Flowmaster 40 or Magnaflow exhaust for 09 Prerunner 4cyl?

Hey All,

Just wanted to get some opinions on which exhaust I should get. I have a 2009 Prerunner 4cyl, with 5 speed manual. Right now i've only done a drop in K&N. A shop near my work said they would do either one, Flowmaster 40 series or a Magnaflow for $140 installed. I'd like to stay away from my truck sounding like a rice-rocket exhaust, would prefer something throaty (as much as a 4 banger can be) and louder but not obnoxiously annoying.

Any suggestions? or should I look into another exhaust other than flowmaster or magnaflow?

Thanks for any advice / suggestions!
Frostoy

BTW, Here's a pic of my baby: "Big Red"

iv got an 04, with a 40series flow sound, gives a throaty sound and also keeps it sound while staying at a steady speed. was only 100 bucks and adds alot of sound. i wanted the same thing as you, its not to loud not to quiet. very happy with it

Don't buy Flowmaster anything, they failed to renew there patent a few years back. If you want a Flowmaster for about $40 less and the exact same performance and sound,,,buy a Flowtech.

Im looking for an aftermarket exhaust on my 2009 4cylinder 5sp too. Questions, what'sgoing on between the headers and mufflers? 2 cats? or is on a pre-muffler? Is it worth removing one and then adding a performace muffler or would a "cat-back" system solve this problem?

Will i loose performance with a cherry bomb? I also have a 3inch piping and i dont wanna change that, i just wanna change the muffler, do they make some that wide on one end?
i dont think you will lose performance with the cherry bomb extreme. its a single chamber muffler. i havent noticed any performance losses

i'm going to run a single out and run some pipe straight back with a turndown.

So the guy had literally just finished working on my truck when a guy and his son came in to the shop and when he turned my truck on the guy asked if it was a V6 and then he didn't believe me when I told him it was a 4-banger.

It's definitely throaty and loud though lol
