It is a good exhaust as far as i'm concerned. It's a round straight threw spiral core muffler made with stainless steel and mandrel bent tubing. Sounds good too! Should be a good choice. I have a round spiral core muffler on my 1grfe and i think it sounds good.

I hate this exhaust system...I have heard this exhaust on a 4.0 Tacoma and on a '06 V6 Nissan Frontier and both had annoying in-cab drone. Way too loud for my taste.

I have it and I like it. No drone in the cab when you are at a steady speed. It can be a bit loud with the windows down but my intake is louder at full throttle. I was going for a TRD or Magnaflow but Banks called me up and gave me a deal since it was a test fit.

I have it and it's ok. I did feel a loss in low end torque due to the 3" size but it picked it up on the mid and high end because of the flow. I only installed it because I got a smoking deal on it. My buddy has the TRD on his and I personally like it better than mine.

I found this on the web. Mine sounds the same. It's not my video btw-

That's me when the exhaust was new. I want to post something better. A Go Pro stuck to the side of the truck and a drive around would be nice.
