    Hey Guys,

    I know this has been posted over and over, but i wanted to know what i could do with my rig without it costing an arm and a leg.

    My muffler is giving way, i can always replace it. But i wanted to have dual exits anyway, so this is a good excuse to follow that route, and at the same time get something which sounds good.

    Because i am in Canada, the rust issue has developed only on the muffler, the rest of it seems okay even though its probably going to rust out anyway.

    What sort of exhaust setup can i get that will give me functional Dual Exits (without losing any power, or causing any problems)

    Also what can i do to prevent this system from rusting out other then have it sprayed with the black tar stuff.

    Single cat, single muffler, twin tails --> something along these lines

    What options are available to me without significant alterations, meaning that just cut or remove back part (sorry i don't have the correct terms), or replace some aspect of my stock exhaust to accommodate a dual exit style that would result in improved cosmetic value (for me) and increase the Grunt (sound).

    Would it be better to simply do a complete refit ? because stock and aftermarket parts may be incompatible ?

    I am really confused, and my mechanic isn't of much help. All i want is good looks and greater sound, without messing shiz up.

    Please help

    Afraz:(

    P.s

    This is a 2003 Tacoma Double Cab 3.4 4x4 with all the fixings, completely stock except for headlights, tailights, tires/rims.

    Also, it doesn't matter if the dual "exits" are on either side of the vehicle as opposed to being run all the way back. But if i could have them go all the way back, without having to remove the spare tire it would be PERFECT !!!

    Honestly, you get nothing with duals, especially if you run one muffler w/ a dual outlet.

    High flow cat + a 14'' magnaflow dumped over the rear axles gives the best sound on these truck.

    just my .02 cents

    Rust?

    Replace the system with stainless.

    That will help.

    When they are salting the roads, do not store the truck in a heated garage. Heat speeds the corrosion process.
    FREQUENT washing of the underside.

    Rust is just a fact of life in northern climates, and why used vehicles from the "Sunbelt" command much higher prices than those from northern areas.

    Mind elaborating on this ? what is this ? where do i get it ? what parts do i need ?

    Are there any videos on youtube of folks with this setup ?

    All i know is that i was at university and this guy who had some old pimped up SUV i think it was a Chevy, had thundering sound so loud i could feel it in my body even though i was a good 100 Meters away.

    Maybe that's not the best way to go for my truck, but i want enough oomph to turn heads but not annoy people or myself while driving.

    It is highly unlikely that you could ever get the sound from your Tacoma that that chevy had, my 71 with the 454 had duals and it would set off car alarms as it passed. The advice you are getting is pretty good, stick with the single, dual outlets may look good but they do nothing. A good catback system is your best bet and you can save even more by just getting the muffler that produces the tone you want and a good manderl bent tailpipe. You could go to Youtube and do a little searching for various sounds, lots of people have posted there and if you do a search for exhaust you will probably find plenty of links in this forum.

    High flow mufflers only give you more sound no improvement in mpg or performance,if you want it louder there ya go, other than that a waste of money.

    I had dual rear exit on last truck, it looked awesome (like my stang) but I crushed one side flat going through a ditch type affair. Sooo if offroading is in ur future I would stay away from rear exits.
