    Hey guys I am looking at getting a Cat-back exhaust for my 06 4.0 v6 taco and im having a really hard time deciding between the original 40 and the 50 i would get single in double out. I am looking for something that is deeper on the outside but not loud at all on the inside although i would like to hear it in the cab i just dont want it to get annoying down the highway. I dont want any "ricey" sound at all. And like everyone else want to be able to punch it and hear that nice deep sound. I have looked at all the sound clips everywhere but i want to hear from personal experience in actually hearing them in person. Thanks for any help!

    I have the 50 series catback with dual exits.

    It's not quiet in the cab. You'll have some noise in the cab. Honestly? It sounds somewhat ricey in the cab. It doesn't sound ricey at all on the outside the cab. It sounds pretty good outside the cab. Not too loud, just right (IMO). I think it sounds better at low rpm's than higher ones.

    Here's a video off Youtube - exterior.... and they sound about right.

    Here's an interior clip.... kinda hard to say if that's similar to mine or not.

    I don't mind it at all....much better than the quiet stock exhaust. After the truck is warmed up and you're sitting at idle, sometimes you can't hear the exhaust at all.

    I was wondering the same thing, from what I have listened to online, not that reflects actual results, the magnaflow seems to be a bit smoother and have less of the groggly sound.
