Hey,

I'm having a hard time finding a 2 1/2" exhaust system for my 1985 4runnner. Anyone know where I can get it? I want that nice puurrring noise.

Go to any exhaust/muffler shop and have them do it. Cost me $225 including a 2.25" cat, muffler and tubing all the way back...I wouldn't go bigger than 2.25" or you will loose some low end probably. BTW I never noticed a differant sound, just a bit more punch which is what I wanted anyhow.

Go 2.25"... All I did was order the V6 exaust because it is 2.25" and if you can get your hands on a V6 cat it will bolt right up... AlL I did was make a new pipe to go from the hedder to the v6 exaust....

I had mine done at a local muffler shop $100 for 2.5" after the cat with a flowmaster dumped before the rearend with a turndown at the rearend. Sound great and opened it up alot I also have a warmed over 22r.

I had a stainless exhaust put in, from the header back (I supplied the free-flow cat) for just over $400 from a local muff shop - including a dynomax superflo SS muff. as stated above - don't go above 2.25, unless you're looking for a street only rig. you'll loose too much low end, if you go bigger. call around to some local shops and talk to people in your area. don't waste your time or $$$ with a store bought system - go custom

Go 2", unless you really plan to rev that thing up 2" is the way to go.

Dude, you need to make that pic a bit smaller. 356K is quite a bit bigger than 5K. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

i did a 2.5" on mine. its fine and i have lots of torque when i off road. my engine doesn't stall until i get it down to 350 rpm either. i removed my cat too! it sounds good and is only noisey when i have my foot in it! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Downey Off Road does make a 2.5" system but it is pricey compared to an exhaust shop doing it. I slapped a PaceSetter 2.25" on my '94 V6 and it does just fine. Sound good. Not too loud and it doesn't have that tell-tale ricer sound either. Of course installing a set of headers helped too. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Figure 2.5" pipe will flow 200hp. I was running it on my hybrid with about 150hp. It killed low end power but helped highend. I needed highend for the mudbogs anyway. I was spinning 7500 out of it!

I use 2.25" IMO.
