    Yeah everything else is stock down there. I do have the trd intake also. It is actually pretty good. I can hear it echo off of buildings and guardrails and stuff so It is definitely loud the resonator just makes it real tame inside. I'm happy with it.

    I've been contemplating cutting the tailpipe after it comes down over the axle, I'm not sure if it would make it any louder

    It doesn't get that much louder but just a tad more noticeable in the cab.

    Does anyone with a TRD Catback have a quality sound clip? I've searched youtube and half of them sound great and the others sound like stock.

    I'm looking to get a throaty sound, something that makes it sound like a truck... not ricey. I don't want it to be too loud so that it annoys neighbors and sets off car alarms... but I do want it to sound aggressive when I get on it. Based on what I have read on TW I have it narrowed down to TRD and Borla. Any suggestions would be great!

    after reading every muffler post you can imagine and talking to a few muffler shops here. pretty much all of muffler shops told me that the flowmaster would be the loudest. I just wanted a little deep sound.
    I almost went with dynomax super turbo but Ive heard a lot of people saying its just a tad louder than stock.

    decided to go with magnaflow part #12256. took the guy about 45min for the install. pretty basic cut the stock muffler and replace with the magnaflow. deep sound, loud but not too loud.

    With the exhaust turn down. Couldn't it clogged or blocked by mud or snow and back up into the cab?

    Also isn't it a lot louder in the cab?
