    so i have a double cab tacoma 2010 looking to put some more torque on it. i was thinking flo master maybe even duals with a k&n air filter. dont know if thats the best match maybe you guys can help me with a better set up. i also like the sound of a k&n sounds like an exhaust but i guess it wouldnt matter if i had an exhaust

    and also would it be cheaper to go to shop and buy and have installed or me do it myself. is there any welding needed for exhaust, ive heard for exhaust sometimes is needed

    Flowmaster sucks *^&!! They don't breathe well and fall apart if you go over too many bumps...

    I've had a great experience with my set-up: Magnaflow single outlet and K&N Filtercharger (Yes you need to be careful with the oil)...Sounds awesome too!

    thank you both for the help. sorry for making your fingers hurt wolfpack lol.
    im just looking to put some more torque on my truck for when im pulling a trailer with quads and eventually a rhino or razor my uncle was telling me.

    for the urd cold air which specific one would u recommend and also what about maybe a trd air intake? i hear those are good and will also pull of the fender as the stock does.

    i was also looking at magnaflow and borla but which one do u prefer of magnaflow and why is catback so popular and what makes it different

    is it true u get better mpg with an exhaust and/or air intake because better air flow?

    and what about a banks exhaust? would it be better then going with a magnaflow?

    well dam then i might as well just do some little things to this truck and get another truck for hauling. ok so hauling it out of mind lol :( well at least trying to make power for it lol

    so then if i just get an exhaust for crusin should i get a magnaflow i guess thats what is better recommended?

    I would suggest the 4" deck plate width a K&N drop in filter and larger diameter intake tube. As for exhaust go with Magnaflow. It depends if you want loud or something quiet. I have a BAmuffler and it's probably the best muffler I have ever owned!
