    i put on moto metal 950 chrome wheels,afe cold air intake,flowmaster muffler with dual exhaust,JBA headers,trifold extang bed tarp,stainless steel stepside bars,3" lift in front,3" lift in the rear,chrome door handle covers,chrome grille insert cover, tinted windows with blacked out visor, and taillight covers
    i am going to put headers on my 08 tacoma 4.0 L and i am wondering if it would make my check engine light stay on if I cut off the resevoirs on both sides after the catylast converter. i heard it is what makes it quiet and i want a muscle sound. i already have flowmaster 40 series and afe cold air intake on it. i was trying to find this out before i have the headers done so they can do it all at once.

    I think you mean resonators. If you take those out the CEL won't come on but you will get a super raspy sound. Also sorry but a V6 will never sound like muscle.

    i had a 98 tacoma with cold air intake,throttle body spacer,a header, magnaflow catylac converter, flowmaster muffler, and it sounded pretty close people knew when you pass by their house without looking out. it sounded close.
