Muffler delete/exhaust removal

I love the sound of the straight piped tacomas, I was thinking about a muffler delete then into a y-pipe. The parents think any kind of new exhaust, even adding a new muffler, will "mess up the truck". Not sure what could go wrong at all with a new name brand muffler?? They think that it could lead to a catalytic converter failure or exhaust re-entering the engine?? As long as the exhaust exits the car it will not return to the engine, am I correct? And if I do decide to "straight pipe" it will just be a muffler delete. And it's funny how they say an aftermarket exhaust will mess it up because the TX Pro comes with an "aftermarket" Toyota exhaust.

The TRD is not an aftermarket exhaust. And I would keep the TRD one because that is the best combination of sound/performance "gains" (slim to none with mufflers) unless you want to drop some serious cash in an exhaust overhaul (headers, y-pipe, cat-backs, etc, etc)

Haha I hate how quiet the TRD is, you can't hear it until you actually get on it or when it drones like crazy from 1.5K-3k rpm. And tacobo670 did a straight pipe and new headers on his and that thing sounds crazy!!

Do you know what straight pipe means? If you keeps your cats then that's not straight pipe.

Tacos without mufflers sound like crap. You like it because you don't know what a good exhaust sounds like yet. But it is possible to do without damaging anything. You could simply unbolt the rear exhaust section at the flange and braaaaap away. You will lose low end power doing this.

Another way to do it is chop the pipe before the exhaust and run a turn down. No need to do anything special since you are leaving the cats in place.

I did the same with my Ranger. One day I decided it sounded like crap so I bolted the stock exhaust back on. I got my power back, my truck didn't sound like crap and I could hear my music. Also this was my truck I was modding. If your parents say no then pretty much too bad so sad.

You gotta weld it on and there's two cutouts you can buy one with the electric switch or a manual one were you have to go underneath and take the three wings nuts off pretty simple

So it welds on after the headers? Before the Cats? I'm wanting it to bolt on right after the stock y-pipe.
