    I need a cat back for a '99 4cyl 2.4L. I really don't have alot of cash to put into it. I need to fix it for the winter though. Any idea's about brands, systems or buying parts individually? The less grief installing it the better. All thoughts are appreciated.

    thanks;)

    just figure out what muffler you want, buy it and have a shop cut out the stock muffler and weld in a new one, and if you want, they can even add a shiny tip too. it is essentially the same thing, but way cheaper.

    Having a muffler shop do it is the easiest and probably the cheapest for a full "cat-back" system. My local shop quoted about $275 over the phone, parts and labor. However, since I live in an area where rust-out is a problem, I decided to pay the price for a stainless system. I went with Magnaflow. Took me an afternoon to remove the old system and bolt in the new one. Bolted right up, no problems. It is a bit louder than I would prefer, but I can live with it. I had to buy the flange bolts, nuts, etc and the exhaust and O2 sensor gaskets from Toyota, as the kit doesn't include them. Cost was a bit over $475 total, inc shipping, but the labor was all on me.

    yeah I had one before but I plan on keeping the cat on this truck (shocking yes i know) so its not as loud as it was on the straight cat. tacozilla before the small block... thinking the single chamber...small 2" tail pipes and stock cat should be an ok combo

    Hey, Zilla, do you have a salvage yard or something? You seem to have access to a ton of stuff.
