TRD Exhaust or Borla Exhaust

Im trying to decide between TRD Exhaust or Borla Exhaust, which are both Cat-Back, and i want to get a system which will improve my trucks performance and deepen the sound by a lot and of course making it louder. Pretty much which is better and will also take care of my truck? Im getting a TRD air intake from my dealer so i wanted to know if i should just get the exhaust as well. i live in California so i cant get the K&N 63 intake i wanted because its "illegal." thanks

Does the Borla (TRD or Magnaflow) just make it sound like a 6 with indigestion or a decent low tone? Not exactly a v8 with decent CID, so kind of curious if it sounds 'muscle' or 'ricey?'

Listen to the vids and decide for yourself. Check out my Banks vid in my sig. I sounds eh. It was new in the video so the sound have changed a bit since then.

^^ Yep! verry happy with the sound....
Its not too loud to be annoying. and at cruising speed, (40-60mph) you can barely even hear it.
And it sounds awsome when you open it up. not sure how loud you want, but I think the Borla is plenty loud.

Question what exhaust for my 06 4.0

Hi everybody! I am brand new to this group and this is my first post and Im doing it from my droid phone lol! Now my post is a question about what exhaust i should do on my 2006 trd off road 4x4 access cab 4.0 6 speed tacoma. I love the sound of the trd and borla and the magnaflow sounds good too. I don't like the flowmaster sound on these at all. Iv watched tonsbof videos on YouTube of almost all the exhaust options for this truck. And i still can't decide what one is for me. I want the least amount of cab drone/noise possible and want good performance gains. Any suggestions? Help me?! Haha

Borla and Magnaflow are awesome exhausts, but also check out Gibson exhausts, they are less $ than Borla and Magnaflow and still an awesome sounding exhaust with no cab drone. Performance wise on any exhausts are very little unless you do headers and full exhaust swap, which then would probably give you about 20 more HP. Hope that helps ya out

I have the TRD. I'd probably go Borla if I had it to do over.

x2 on the gibson. I have one on my truck and its awesome. I get compliments all the time and there is no annoying drone. Sounds really good in the cab as well.
