Try checking the dealer first. My friend just changed his catalytic converter without the front pipes at the dealer. Original Catalytic converter cost $800.00 plus $200 in installation. I don't know how much is the front pipes.
I just checked the dealer's price for the front pipes. $875.00
So your $2k cost is about right as long as your mechanic installs original Toyota parts.
