    Ok, i have a 97 4 cylinder toyota tacoma and i put a new muffler and tip on it. It sounds pretty good to me but it just dont sound like a truck should. It sounds more like a car. Would anybody like a truck that sounds like a car? I'll post a video up soon. Leave some comments or suggestions, Thanks.

    Uhhh no. It will sound even more like a ricer and you will lose low end power.
