    It's kind not either way. It will more than likely create more backpressure in the system. If you can afford to, buy a new super 40 that is single exit and reuse the old tail pipe.

    I would say no, but I'm am not a Toyota engineer. What size are the tailpipes? If one is equal to the same size as stock then I wouldn't worry about it.

    You won't blow anything up.

    Its possible power and mpg could take a hit. Or not. That part you'll find out later

    can you do it in such a way that its only temporary? Then you can run a couple tanks of gas through it and see how it goes then decide if you want to uncap it or not.
