Flowmaster 40, 44 question

So I'm thinking of swapping out my stock muffler for a Flowmaster 40 Series or a Super 44. Just how loud are these mufflers, it's hard to get a sense of it from Youtube ? Are they loud all the time or just when you step on it ? I do a lot of hunting and I'm worried I'll scare everything away If you're driving along in first or second gear at low RPM how much louder than stock are these two mufflers ? Also will I get the neighbours up if I come home late ? Basically I want my truck to sound more throaty, but I don't want to be a public menace

super 44 here. starting off the line is somewhat loud, stepping on the gas is somewhat loud, cruising is decently quiet around 60-70mph(on par with tire noise-duratracs). idle is quiet.

by somewhat loud i mean you can hear it, it sounds good, but wont piss off your neighbors or make you lose your fillings. just a nice throaty rumble.

I've read on here you may lose some HP by swapping out the stock muffler, is there any truth to that ?

Yea that is true for SOME mufflers. If you go with a dynomax superturbo, you will gain HP

That Youtube video sounds pretty sweet. I think I'm going to go with The super 44 but Midas has no record of aSuper 44 for a Tacoma and neither does Lordco ? Does anyone who has one have the part no. ?

2.5 in/ 2.5 out. center/center. dont know the part # but midas should be able to look it up by size. its not tacoma specific, just your standard sized muffler. fits many diff vehicles
