I do not know about where you live, but in Washington state there are a lot of muffler shops that can fabricate any exhaust pipe part, and weld it into place if you want, for a fairly reasonable cost. You just need to drive south of the border to get it done.

they can also fabricate the pipe with bolt on flanges if you want, so you can remove/replace it at home with normal tools. Though I have found that the welded up exhaust system holds up better, fewer leaks, loose parts, etc. You can even have the system made of stainless steel pipe, heavy gauge large dia pipe, etc.

Hi Petros .
I saved two old Intermediate pipe with only rust it out at the very end where the muffle hook up to , 90 % of the pipe look new .
My T4WD is in the muffle shop now to cut up at before the Diff. and add new piece there then add new muffler .
OK , I remember I use to order brand new from part store , I guess ,I have been out of date for long time . i remember last time , I order a new pipe from Bellingham's O'Reilly part store about 6 years ago for my " American version Tercel4WD"
It is the storage now and now I am driving a "Canadian Version T4WD "

thank you Petros

I have noticed a lot of things for the t4wd getting harder to find. there are much fewer glass suppliers for new replacement windshields, and there are fewer new manufacture CV axles, and I would say likely fewer remans as well. A lot of other small odd engine parts that used to be routinely available have also disappeared.

It seems to me this forum is a lot less active as well, fewer people keeping their T4wd on the road I guess.
