    TRD since it doesn't sound like a crappy chokemaster.

    So chokemasters are good for idling in a garage. Sweet bro!

    Anything but the chokemasters :)

    *cough* Aero Turbine *cough*

    But if you're already set on either the flowsmaster or TRD exhaust, I'd prefer the TRD one.

    I'm considering the TRD since it was designed by toyota for our trucks which are toyotas... but is there something that will provide more power and getter sound? well power is probable more important...

    i got the trd exhaust mainly because it doesn't drone at all. Plus its got a nice throaty sound and the trd etched tip

    If I HAD to pick between those two... :facepalm: I suppose I would go with the TRD. Neither of them will help with power at all, and neither sound particularly fantastic.

    My suggestions: Look into Wicked Flows, Aero turbine, Magnaflow, Dynomax, URD and the TRD if you absolutely have to have a packed muffler
