    If you are stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to decide which exhaust set up or muffler to throw on....here are two sounds I like

    Spintech and Banks

    Spintech: http://videos.streetfire.net/Player.aspx?fileid=9F71CCAD-1A3D-4D27-A024-EE5606C7A574

    Banks: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/attachments/new-members/26d1161756760-hello-tacoma-w-taco-banksexhausttacoma4.0.wav

    If the Banks doesn't work....go here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/new-members/111-hello-tacoma-w-taco.html

    hopefully this thread slows down the redundancy (even tho this thread is posted over and again)

    drive safe!

    In my opinion.....I don't like the Borla exhaust at all on the 4.0L tacoma. The TRD exhaust sounds good....I think the dealer is charging like $500 or somthing. Be careful where you buy your exhaust because some people will sell other companies exhaust for cheap and have no authorization to do so...and you get no warranty.

    If you don't want to spend a lot of money, the spintech muffler is a good choice.

    did you buy online from banks site? or somewhere else? Cuz I believe Banks doesn't authorize anybody else to sell their products, voiding the warranty. What you pay?


    Lady05taco - if you can....buy instore....but if you don't live in SoCal shipping isn't that bad.

    not sure If I can name companies but I was looking at performance products 4 trucks.com @ the banks exhaust for the Tacoma dlb cab s/b listed for $449.95 and they are running a 10% discount for orders over $150

    *Free ground shipping applies to Continental US and UPS Ground Shipping only

    so it all came out to $404.95...

    TACOMA PRERUNNER ALL 2005-06 DOUBLE CAB, 60.3 INCH BED V6 4.0L FI

    I got the factory TRD one and it is awesome. Invoice for it I think was $500 but if you go to any dealership you could probably get it for less.
