    I have a 1999 4cyl Tacoma and I was wondering if it'd be a good idea to dual it out. Anyone else have a dialed out 4cyl and can tell me how it is? And how much would it cost?

    honestly youd be splitting your exhaust gasses in half with duals so u wouldnt even hear it unless u got louder mufflers even then its going to sound VERY ricey at higher RPMs. try cutting your exhaust after the cat about 2-3 feet back and see how you like that. mines a 6cyl but at idle sounds great

    You will probably loose power by going to dual exhaust because the turbulence caused by splitting the pipes will f-up your backpressure. A six cylinder might have dual exhaust because there are two manifolds but it is pointless on a 4-banger. Also it will sound super shitty. Get a new muffler if you want better sound, dynomax or magnaflow are popular. They are around $40 if you do it your self, $100 to have the shop do it. And get a header if you can afford it.

    or go the free route and just cut of the exhaust

    See I know nothing about the whole exhaust ha. I'd most likely go to a shop, what all would make a 4cyl sound pretty good?

    For opinion sake, no, dual exhaust on Tacomas just don't fit or do it for me. They look out of place. Like others have said, there's a good chance it could end up making less power with that configuration anyway.

    For me at least when it comes to the an exhaust on a Tacoma, it's all about being hidden.

    I did a dual back and I honestly hated it, it sounded like shit mostly because it sounded like a Honda civic coming up the road, then I switched it to a Flowmaster 50 muffler in to a down fire tip and I love the sound of it to, sounds real good when your on it. I would recommend the Flowmaster super 44 over the 50 becuase my friend has it and it sounds some much louder then mine.

    It wouldn't be true dual just straight pipe and then two that come out each side, is that what you're talking about? And alright I'll look into the flow 44. Doesn't sound too ricey does it?

    i would say no, you most likely could look it up on youtube, i think it sounds good i have never heard the 44 with a dual exhaust so if you are going dual then i couldnt tell you, if you want to make it deeper there a air intake, i have a k&n on mine i love it, it makes it deeper sounding and it makes it sound amazing.

    I have duals on mine. its just a y pipe but i personally think it looks and sounds good. I've always been a fan of dual exhaust though.
