    "Wasted gas" is usually dictated by the use of the throttle. :)

    oh really. I understand from all the type of exhaust out there, u still waste gas no matter what. if you stay stock, your not getting the performance on the truck like you want. you gotta spend a bit to get what you want. lol I just wanted to know if trd n magnaflow is similiar

    Personally, I dont think it matters much. Borla, TRD, Magnaflow, are all good mufflers. I have seen the best gains with the Dynomax Super Turbo, but even then, the gain is only about 6 h.p..

    I agree.....mostly all the same regarding gains as the stock is not that restrictive anyway. Mostly it comes down to sound and looks.
