Best Exhaust System?

I have a 2006 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4WD and want a dual exhaust system. Right now it's straight piped and I want it louder. Any suggestions about which dual exhaust system would be the best?

Well duals look stupid on truck IMO. The best one is the one that you think is the best one. Chokemaster and MBRP make dual kits. If straight piped isn't loud enough for you then maybe look at:



Also do you know what straight piped really means? It doesn't mean just no muffler.

I like the look of duals myself. I like them out the sides of the bumpers better than straight out though. If you want it loud maybe get a Flowmaster 40 or 44 series muffler and get the shop weld it on and run duals.

would there be any increase in power with a Flowmaster 40 or 44 series muffler?

Nope. They both take power away evenly.

Would headers add a significant amount of power and a louder sound?

Sound yes because they remove the front cats. Power? Well if you get long tubes you will lose more low end power but gain good top end.

When I added headers, it did increase the sound, but it got really raspy, especially after 3k rpm. I had a custom y-pipe made as well with a single in single out Flowmaster 50 series. A lot of the raspyness went away, but it's still there a bit. Overall, I really like the sound of my truck though. Headers were a great addition.

Best exhaust is stock exhaust. If you want to mod the exhaust do it for sound mostly. You can't "add" hp with an exhaust/headers. You can only simply hope to open up flow, and hope that power is "unlocked" more than "added". I love " " don't judge me

Exactly.
If you're that desperate for attention, go all the way.

Yup, just take off the heads and remove all of the stock piping... your weed eater build will be complete.

There is no best exhaust, its simply about what sounds best to you.

It is all about the dyno man. Even DT's dyno shows a loss below 3000ish.

Oh and I believe the 32. -32 that is.

You forgot to add the type "R" stickers as they are worth 20 hp apiece.
