Exhaust Sounds
 
If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to decide which exhaust set up or muffler to throw on....here are two sounds I like

Spintech and Banks

Spintech: http://videos.streetfire.net/Player....4-EE5606C7A574

Banks: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/att...ttacoma4.0.wav

If the Banks doesn't work....go here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/new...ma-w-taco.html

hopefully this thread slows down the redundancy (even tho this thread is posted over and again)

drive safe!

i called Banks and a "monster" exhaust is $400 before december 15 ( straight bolt on and should fit perfectly with stock hangers, also good with toyota warranty)....steep price....but christmas is coming up! haha

tx_steve 12-05-2006 11:48 AM

anyone know
 
how the banks stacks up against the "trd" and the "borala"(sp) that toyota sells?

In my opinion.....I don't like the Borla exhaust at all on the 4.0L tacoma. The TRD exhaust sounds good....I think the dealer is charging like $500 or somthing. Be careful where you buy your exhaust because some people will sell other companies exhaust for cheap and have no authorization to do so...and you get no warranty.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, the spintech muffler is a good choice.

I bought the banks for my 07 tacoma and love it...Put it on in about half an hour....Love the sound and overall quality...:)

rockn06sport 12-05-2006 05:12 PM

Sweet!

I'm waiting til next week to get mine...I already made up my mind and I'm gettin Banks......what does the set include? Did the exhaust fit with the factory hangers?

if you dont have any other mods....is it possible to get a sound clip?

did you buy online from banks site? or somewhere else? Cuz I believe Banks doesn't authorize anybody else to sell their products, voiding the warranty. What you pay?


Lady05taco - if you can....buy instore....but if you don't live in SoCal shipping isn't that bad.

jlbait 12-07-2006 08:16 AM

Bought direct from banks price shipped was 554.45

rockn06sport 12-07-2006 01:42 PM

jlbait 12-07-2006 03:49 PM

not sure If I can name companies but I was looking at performance products 4 trucks.com @ the banks exhaust for the Tacoma dlb cab s/b listed for $449.95 and they are running a 10% discount for orders over $150

*Free ground shipping applies to Continental US and UPS Ground Shipping only

so it all came out to $404.95...

I got the factory TRD one and it is awesome. Invoice for it I think was $500 but if you go to any dealership you could probably get it for less.

gchumba 01-24-2007 10:22 PM

Anyone opinions on Magnaflow cat-backs? How is the TRD system working?

Andrew83 01-25-2007 07:52 AM

It works really good! I like it, but I kind of wish I would of gone aftermarket, ohh well it works good!
