    Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone here has cut out their catalytic converters out their V6 4.0L tacomas, and if so, how does it sound?

    Also, I have a 2wd PreRunner, and I want to put some BFG rugged trail tires on my truck, what size are the ones that come on the TRD off road tacomas, and can i mount them on my rim on my PreRunner?


    Thanks

    you can remove the 2 rear cats and weld in straight pipes for some more tone and a little better flow...sounds decent too. as for tires.....265/75/16(or the equivalent 17) is biggest you can go without a lift.

    the tires that are on the offroad tacomas are either 245/75/16 or 265/70/16

    More exhaust tone. You'll still have the other 2 to help the environment.

    Old, Old, Old, Old Thread...:typing: Buuuut... Would you be able to tell a lil difference if you just cut one cat?

    I don't like a loud exhaust-but it would be nice to hear SOMETHING lol.
