    Default Temporary muffler fix

    Well, here's my conundrum. I have a small hole developing in my muffler. Generally I would buy a new one and install it, however I'm having surgery on the 21st of this month and will be out of commission for a while. By the time I'm somewhat back in commission it will be winter, so it would probably be another few months before I would install the new muffler. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck with patching a muffler? I was thinking of getting some metal and cutting it to fit and using some high temp rivets to install it. I would probably put some JB Weld under the patch as well as around the edges once it's in, just to make sure.

    On a good note, my driving will be limited for a while, so I won't be putting mega miles on the truck with the temporary patch. I'm trying to button up so many things before the surgery that I just don't think I'll have time to get to doing it myself for now. Any advice is appreciated.

    i've used a muffler bandage wrap type thingy i bought at schnucks back in the day. it worked good enough to drive it over to the dealer where i traded it in. that said, i recommend either replace the muff before you go under the knife, or just wait until you've recovered. like you said, you won't be putting that many miles on it during your recovery.

    Yeah, I might just replace it. My biggest concern was getting it in time as I was going to order it from toyotapartszone. After finding out shipping would be $250, I'll just go to the dealer and get one and put it in. I'll be doing the brakes, so I'll probably do it that same day. It's only from the resonator back, so shouldn't be too bad.

    Agreed. Or if you find more than just the muffler is starting to go, buy a cat back system. Much cheaper than the dealer and you dont have to spend a ton of money or get one that's really loud.

    I patched my muffler over a year ago by welding a pc of steel over a large hole using my MIG, so its certainly possible if youhave access to the right tools. Not sure how well rivets or jb weld would work, my guess is it wouldn't last long

    my vote is for a magnaflow oval muffler if you want to keep the stock sound and keep the budget low. from what i hear the ovals with a res give you just a tad more rumble under acceleration. if do want a little sound i have an 18" magnapack that went right in place of the stock muffler no problem. it is quiet cruising and rumbly under acceleration. plus it is stainless. and i got it shipped to my door in 3-4 days for under 60 bucks

    What are your thoughts on the quality of the Magnaflows, those of you who've used them? The exhaust I have is the original, 10 years old with just over 132K miles on it, and living in the Northeast to boot. I have no problem paying more from the dealer and installing it myself to get something just as reliable. I don't want to be changing it out every two or three years. Thoughts?

    i am confident mine will last 10 years. however, at 1/4 the cost of the dealer's muff, my calc says its the way to go.

    I have a ton of Tundra mufflers. Price depends on year, but I have some complete stock systems too. I can also make you a muffler. What year is your truck? I'm talking stock muffler for pennies on the dollar compared to dealer. I have like 10 gen2 Tundra systems and 3-4 gen1 partial systems, on hand ready to ship.

    Can you tell I build aftermarket exhaust for Tundra's?? LOL


    I can also build you a quiet high flow muffler.

    Google search 'how a properly built exhaust system works' It will send you to a thread on this forum, you can read about the birth of the BAmuffler. I can make a muffler as quiet, or as loud as you'd want it to be, Plus I have the experience to make that determination, ordering a generic muffler online might get you close, I can put you right in the bullz eye, I've built more systems on MY truck than I can count, much less the hundreds that I've built on other Tundra's......

    Not bragging.........Applying for a job LOL 760-877-4234. Keith

    Sounds good, but how much and how long to ship it to Massachusetts?

    complete stock drop out $50, (if this is for a 1gen Tundra) shipping is usually around $75 if you're in an urban area, if you live way out in a rural area shipping jumps a lot.

    I can make ya a 20" long muffler for $150, add $75 to put on a Helmholtz resonator which stops drone. For a 1 gen Tundra usually I'd make a muffler that is only 12" long, but it sounds like you want your truck pretty quiet.

    There are still a lot of unknowns on my part so I've just quoted you very loosely.
