    I am running a flowmaster 40 series in mine. It is worlds better than stock and has a good tone. I was used to a 40 series on a 93' 4runner with 3" piping and that thing sounded way mean, so thinking i'm going to try to figure out how to make my tacoma sound a little bit louder. I just bought mine and had it installed through local Les Schwab, it was about 140 for the muffler if i remember right, and they forgot to charge me installation so that always helps :)

    I have the flowmaster 40 series and it does make a big difference, I really like it. Didn't affect performance that I noticed..

    i have the flowmaster 40, some claim flowmasters actually rob you of hp, dynomax and aeroturbine are good for our trucks.

    I have the Flowmaster Super 44 series w/ the stock 2" piping and it does make a HUGE difference in sound. However, a buddy of mine has a 40 series on his Ford Ranger w/ 2.25" piping and it sounds a little deeper than my 44 series. Look into the Super 40 series. I hear they sound different than the regular 40 series. I got my Flow from truckchamp.com. From what I researched, it was the cheapest. Good luck brotha!

    I did not know that. :confused: Thanks for the info bro. Saves me from spending more money on a bigger exhuast pipe. However, would you recommend 2.50"? Loss in low end/ high end torque? That, and in my opinion I think the Super 44 has a higher pitch sound and I REALLY DON'T WANT IT TO SOUND LIKE A RICER if I go with a bigger exhaust pipe!

    I have a FM40 but not by choice, it came on the truck. As it's always been, FM is known for good sound. You want nice sound get a FM, if you want performance get something else. I would have choose a Borla.

    I went with magnaflow on my 06 and love it. I think it has a better tone than a flowmaster. My local shop charged me 220 for the muffler and the tip.
