I have a Supra with a Monroe keystone badge and a muffler, I'm trying pin point the date? Pre 90's , pre 95? I know the monroe badge began in 88 but when did they stop the internal muffler?

I think it would be pre '98 on the Supras. Acros continued mufflers after that but not Supras from what I gather.

I believe Monroe badges started in ‘85 with numbers 314xxxx. Muffler answer on the way.

Edit: Reading further, actually ‘84 was the move to Monroe and the appearance of that specific badge. I remember reading K.O. and others were able to estimate a likely time of year too. Can’t find my records on the muffler timeline but I know someone else has that intel. I think it was available by special order after some point making it even more challenging to determine the general end date. Again, that info needs to be validated.

I had a Monroe badge 327xxxx stamped “492” which I believe represents April 92 if that helps. It had a muffler.
