    I am looking for a muffler for my ’03 Taco 4X4 that has less restriction to improve my power and mileage.
    If it makes more noise, that’s OK too.
    Has anyone found a muffler that generated these results?
    Thanks.

    Oh and no mileage/power difference...except my butt dyno thought the 3RZ accelerated a little quicker w/ the Flowmaster.

    You don't really care, do you.
    I have the Aero Turbine 2525 and I love it. It is a straight pass-through muffler (yes, you can see straight through it) that creates its own vortex and actually helps draw air out of it instead of air being pushed through it. Tell me that won't increase your air flow! Plus, I love the throaty sound it has on my V6. Highly recommended.

    my Flowmaster 40 series sounds pretty good, its not to loud when just driving normal but if i come on to it you can definitly tell theres a flowmaster under ya. its hard to say if it gave much more power or even if the mileage changed from stock to aftermarket. no noticible numbers anyway.
