    would I be able to run a flowmaster muffler on stock exhaust pipes? Any information is greatly appreciated!

    I have done it with the old V6 (3.4L) I had a flowmaster 40 series put in. I thought it sounded nice. I would not recomend any more open (loud) of a muffler. I did get some cab drone with just the muffler on. Go with a 50 series if you want something a little quiter/less drone.
    I have since installed headers and removed my cats. The cab drone went away (?) when I did that. Sounds real nice.

    i have a 98 2.7l taco. i am wanting exhaust. I have been looking all over the net and can find that the flowmaster 50 series might be the best option. can anyone please make a recommendation. I don't want my truck to drone. i want a nice little note. i would rather leave it stock than have it drone.

    flowmaster 50 series should be ok.....little to no drone.......but i think tha dynomax super turbo muffler would sound great on your truck....and you'd get a lil power gain out of it too.

    i really am a dyi guy. I am thinin i can just buy the muffler and use some exhause clamps and do it that way.

    All diesels come that way, what do you think.

    I hate exhaust clamps. I used them on my exaust and the first time I hit 4000 rpm the backpressure popped it off and I was running open headers. I took it to a mom and pop exhaust shop and they charged me 65 to weld it in 3 places, fixed another guys weld (a flange) and put a hanger on. For something as simple as a muffler you might not have any problems though. My exhaust work was a little more extensive.
