Yes I did lose low end, and this is how I addressed that issue.
Our Tacos use metric sized exhaust tubing which comes to 2 3/8" OD. So I had the muffler guy run smaller
2 1/4" OD mandrel bent exhaust tubing to compensate for it. He wanted to run 2 1/2" OD, but that would have opened up the exhaust too much. I actually could have done this with the first MagnaFlow, but the solution didn't occur to me at the time. I'm just glad it did now. The truck sounds great, while still retaining the low end pull. So if you ever get your rear pipe redone, use undersized 2 1/4" OD and it will work the same for your Taco.
