    Quick question?
    Is $399 a good deal for a TRD Catback system?
    Its wicked expensive here in Canada but I found it for $399 in the US and can have it shipped to NY and pick it up there.

    Mine was $350 for a Magnaflow (single) exhaust and stainless tip...so $399 is a lil bit much...is it a double?

    Boy ,not many care for the Borla. Had one on my 94 4Runner. sounded subtle but nice. good quality. So I guess it doesn't thrill folks?

    and for all of you contemplating getting the TRD, its pointless. its basicly the same pipe as stock, and they use the same tech as magnaflow. save the money and just get a magnaflow muff and get a weld on tip, save the money for something more productive like gas for offroading.

    Ive relized our small displacement V6s don't sound that great. My buddy at school has a ZR2 S10 with the 4.3, he thinks it has a flowmaster 40 on it, it sounds so sexy. I swear it sounds just like a V8 when he starts it up and a lower rpm.

    Wish mine sounded that good:(

    The install is simple. It can be annoying trying to get it under the truck TAPE UP THE TAIL PIPE! Or you will scratch the shit out of the TRD exhaust and your paint. And tape the tail pipe of your old exhaust before you take it out. I would say it took 45 minutes to install.

    I picked up a TRD Cat-back on craigslist for $40! The install was simple and it's got a nice sound. Nothing too loud, just enough to hear it when you step on it.

    Magnaflow 18" muffler with stock piping. I plan to get an oval tip on it.

    Sound is nice and deep, exactly what I was hoping for. 500 miles later and it's much deeper and a bit louder than when I first installed it. Gets better every time I drive. I love the growl I get on start up.

    Glad to hear it gets a little louder once it breaks in, I was slightly disappointed when I first fired it up. Is yours the offset in, center out?
