Best place to buy Deck Plate - ?

Along with my muffler I'm buying/doing the deck plate mod. I don't know of any shops around here to buy one. Where would be the best/cheapest place to purchase one online? Since I have a 2.7L - the 3" one is the correct one to purchase - right?

Boaters World or West Marine both have locations all over the country. Most other boaters supply stores carry them.

I did a 4 inch on my 01 2.7. I used a 4 1\8 hole saw and used foam tape left over from my cap install to seal around the ribs

I didn't know if all boat shops would have them. I guess a trip up to the lake or a quick phone call should clear everything up.

Thanks

I had never heard of anyone doing a 4inch on the 2.7L that's awsome. I might have to give that a try. Did everything hold up once you had it installed? No check engine light or anything? I hate that light sometimes. Seems to be more annoying then helpful most of the time.

hey chris,
man, I didn't even use a deckplate. I just cut the hole out. However, I hardly ever see any water, so it doesn't really affect me. But I could definitely tell a lil boost in power. That combined w/ my header(hopefully soon), and a new muffler, I should have like 500hp's, lol!

New(to me):
2006 Sport Edition 4WD 4Runner
2.5" Bilstein 5100 in front
1.5" spacer out back
265/75R17 Mickey Thompson ATZ's
Eagle Series 140 in 17x8


OLD:
05' TRD 4x4
96' Tacoma 2.7 Ext Cab 5spd w/ a mod or 2

85' 4Runner Build Up Thread

Nice man. I haven't really had the time yet to start on my truck. I finally have some money so I'm going to be working on it here soon. I'm really waiting till February/March to put anything on because hopefully the snow will be gone. That is if we get any snow at all. Plus it's hard getting people together that can put things on like a lift for my truck.
