am still able to keep my stock spare under the truck and the tips do not incroach on the departure angle

    if you are bringing in the muffler are you getting a tip on it too?
    If you have them put on the muffler and tip it should be no more than 35 bucks
