    Does anyone currently have an aftermarket exhaust on and any thoughts on putting an exhaust on a Tacoma I currently have the 4.0 V6.

    go to a shop and ask them to reccomend 3 or 4 muffler that they think will meet what YOUR wanting to hear and NOT tell u the make or model.
    Ask if its ok to have each 1 clamped onto your stock pipes in place of your stock muffler (obviously they have to chop the stocker out).

    Let them know u want to start the truck each time and throw a small rev.

    Get the "OK" from the tech, and do this...........

    ask them to set the mufflers down in series of how they were tested.

    when done, say "I like the 2nd one" or whatever number it is.

    have it welded in place.
    pay them
    be happy.

    youtube is ****, ur depending on a phone or gopro mic which will MAYBE record 20hz to 20khz, then ur hoping the uploader didnt alter the sound, then ur also hoping you playback source can ACCURATELY replicate the entire range the video captured. This is NOT possible on ur phone, not possible on ur laptop speakers..............HIGHLY doubtful on a decent tower based PC speaker setup, and I bet alot of you dont even have a home stereo that pulls below 25 or 30hz.

    my exhaust will rattle the walls in the furthest bedroom here, but my gopro will not pickup that frequency, and my pc wont recreate the entire range either.

    buy the muffler your ears like in person.

    this was taught to me by a buddy who OWNS a MUFFLER shop.

    This may or may not sound deep on your setup (either way its deeper in person)........... the funny part is, I did this test with long tubes and short tubes (headers).............. the sound the gopro recorded was EXACTLY the same.

    In person the difference between short tubes and long tubes is huge.

    Sounds good man and i appreciate the advice what brand muffler are you running and can u tell any difference in gas and performance.

    Thats a huge can of worms, theres more than a muffler u are hearing.
    long tube headers, urd ypipe, 3" exhaust, borla xr1 welded on the ypipe, 3" super 44 flowmaster out back, dumped after axle.

    MAYBE the afe stage 2 si is adding to that sound too, but I doubt it.

    DO NOT copy my exhaust setup unless you buy a supercharger, the truck will have the torque curve of a honda civic.

    fuel, I can pull 21mpg highway with summer gas.
    performance............... Ive never been on a dyno.
    remember, without forced induction it will drive like a i4 civic. Thats all I can say......cus nobody likes a butt dyno

    see how misleading youtube is?

    I coulda posted "i have a flowmaster 10 series" or some random crap, and you wouldnt even know

    the point was............does it rattle your walls?

    now, listen to the rasp in an older video without the borla welded to my ypipe (this is why some of us use 2 mufflers)...usually that ppls next question... "why 2 mufflers" *rasp at about 2min*

    Yeah that sounds really good and yeah that’s to much for me lol I was just thinking about doing a muffler with duels nothing to fancy like yours and I’m also running a cai so that might make a little difference in how mine will sound.

    I've got a Spintech super Pro street and volant CAI and I think they sound great together. Sounds pretty deep and my music typically covers the slight drone at highway speed
