Honestly, a reputable muffler shop is a great resource to learn from. That's where I started learning from. You tell them the sound/volume/style you're looking for and they should be able to give you multiple options.

In general though, turndown exhausts(like the one I have) before the rear axle sound a bit more bassy in tone when you're in the cab due to the sound bouncing off the ground. They are more susceptible to drone(that unbearable deep BUZZ that resonates in the cab) at cruising speeds if the components aren't chosen carefully---the bigger the muffler canister = the more sound deadening material = the quieter your exhaust will be. Exhaust tip size on these style exhaust systems, as I've learned on my previous Tacomas, really does affect sound as well. The bigger the tip, usually the deeper the tone. Most people don't realize that. Unless one simply prefers this style of exhaust, a turndown before the rear axle has it's purpose as well....to help clearance for rear suspension mods.

"Over the axle" oem style tailpipe exhausts that where the exhaust tip(s) sits behind the rear tire are less susceptible to drone. Usually higher tone and more rasp at wide open throttle(WOT). This isn't a bad thing either. Most people go with this style as they are direct bolt on and with much more options in the aftermarket.

Being that this exhaust would be a full 3" to turndown, I opted for the biggest canister I could fit----chose a Magnaflow #12579. Canister is 5" thick, 11" wide, 22" long. Center inlet/center outlet. I had him put a 4" turndown to keep the tone as deep as possible



Installed pics




Freaking LOVE how this thing sounds. Very little drone---not anymore than the TRD Catback. It's louder than the TRD Catback but only in the way that its a lot more deep and throaty. At WOT, it sounds beefy! Best part, it's only loud when I want it to be loud. At idle, it's actually quieter than the TRD catback.

Lets hear it!!!

But you have a 2010. Battery warranty doesn't go by mileage. It's prorated and I believe it's 84 month.

Thumbs up does aftermarket exhaust impact included toyota warranty?

thanks, very helpful (first-hand) info...

would toyota need to install the exhaust in order for it to still be covered by toyota warranty/maintenance program? would you know this? (i should ask the dealer directly, anyways)...

NP.

To answer your question, no, the dealer does not need to install any catback exhaust to maintain your warranty. It's not cut and dry that they(dealer/mfgr) 100% WON'T EVER deny a powertrain failure warranty claim because you installed an aftermarket catback, but the burden is more on them to prove the failure was directly caused by the catback.

Toyota will more than likely not void your warranty for an aftermarket catback....UNLESS they can prove that it was the cause for failure for any powetrain warranty claim---like your stock engine blows up after installing it[highly unlikely]. Being that it comes AFTER the catalytic converters(aka not modifying any factory emissions equipment), it shouldn't pose as an issue at the dealer. I have yet to see an aftermarket exhaust(usually LESS restrictive than stock) proven to be the culprit of a warranty issue on the powertrain side.....now, one exception COULD be trying to warranty a burnt quarter panel or something aesthetic which in that case your warranty claim would be denied because the aftermarket exhaust caused it.

Some dealer service departemtns are more picky than others. With that said, caveat emptor.

Had a close call at a gas station. I avoided the other driver but I didn't have enough clearance from the building when I swerved. Only thing missing is the fender flare for the passenger side. All work was done in my driveway with the help of the wife. It took 2 days working in the morning as the heat shut us down. 113°.
