Any information would be appreciated!
You'll get more
low end pull if you go back to a single exhaust. Duals are way
too open of an exhaust system for a 2.7. When you lose exhaust gas velocity, you lose the scavenging effect and along with it, bye bye torque.
The stock muffler is very well matched to the engine. And I think that $230 is an ok price to get a full stock system, unless you wanted to shop around to see if you could find another Tacoma owner who took theirs off.
Have the muffler guy take the duals off cleanly so that you'll be able to resell them. it's not hard to find guys who want a loud truck.
