    Well yea It's nothing like SoCal. But there are alot of kids that just want to show off ad the cops are all used to it and a loud truck probably won't catch their eyes or ears when there are stage 3+ S4's and 135i's

    drove to work today for the first time after getting my aero turbine installed this weekend. This thing is loud, Un-Godly loud on the gas.

    I have the 2525xl and I like it a lot. sounds sweet at start up, and its got a nice throaty rumble to it while cruisin thru town. I don't get too much drone on the highway, its actually relatively quiet while cruisin, but if you put the pedal to the floor, she lets you know she's back there! sounds wayyy better than stock IMO

    Curious about this.... Can anyone give me a quick explanation of what the difference xl and non xl version is? Resonator right? And what exactly does that do...

    ahh alright thanks. It's a 50 buck price difference, so I might just get the non xl version and if I really want to I think I can buy the resonator and have it put in

    It is welded on in place of my TRD muffler, cut off before the axle, and turned down so the exhaust isnt blasting into my axle:

    The aero turbine was one of my choices but decided to go with the Spintech. Never really compared the two side by side but the Spintech can be loud when you get on the gas but has low tone rumble on the highway (no drone!) but I did put a resonator (magnaflow) before the muffler.

    I'm thinking about adding a resonator to my Aeroturbine. Mine is way too loud also lol.. I mean it was fun for awhile but the loud gets old real quick. Sometimes gives me headaches on long drives.

    I've only had my Tacoma for a few days so it's still sitting here bone stock but my last truck was a 07' 2500 Dodge Ram with the Hemi in it. The 2500 Rams don't come with the resonators built in like the 1/2 tons do so I went with the 3030XL setup with a single 3" pipe coming out in stock location with a 4" stainless tip and it was the best sounding exhaust I've had to date. Sounded different than everybody else and had a nice mellow rumble to it when drove normal but man did it scream when you put the throttle to the floor. Had a ticked off almost mad max sound to it if that makes sense. Zero highway drone which was nice and it didn't have that crackling popping sound that most open exhausts get on deceleration, Flowmaster Original 40 series comes to mind if you know what I'm talking about. I found a dealer that sells on ebay and I paid $110 shipped for that 3030XL muffler which was a great deal at the time.

    That's what I did with mine. The nostalgia of just being super loud wore off after about 6mos. I also didn't like the fact that if you were in the backseat of my truck, you couldn't hear ANYTHING
