    i just put a flowmaster 40 series on my 08 tacoma v6.... i think it sounds sick cruising around 1500 rpm's (low deep growl) but when i get on it and its around 3 grand i think it kind of has a gay twangy ricey kind of tone... im wondering if the muffler will "break in" and eventually sound better, has anyone realized a change in tone after a while, and if it will break in about how long will this take?

    LMAO!!! "gay twangy ricey..." LOL!

    Sry i can't speak for the flows, but I put the TRD on mine, and the higher the RPM, the sicker the sound especially with load...

    Yeah thats what I thought and its the reason I bought it so it wouldn't be too loud in the cab. But then again my lil girl is 6 and boy is 12. He doesn't mind but she always says it too loud when she's concentrating on her gameboy puppies.

    not a stupid question........the muffler has baffles........which kinda deflect sound off one another, which gives it that growl.

    oh...gotcha. maybe she'll grow into the sound.:D

    i have true dual exhaust on my 65 dodge with the 40 series. They sound AMAZING at low rpm and are designed to kind of shut down when your rev heightens.

    its the chambers in the muffler itself that is what gives it its tone and helps with the function of the muffler

    do you have a manual or automatic. I had the flow 40 with my 6speed and it did get a little ricey in the higher rpms especially with a intake.
