    I currently have a black widow 250 race Venom muffler I’m wanting to install but wondering what would be the best sounding muffler? Should I put bigger piping? I have a air raid throttle body spacer and cold air intake. Please help me? IMG_0629.jpg

    Forget it! Every outfit sounds like continually farting in a can. If you can find a muffler similar to a 370Z or Infinity it will sound excellent but there isn't anything available yet, I have researched it and if you get close to the exhaust while the Taco is running it sounds nice; it just needs to be louder.

    Bassani sounds like a 350z

    My Borla has a very pleasing sound. It totally eliminated the tinny sound of the OE system. Very high quality.

    Yes it does, but not anywhere near objectionable.

    Does the TRD exhaust come standard on TRD models or is it an extra? Ive been reading a lot if reviews and listening to sound clips and pretty much across the board, borla, magnaflow, flowmaster, afe, mbrp, everyone is initially excited about their mod, 6 months a year later not so much. I can't see dropping a lot of money for an iffy whim, think I'll just stay stock.

    I BELIEVE that it only comes stock on the Pro.

    Noise and flow are two different animals. I was shocked by the backpressure in my stock system but was relatively pleased with the stock system exhaust note. The Borla system greatly reduced that backpressure without increasing the noise from the exhaust. I believe many aftermarket systems just increase noise and do little to nothing to reduce the backpressure.

    The 4 liter and smaller engines used in the Tacoma will never outflow a 2-inch pipe. The benefit of a 3-inch pipe is non-existent on such a small engine. The performance log jam in the system is the low flowing stock muffler.

    Somewhere on here, I wrote about my backpressure findings on the stock and Borla exhaust. The Borla exhaust reminds me a lot of the Abarth exhaust that I had on my TR6 which gave me surprising performance gain over the stock system and a lower, smoother exhaust note.

    IF I was gonna do it it would be borla, even though its one if the most expensive it seems to be the best bang for the buck.

    I bought my Borla for less than Toyota charges for their TRD exhaust.

    Yeah, I remember you gotta deal on youres, I haven't been lucky enough to find one of those deals. I think it was toyota of Greenville was selling the TRD for $607 plus tax and shipping, found a borla from Summit for around $550 + tax, free shipping.

    I had a local exhaust shop put a Flowmaster dual outlet muffler on 2 different V6 Dakotas I had in the past. They ran dual pipes out the back.

    It sounded good enough that I had it done on the second Dakota I had. I think you almost have to go with dual tail pipes to get a kinda good sound.

    The Gibson exhaust set up my dad has on his 5.7 Tundra sounds most good.
