Re: Expensive muffler

     This happened to me but did not go through.  Why not have someone who 
     is proficient with an oxy/acet torch patch it.  If you remove it 
     yourself, cut out the bad piece, and cut and grind a replacement 
     piece, a good welder would probably only charge your $20 or $30 for 
     it.  No sense replacing a good muffler.

Hi guys,
The hanger of the muffler broke on me.  That's no big deal. The big 
deal is that the exhaust pipe of the muffler hung onto the rear 
quattro drive coupling.  This burnt out a big hole on the exhaust 
pipe.  Expensive.  Luckily the coupling does not seem to be damaged, 
I hope.
The local muffler shop quoted me $ 675 Canadian fund, ($500 US) for 
an aftermarket replacement.  I think it is rediculous.  Anyone know 
where I can buy a muffler at better price than that ?
