Go over to youtube and search for tacomas with the muffler you are interested in. When I do get around to doing mine, I'm leaning towards the flowmaster 50 SUV.

Ok, lets look at the whole pic.

1) Stainless or not...

2) Sound

3) Cosmetic op's ie.. Dual tips, dual exh. etc...

You will be ok with most, as long as you dont go with those generic unversal straight through mufflers.

I like my Borla Cat back. If I went SC, I would dump the single out and go true dual.

It's all about sound, cause not much power out there in after market exh...

Well what kind of sound are you looking for? All exhaust systems make a sound.

Well I would check out YouTube for sound clips. Although they probably don't do the exhaust systems justice, you will get a good gauge on what they sound like.

I had a magnaflow cat back (18 inch muffler)on my X-Runnner, I liked the sound but it got kinda annoying after a while. (loud). I do not plan on doing any exhaust on my new truck at all, I didnt notice any differance on my X-Runner with either mpg or performace gain.

What made you go back to single? I like the duals you had on! it acutally made me want to go with the one you had or the 50 series. was there something wrong with the duals?
