1999 Rx300 Exhaust System

Recommended Posts

I have a 1999 RX300 with 71,000 miles on it. The flange on the header pipe, that connects the header pipe to the catalytic converter, is cracked. The dealer wants to charge me $450 parts and labor to replace the header pipe. Is there an alternative, less costly option?


Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Check with any national muffler chain. If it's catalytic converter, muffler, or exhaust system-related, they can usually do a BETTER job than ANY dealer of ANY make & model for about one-third to one-half the price. That's their specialty - dealers do very little exhaust work except warranty failures.

So go to a muffler shop. You'll get equal-or-better exhaust parts, probably better expertise, and often a lifetime warranty if you ask for it.
