    So I have done a good bit of searching but couldnt find exactly what I'm looking for. I want to get an exhaust most likely single side exhaust. I want it to have a nice deep tone but I don't want it to be loud of have to much interior noise. Something that is quiet but has a nice growl. Does anyone have something like this? I know flow masters are loud and normally resonate in the cab a good bit just asking for opinions and options thanks for any help btw I have youtubed several video clips but it's hard to get a good idea from the poor clips thanks

    +1 on magnaflow, im running the 18" length body and its pretty quiet when cruising on the highway but around town it sounds nice, and when you have fun with the skinny pedal it will come to life and sound more sporty than anything at times.

    Not technically quiet just don't want a whole lot of annoying in cab noise from it. Kinda like something you really don't notice while cruising around but when u mash it you kno it's there

    I say the JBA. Fits that description nicely. On my girl's Xrunner. We ended up having all of the segments welded together a little later after install.

    Just keep in mind, that you don't want to try to go to cheap with your exhaust choice because it can end up not lasting. What I mean is, rusting.

    The only thing i don't like about the TRD exhaust, from a performance perspective, is that it has tubing diameter reductions. Right before the muffler.

    Being that you are paying top dollar for an exhaust, it should be all the same diameter as well as mandrel bent. The other brands on the market are like that, bit due to keeping shipping costs down, they segment them. Then you piece them together.

    Whatever your choice is, make sure it is 304 stainless steel. That way you will know that it will last the lifetime of the vehicle.

    Also, about the intake. My girl's XRunner made 225 whp and 260 something wtq, with an intake, and NonStopTuning pulleys. TRD, so basically the same as the AFe stage 2. :thumbsup:
