    I have an 18" Magnaflow. I wasn't looking for something really loud. Around town it has a nice rumble, when you step on the skinny pedal it will come to life and when cruising 60-70mph there is hardly any drone. It really depends on what sound/loudness you are wanting. There are soooo many options to choose from, check out the exhaust sound thread it will help you figure out sounds.

    Magnaflow FTW. Flowmaster builds up back-pressure from what I've heard. And sounds more ricey. Go with the magnaflow, you won't regret it.

    Flowmaster might make you lose a few HP but sounds pretty good, Magnaflow doesn't sound too bad either. Search some clips on youtube. I've decided on the Flowmaster 40 series delta flow, hopefully I'll have it done in a few months.

    I just got a Flowmaster 40 installed @ Ed Hansons here in San Diego. For the Tacoma they recommended either a Flowmaster 40 or Dynomax Super Turbo muffler. I went with the Flowmaster 40 and I got to admit, it's has a nice sound at startup and in 1st n 2nd. On the freeway and around town, it's quiet, almost sounds like stock which I prefer.

    Not my video but this is what sold me on the Flowmaster.

    I got the 50 series flow master and I have no complaints. No drone, not Ricey, and i didn't notice any loss or gains in hp. Just for sound.
