    no no no no! my little brother put one on his 4 cyl sonoma, sounds absolutely horrible.

    Stick with magnaflow if all you care about is sound.

    Best way to make a 2.7L loud without sounding too ricey is to swap in a larger engine.

    I agree with the Magnaflow suggestion, though. That will be your best bet.

    It makes the truck sound faster.

    you could put a gigantic turbo on it, that would sound pretty cool

    not to get off topic here but does anyone have any idea about the auto tranny for my truck. i was just wondering how long they last typically and has there been any major problems with them when you put bigger tires and rims on it or just in general ?
    i just bought the truck from my grandfather for 2 thousand and it only has 90 thousand miles on it

    It really depends on how you drive it and how you maintain it.
