    Default Cost to Weld muffler?

    Hey guys, I should be expecting my magnaflow any day now. Its the 18" offset/center for the 1st gen tundra. I tryed calling local muffler shops and couldnt get any estimates. Any ideas of how much it will cost me to get it welded in with a new 12" tip that i ordered too?

    It really depends. Mine was $50 or $60 to install but I didn't bother shopping around because I couldn't wait.

    yeah im using stock piping, although i just dont like how the tail pipe angles out. I would rather it angle more towards the back tire. but whatever ill get over it. Thanks!

    Bout $40-60 sounds fair, mine was an 18 pack and some pizza. Be sure to check out what they are welding with and if possible get a look at something. My buddy who did my muffler welds every bit as clean as the welds from the muffler manufacturer.... I got bored one day while he was out of town and HAD TO have my resonator taken off to cure an itch. I went to an old muffler shop by my house thinking since they have been there for ever, they must be good. WRONG. I can weld better than the old timer that did it and I've only welded a handful of times. Made me want to buy a welder and go into business. At least it was dirt cheap, and I planned on cutting that section out soon anyhow so it isn't a big deal. Point is, there is always a line drawn that separates cheap(crappy) and reasonable(fair work for price).

    If you are cutting out the stock, and reusing the tailpipe, it's pretty minimal time, labor and material. Shouldn't be too high. If you really want the tail pipe to dump out straight back instead of turning, it should be super easy for any muffler shop to use the stock section of tail pipe, cut before that turn(right where the arch comes down after the axle) and stick a 45 or so on to send the tailpipe straight back. That also shouldn't cost too much for parts or labor, it's a cut and a weld or two.
    I wasn't a big fan of the way the tail pipe looked either, but I couldn't deal with a dumped exhaust. What I settled on was cutting my pipe just half way through the last turn, making kind of a flare that still spits exhaust out from under but isn't visible unless I ran you over.
