Used exhaust systems for Diesels are about $5,000.00 here in Canada I found out from the local Ford service department.

New one here in Edmonton goes for $10,000.00 to $15,000.00, that was the estimate from Ford.

Part of the issue is people don’t wanna get involved so no one reports suspicious activity. Add to that 5 to 10 minutes to cut out the exhaust, if there isn’t a cop nearby when the call comes in and a 3 hour response time for the cops to investigate, very little risk of getting caught.

Meanwhile my truck sits waiting till tomorrow when the claims department comes back from the 3 day weekend. Had to rent a car to get to work tomorrow.

ĎEric, is it considered a felony then in Canada based on the cost? Sucks it happened hopefully itíll work out for the best.

Wow, I can't stand thieves. Luckily, the few crackheads around my neck of the woods know that they will be shot or at the very least confronted by passerbys if there is something suspicious going on.

Well happy birthday anyway! My truck is sitting on jack stands while I fool with steering and brake upgrades. I didn't think of things being stolen off of it... I think my neighbors would say something if they saw it.

I had this happen to me a couple years ago on my work truck. I walked up and thought whats hanging down and it was the muffler pipe laying there. My only luck was that they didnt cut the flange off the y pipe but i couldn't find anyone who had the converter s in stock so i had one made. Funny thing is the county building is down the street from me on a busy highway and they had a bunch of the cats stolen the same night.

They thieves do not have anything to lose if caught. The punishment is a few days in jail and probation for a stretch. All the while its business as usual for them.

Even if you catch them itíll be brushed off like nothing. A used DPF where I am is $400. But man thatís ballsy. I wouldnít risk a angry truck owner pointing a 12 gauge at me when Iím trying to sawzall off his exhaust. But then again I work hard for what I have. They donít

I was amazed that someone would actually do this and mentioned it to a few of my friends while out for a couple cocktails. Come to find out that in the state of CT they banned the sale and installation of used catalytic converters. Any garage caught installing a used catalytic converter has their business license revoked, any vehicle caught with one fails emission testing.

You obviously grew up in a different neighborhood than I did. When we caught someone we didn't call the police, we handled it ourselves and it never happened a second time.

I totally understand that, I also agree, if I ever caught someone stealing something of mine.

When the law gets involved though itís basically useless.

The cost is because it is mandatory by the "Tree Huggin Liberal Leftest" who cried and whined about emissions.

Their carbon foot print is ugly.

Those of us that remember when the started to put more and more emissions equipment on our vehicles.

First car I ever worked on was my dad's 1956 Dodge Coronet with the Red Ram, First production Hemi put out by Chrysler. It also had the push button automatic, We could push start it by put it in Neutral, start pushing it to 35 mph (needed a second car for this trick), punch 2nd and she'd fire right up. I loved that car.

No emissions and had a road draft tube to draw the crankcase fumes out as you drove it, before even the PCV was used. My brother had a 67 Bug when they were real bugs and it had nothing on it either.

I hate thieves. It does look like a sawzall or similar was used. The jagged pipe shows that. I'm not sure what is going to be cheaper though, the convert and pipes or the wiring harnesses and sensors. Again I say, I hate thieves.

Just got the estimate from ford to replace all the missing/damaged parts, $12,000.00 Canadian and $9,000.00 US. 3 days out on one part, probably a probe and this does include replacing the harness.

The thief probably got $50 for the converter.
