I'm running a 14" magnapack with a turn down just before the axle, would attaching a 2.5 tailpipe dumped after the axle help with some low end?

In my opinion, no.

I installed an 18" Magnaflow with the stock tailpipe on my 2.7 and lost low end torque. And even though when I reinstalled the stock muffler and cut the tailpipe behind the rear axle, I still got the low end back.

So from this experience, I learned that the engine needs some exhaust backpressure for low end pull. If you open up the exhaust, you'll likely gain more performance at high rpms, but it will come at the cost of low end torque.



I'm running a long tube LCE exhaust header before I had changed the stock muffler...




It keeps the exhaust pulses in the runners separated from each other for a longer distance. This creates a resonant tuning of the pulses which lowered the rpms needed to achieve peak torque by 650 on the dyno. But even with the exhaust header, I still needed the stock muffler to provide enough backpressure for efficient exhaust scavenging at low rpms.

2.7 liter in 2004 tacoma Flowmaster muffler flowing to dual pipes. Looks and sounds great, nice deep rumble and doesn't sound like a 4 cylinder.

I tried a large 22" long MagnaFlow. Deep and mellow.
