    I have a regular cab 04' Tacoma 2WD with the 2.4L engine.
    I recently had my rear catalytic converter stolen in Alameda, CA.
    Has anyone had experiences with 50 State Magnaflow converters on a similar truck. I want to avoid problems such as a "check engine light" or some other fault code with the engine.

    Thanks,
    Denis

    They use use cheap metal, rust easy, rattles most out of all performance mufflers, good customer service but with products with that many problems, they better have good customer service, hundreds of reports of defective mufflers on the internet doesn't help either.

    if you're talking catbacks and mufflers, they're priced pretty well for what they offer. if you want a higher quality product, there's borla, corsa, stainless works, but they're usually priced higher. their craftsmanship is top notch and you get what you pay for. walker is a good brand for cats as well.

    Denis when you get your new cat put on, you might want to considering engraving your license plate number on it. They may come back again and steal your new one. Concord PD just did a thing in conjunction with Concord Toyota where they will put your plate number on it and spot weld the bolts. I know it won't stop someone from cutting the pipe but the mindset of the PD is that if they cannot prove the cat was stolen, they can't press charges. Having some kind of tie in with the truck (engraving) pretty much will put them in touch with the owner so the owner can press charges. There's no crime if there is no victim.

    Matter of fact, it was just found that three people were busted with stolen cats in their Camry and only one cat had identifying marks. That alone was enough to press charges on them.
