No offense to anyone that works at Canadian Tire, but that's the last place I'd take any of my vehicles for service......ANY service...too many horror stories.

Best of luck on the repair, it sounds like the sort of job you want done right, which is not always cheap.

Can't help you with any references in your area, but it may be a case of getting some quotes and going with the one that appeals to you. Good luck.

Have you tried taking it to a local muffler shop ( muffler man ) they may just surpise you with a better price.

I had a manifold that needed repairing this year as well. Dealer quoted me 1200. I shopped around and found a shop that did it for six hundred.
