Have you looked into MBRP? They go for 250-350 online either direct or amazon. Canadian too. About 6 hours away from me in ont. that leave 650-550 for whateves.

Summit is an option too. They ship here but duties will get you. If your close to border, ship to Washington and driver over.

I vote for magnaflow. They sound very nice. I just put on a flowmaster 50 but will be removing it shortly as it is simply to loud.
For tires the Kelly Safari TSR are priced very economically, look bad ***, quiet smooth ride, and are a product of goodyear.

MBRP 100%, great products and great company. Super helpful customer support, extremely friendly product reps and they support all forms of motorsports. Being Canadian helps too! Flo-Pro is also Canadian, BTW.

TOO LOUD ? Just like with heavy metal man.. if it's too loud..you're too old..lol

I personally like it loud, but my local police department doesn't share my opinion.
My old truck had the dual flowmaster 40's dumped in front of the tires and they didn't like that either... ( I hate them..they love writing tickets...)

but if its poping and farting and droneing and no backpressure and floating exhaust valves and loss of torque, I'll keep it sane with "proper" pipe size and muffler choice.
That said I dont think a flow SUPER 40 is gonna hurt anything, and if he keeps the oem diameter it should still be fine.... however i think its gonna be loud and possibly spit and fart on decel (loss of backpressure). If you just change the muffler you would just gain alot of noise and maybe a few HP but you would also probably lose a few ft lb of TQ. If you really paid 1k bucks on a flow super 40 setup thats alot. Your probably dual exhaust. is it dual muffler or a one into two? I would love to see a before and after dyno. because either way i bet its not enough back pressure
All that said, if you like it and it not toooo loud like **** everyone around you off, set off car alarms... fill your boots.
you will wonder what I did. I spent 135 bucks and 1 hr of my time... Cherry bomb Vortex muffler, (2.5 inch is the smallest made), a reducer (2.5 - 2.25) and two clamps.
Cut off the oem muffler, remove muffler and tailpipe from truck, remove hanger bracket from oem muffler, weld hanger onto new muffler, cut oem "mid pipe" to lenth, tigthen clamps. done... run a dump.... its a truck..
It was a bit loud still for my taste.. I added a 2.5 inch diameter chrome turndown (10 bucks) and another clamp 2 bucks. It really quieted it down.. more so smoothed it out a bit. shows the difference just one 90 degree bend after muffler can make vrs open muffler exit.
anyways enough of my rant.
for all thinking of doing this a simple muffler swap will get the desired sound, no need for duals, no need for bigger pipe (unless if you have some serious power adders)
save money and most shops will do a simple muffler swap for less than 300 bucks
spend the cash on something else cool.....

Stock pipe size I believe is 2.25"? Anyways the super 40 is 2.25". I'm a fan of loud, its a bushwhacker not a street princess. With the 1000 bucks I also got headers, wheels, levelling coils, sorted gaskets, paint and lights. So far only got my exhaust and those pesky manifold bolts off haha. I'm thinking of just dumping the exhaust so i don't have to bring it to a garage.

I know its an old thread but for those canadian folks out there.


Just did an order with Rock auto. even with shipping to canada total cost including taxes, shipping, duties, etc. was 500$ even. Same parts priced here in Canada at Parts source who actually couldnt get all of the parts in was 1200$

So I'd say rock auto. parts show up in a week and theyre really good about shipping.

I see you're in ottawa, if there is a UPS store or the like on the other side of the border, ship there. It'll save even more.

Thats what I was going to do, but the total savings on this purchase would have been less than 100$ so its not worth it at all when you factor in gas, border fees, plus I'm inherently weary of going to the US.

Why are you weary of going to the US?

Shipping to just over the border can save a lot on some items. Others, not so much. Best to shop around.

I looked hard and found a local guy that has insanely good prices for canada. Cheaper than shipping to the border and going to get it. Look in the phone book for off-road type places. Or try google. Guy I found was in the phone book only when I found him.

I'm talking about stock parts not offroad parts. Bumpers, skid plates, control arms, etc I'd just build myself.

I'm weary of the US because I have several good friends who are lawyers that I have dinner with and the conversations are usually law based. Many times the topic of rights in the US has come up and I've simply decided its not worth the risk. Plus I happen to know US crime rates lol. I'm quite content overlanding here in Canada, when I do leave the country its for somewhere more stable.

Lmao. Alrighty then. You're missing out.

Cheap gas would be nice, but I'll wait until they stabilize again and restore the freedoms theyve removed over the last decade.

Paranoia is when it isnt justified. lol. I'm just cautious.

Would you go to Iran? Because statistically speaking its safer in Iran, or even Afghanistan. lol

I go to Detroit and have no issues driving my ranger there but I get nervous when I have the raptor in the bed. I had some black guys on a bike pull of next to me and honk on the freeway.

To be honest, any one of the US cities I would want an armored convoy to take me through. the homicide stats are insane. lol This year in ottawa we've had 6 murders and thats a bad year. Last year Boston which is one of the safest cities in the US had 64.. lol Detroit at 209. LA 600. New york, my wifes favourite US city to visit... 353.

I'm a country boy, big cities to begin with bother me. Big cities where every random person is packing heat.. I'll stay in our beautiful country thanks lol.

Thats not to say I have an issue with guns, I just have an issue with people having guns who have been screwed over by their government for years and have no jobs and are drowning in debt.
