    Hi guys!

    Finally got some extra cash for a new exhaust i have been wanting for almost 2 years.

    I really wanted the TRD exhaust, my buddy has and it sounds perfect, but its 1600$ over here. No way im spending that much money for some sound. Im willing to spend 1000$ max.

    I have been looking at this Borla type s exhaust and the price is much better, around $950. I have read a lot on here that it is same as trd exhaust, is that true?

    Any of you guys running this exhaust and how do you like it? I want no drone in cab, since i take the highway a lot, and i dont want it to be super loud, something like trd exhaust.

    Now, before you guys say that i should get OVT instead and actually see some performance gains, i partly agree, but i really need some sound. Im still unsure about OVT. This engine is quiet and the exhaust is silent, i like to drive with loud music so i constantly have to watch my tach when i drive. Also, im very happy with how my truck drives, no complains except for the throttle response.

    Thanks for your help and i cant wait to install my new exhaust!

    man I'm sorry you say that i donated my TRD cbe to science and you coulda had it for free. of course that would be quite the drive.

    i do still have the tip. if you ever wanted it to add to whatever you get and could get it welded on, lemme know.

    Idk man. I had an exhaust on my 2nd gen and it was awesome the first day... then it drove me nuts. If you don't want drone at highway, hell, if that's even a concern, don't get one imo.

    Which exhaust did you have?

    I had magnaflow on my ranger and it was quiet unless i stepped on it, and no drone.
