    I have been looking for a good exhaust that sounds good. I have been on numerous sites and read tons of reviews. I have been leaning towards either a Borla or Flowmaster. What would you recommend?

    To me i think you have to just find some guys that have those exhausts and listen to them up close. those sound clips never do it justice and if you choose one based off of a sound clip you will not get what you expect.

    you should stop by a shop that is doing some installs and see if you can listen to the end product when they are done. thats the best way to find out what you'll like in my opinion.

    All depends on what you like. No one can tell you what the best sounding one is it's all going to be your opinion. I have the TRD and like it, I also didn't want something real loud though which if that's what you want the TRD isn't for you.

    Right now I absolutetly love my exhaust sound.

    Doug Thorley long tubes, stock y-pipe with cats, stock catback with an aero 2525XL muffler.

    Its quiet while cruising at most speeds (very nice on the highway). But even with a little bit of throttle it will get most everybody's attention.

    I have a video of my setup on youtube when I was dumping the exhaust. I've re-added the tail pipe, and very pleased with the new sound, MUCH better.

    sounds indyish, much lower than a indy car sound. It's kinda funny it blew a head gasket. Well i think it's back to the old drawing board.

    I think Wicked Flow exhausts sound bad arse. Really high quality as well. Very reasonable price.:D

    People talk about those damn exhausts here and there... Where does a guy get a hold of one? I am torn between it and the Aero Turbine right now.
