Dynomax mufflers?

Lots of Flowmaster, Magnaflow, and Borla threads.

I'm thinking of installing a Dynomax Super Turbo muffler in place of the stock muffler. No headers, just cut out the old and weld in the new using the stock 2.5" plumbing and remaining single side exhaust. I'm not looking for much if any louder, just a little less restrictive and more power. Anybody with this setup?

i havent seen anyone with dynomax on their tacomas....so i say go for it. dynomax arent usually too loud, and you may get some performance from it. if you decide to go with it.....put up a sound clip!!

I'd seen that one and PM was not returned so still wondering which part # on that clip as I liked the sound as well. Thanks RR.

Put it on today

I installed a Dynomax super turbo muffler today. Part #17731 that is a side/center mount pattern. Sized 2.25" on both ends. Simply cut out the stock one and had to add about 6" inches of pipe in front and add some hanger rods to fit the stock locations. Stock muffler is 21" long and this one is only about 14" and flater so it sets up inside the frame a little higher. Took 30 min. and $108 total out the door.

I'm still getting used to it. It is slightly louder than stock at idle but gets only noticeably louder while accelerating and then goes back to mellow at cruising speed. I don't feel it is as loud as the clip above but it may get that way. I saved the stock one just in case. It's now raining so I will try to post some sound clips later, with some help from Bob I'm sure.

I did have a friend riding with me at lunch after the install and yes I did have an urge. I was mildly suprised at the difference from a slow roll. My buddy commented that for a V6 it sounded and felt pretty good. He then started drilling me for make and #'s.

He has a '08 Dodge with a hemi.

Same as you. If you don't just romp on it the sound is a nice lower mellow tone that all but disappears as you get to speed. Is that a discription?

I'll give it a try on U/T. Is that the only way to get it to this sight? I shot some video with a digital camera that has sound today. The growling as the pup chased the tennis ball was truly impressive.

We'll see tomorrow when the rain stops, though I'd just as soon it rain awhile as we are desperate for it here.

Looking forward to it man! With you on rain-I dig it myself. We could use a good 1 here as smog is building up quick. That lower mellow tone almost sounds like a V-8 to me TCBob has a gaggle of video sites supported here. He's really cool and accommodating gent if you PM him w/your capabilities

I have a 3" Dynomax super turbo and its pretty mellow except when your under acceleration. Gained some fuel mileage as well.

Guys - That's my truck in the vid. I love the exhaust note and can vouch for the quality. Part # escapes me unfortunately, but I might be able to dig it up. I've also got another vid after I installed the DT shorties...I'll get that up soon.

So it is a Dynomax super turbo muffler? Curious how you did your system with the headers, dual now or still single side out? I actually wanted a side/side mount version but went ahead with the side/center as it was in stock. Still trying to picture the air flow route in a side/center or a center/center design?

The increase in sound seems to be growing on me and I was told by the muffler shop that it would be quieter than either the Magnaflow or the Flowmaster mufflers. It does seem more responsive and I got 17.8 mpg in town on the 1st tank after the install.

I seem to remember superflo or ultraflow in the title...
I was told the same about the sound being quieter than a Mag or Flow, but I really wouldn't want it any louder. Great growl @ 40-45 and awesome roar on WOT.

Found the one off of their sight with the complete kit for the Tacoma as the Ultra Flo #17219 a side/center with quite a bit more flow rate than the one I got. Thanks for the info and I'll try to get a sound clip on here.
