Interesting...

Why did you not go with the original y-pipe? You went with the DT pipe-bomb, right (I thought I saw the muffler clamp in the middle there)? Just curious, I just ordered the original tonight.

Are the crackheads going to know that they are not cats? I went with the URD y-pipe, to help fight cat theft! (yeah, the URD is quite a bit more $ and of course that is not the only reason I went with it).

Does it help w/ gas milage?

I bought a used 95 4X4 V-6 Taco awhile back that came with a flowmaster exaust. It sounded really cool, but was loud & I got tired of it over time. I pulled it & lost 3mpg! OUCH!

If they think those are Cats then their just fuckin dumb. the reason i didnt go with the URD y-pipe is because it would be WAY to loud for my taste.

i drove it like a granny on saturday and did notice a slight MPG improvement. but when i WOT i def see my gas go down

Uh oh! I did not want it too loud. Did I make a mistake? Seriously, I wanted better flow (and to lose the squish pipe) but not much more in volume. I still have the stock muffler on though.

Edit: looking at your sig line you have headers and magnaflow, maybe mine won't be too bad....

I listened to Tacoskims clip, and I would say that his set up sounds very similar to mine.

Im running; True Flow XDI, JBA Headers, URD Y-pipe, Borla SS Cat Back.

Maybe at WOT it will be a bit louder, but you should be ok.

UPDATE

no more rattle!! everything is now smooth. i thought the rattle was coming from the screw springs that connect the y-pipe to the cat-back...turns out that the rattle was coming from the gasket. the gasket was too small. the end of the y-pipe goes out about little under half a inch of the gasket. so the end was what was making the rattle. so we put in a bigger gasket and no more rattle!! so i suggest if anyone gets the pipe bomb to get a larger gasket. sorry for the lack of the videos but i will get them up now that everything is nice and tight

Was it the gasket they sent you with the "bomb" or did you get your own?
