    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?

    I'm going down the same road. A Magnaflow muffler will be here in a few days. The mandrel bent stock pipes are plenty big enough for the slow turning 2.7. Should sound really neato with the header. :)

    Sorry I didnt see this before. Mine is center in offset out.


    A month after install I cant even remember how my truck was stock. The Magnaflow sounds soo good without drawing too much attention. If I could do it over again Id do it the same way.

    I welded in an Aeroturbine 2525 in place of the stock muffler and dumped it before the axle. It's been on for about a year now. I love the sound. No drone. You hear the exhaust note when you're cruising a little, but put your foot down and it sounds mean!

    I love the stainless that is magnaflow along with their sound. I've always loved flowmaster 40s. But i'll probably end up with a TRD because of powertrain warranties.

    question. Im looking at getting an flow master exhaust but I was wondering if the Cat-back System - Dual Side Exit - American Thunder part # 17432 for the 2012 Tacoma would fit my 2013 Tacoma. The flow master system for the 2013 Tacoma part is #817614. I don't see the reason to pay an extra $100 dollars for a system.

    that's roughly what the system cost. installation will cost you about another 200 plus is my guess. just to install my CAI they quoted me at 150

    I got a vibrant ultra quiet resonator and a 14 inch magnapack welded into the stock piping. It sounds LOW. Zero rasp and not much drone. It's pretty quiet in the cab but outside it's pretty loud. (I had someone do a flyby while I stood on the street. I also have trd intake.
