Front exhaust pipe for 97 Camry.
This Camry has bad exhaust leak at front pipe. Leak is form flexible pipe portion only and rest of pipe is good condition.
The replacement part is a whole front pipe including catalytic converter. $1500.00 from Toyota dealer and $650 from aftermarket supplier. We measured the dimensions and tried to find the closest size of flexible pipe from supplier. This part was around $60. So we cut out the bad section, expanded the original pipe slightly bigger to insert this replacement part. We clamped it them and welded.
The original Toyota Catalytic converter is far superior to aftermarket one, we are happy to able to convert it this way, and so as our customer.
