Exhaust

My tail-pipe is rusting out (maybe the whole system). I have it held together (for the last 3 months) with some circle clamps. It was breaking away from the rear mount.

What is this going to cost me?

What is the best way to handle this - buy a muffler from one of the catelogs?

What exactly is a catalytic converter?


thanks

Mike

I had the same work done this year. Complete exhaust replacement from the manifold back to the tailpipe including cats. You should pay no more then $750. Note this was not a LR factory exhaust. I went to a reputable exhaust shop.

Go to some smaller indipendant shops. I had my system done without cats from the manifolds back for about $180.

Man, I wish I knew your exhaust guys. When I wanted to get my cats replaced the lowest I got quoted out here on Long Island was around $1100 + tax for a whole exhaust, and the GOOD shops flat out turned me down saying 'those things are too hard'.

I ended up getting a the Y-pipe off of E-bay.

I first went to Midas Muffler just to see what they would say. $600-800
Went a mile down the road to a shop owned by a father and his son. $180 and done in 4 hours. You just need to shop around but the deals are out there.

So far the only rust I have noticed is where the tail-pipe attaches to that little bar int he back. It was rusting out so (as I said above) I threw some O-rings on to hold it together.

No (audible) problem with my muffler - so maybe I am OK.


THANKS A LOT FOR ALL THE INFO.

Mike

I purchased a used stainless Borla for about 225 if I remember correctly and really like it. Complete pain to get in, but once it, it makes that thirst v8 sound sweeeeeeet.

Mike, I have a FlowMaster muffler that sounds stock with about 10K miles on it (good for another 60K miles or more). You can have it for $25 (cost $99), plus shipping. I purchased had it installed and decided a year later I wanted a bit more sound so i replaced it with a FlowMaster 40/50 series.

When I replaced my system I bought a stock tailpipe from AB for $89 and joined that with the flowmaster muffler. My advice is have the entire tailpipe(i.e. the pipe running from the muffler to the very end f your truck) inspected for weakness. If the other sections are weak then don't spend $ getting just the tip fixed.

Just passed CA emissions with Dynatech stainless steel cats (non-CA legal) installed. These cats do the same job as ceramic cats but never go bad since they are all stainless interior. Much better flow as well.

Mike,

Keep shopping, also it's good to find a small independent shop (better for one on one & your able to keep your cost done)...

Had the same thing happen to me, pipe feel off due to rust, the shop I've used for the last 3 years could not get an LR pipe in (LR stated pipes for D90 are on back order & not sure when they will arrive) so they had my pipe fabricated & it only cost me $250 & that was for all items...

Just trying to help you out, keep shopping, $750 or $1100, for that cost I hope they would wine & dine me or better yet just bend over ???

Wow Rover4x4 - that was the "swoop and steal" response.

I appreciate the offer 1of40 - I will try to figure out what I need (the holidays will slow me down).

Do not hold on to this for me - if you find another buyer please sell it.

Happy Holidays gang - and thanks for the help.

Mike

Any recommended shops in Denver?



Also, can any shop make them out of stainless? Would you recommend this?


Is it good to follow the stock shape, or bend it further up and out of harm's way (is this even possible?)

not really possible clearance wise you could hack a little off the end, or tuck the cat and the y pipe up a little higher in the frame dont ask how I found out. stainless fuck it my muffler has a hole I am getting a flowmaster soon not sure wich one but a flow master for sure unless I find a borla for less than 150. I figure you could have like 5 flowmaster put in at the local muffler place for the price of a borla. I can spend my money better in other places like rear axles or some rock (stump) sliders
