Ah.. I was always taught that straight pipes produce enough back pressure to not cause performance loss.. Learn something everyday I guess

I'm a fan of glass-packs.. Straight through design, they sound good and they don't break the bank.

So does everyone think I should keep the exhaust I have and just get headers?

Yes. Get Headers, and if you dont already, get a cold air intake. They help sound.

ok thanks for the help I will look into headers first. Is the install on them bad? I do not want to have to pay someone to do it.
Is the anyone on here that either has straight pipes or has had them before? People have told me both ways on them, but no one really has them..

On the first page with the autoanything.com links, people have reviewed them and said that they needed some grinding to make them fit flush. So it is up to you on what you want to do.

Just get headers. Dont straight pipe a Tacoma...thats like putting shitty oil in a lexus...

Ive seen two straight-piped tacomas...they sound like fart cans, and they both are slow...


My advice:
K&N intake
Headers
