    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish)
    It wont. We had one on the caddy.

    Pretty much all I would consider for a catback at this point, except maybe a Borla s type for the taco. The current one in the charger can get irritating when cruising at certain speeds... it will be replaced with a corsa extreme(same sound we have now, no drone).

    Damn, I'm jealous! Any other brands you looked at, other than Corsa? I'd love to throw a Borla on the 6.2 but, since I love when the kids sleep for long trips, I don't think I'd ever do it.

    It's remarkable, how compact it's gotten. Now I just need to find my LOTR audiobooks and rip those on to the flash drive as well, and I'll have around 100 hours of nerd in my truck :laugh:
    And Happy Birthday, btw.

    MBRP, Flowmaster, and I did check out Borla and also db Sport (Corsa). I went this way since it is a lifetime warranty, no drone guarantee, and full 304 stainless

    That's what I've got on my Corvette. It sounds nearly stock unless I goose it a little. Sometimes I wish it was a little louder, but it's nice having to never worry if I'm going to get hassled for it.

    Yea that's pretty much why I went this way too, I do wish it was a little louder but I'm fine with it, it sounds nice

    And that would be fine. But it's also the difference between that tuner hum and what could be an all out assault on your ear drums that comes with some aftermarket exhausts when put behind a V8. I'm sort of torn, the cabin is so well sound proofed it's almost like what's the point of an exhaust. If I get something loud enough to hear in the cab, it's likely going to be obnoxious outside. When I really 'give it the beans', you can hear it in the cab anyways so I'm almost tempted to get an intake instead of an exhaust. Or... I could be a responsible adult, keep it stock and live vicariously through everyone else. I already do have a few 'functional' mods that I've done to make it stand out a bit.

    May want to look into the aFe intakes. I just put an aFe Super Stock intake on the Tundra as well :anonymous: (I got the Pro 5R drop in instead of the Pro Dry-S filter)

    Responsibility, what's that?

    An intake wouldn't be a terrible option, because you'd get some noise on acceleration and nowhere else. I am getting a bit old I guess in that I'm finding myself liking loud exhaust a bit less here and there. A bone stock truck with a stupid loud exhaust has turned into "really?" where 18 year old me would be like "cool!"

    Hot take incoming - I still have yet to hear a Tacoma with aftermarket exhaust that sounded good. Even the TRD exhaust they put on the 4.0L stock was enough to make me not want to purchase the Pro / Baja.

    That's sort of my thinking. It will stay stock under most driving conditions, until I really bury my foot in it, then I'll hear it. I still absolutely love the sound of a good exhaust on a V8, but towing has changed my view on wanting on for MY truck. Towing with a gasser, it inherently spends a lot of time in the higher RPM range and, while I like the exhaust note, I don't want to hear it for 4-6 hours on end. Same might happen with an intake, but I've found them to be a little more subtle.

    Back in my import tuner days (yeah yeah) I had an Accord with an AEM cold air intake and an A'pex-i World Sport 2 exhaust. The exhaust was whisper quiet at idle and only got loud in the higher RPM range (no fart cannon BS). The AEM would be louder than the exhaust but was a function of throttle position rather than actual RPM.

    Here's the one on the tundra. I get a whistle from about 10% to 20% throttle and after that it's all motor noise

    Hmmm.... that's good to know. With the F150, I'd tow in manual mode, lock it into 4th or 5th and have my foot at WOT. Keeps RPMs lower and let the engine use it's torque rather than rev the shit out of the engine. My current trailer is so light, I just let the F250 do it's thing in auto but, once we go with a heavier trailer, I'll likely be in the same position. I might want to rethink this...

    I saw a Tundy in front of my office yesterday that shoehorned a single stack LED light bar into that fake hood scoop at the front of the hood. It was very clean, I'll get a picture if I see it again but the guy was in his truck yesterday. Just giving you more ideas!

    I appreciate it! Just an idea to see if they have an intake for your truck. That one one sale was like $185

    Had Corsa on my GMC and it sounded the same.
    Have Borla 2 1/2 " duals off the headers on the Nova. She barks well.

    I'm with you here, although when I hear a crazy exhaust it's usually a ricer or a super duty with a huge lift...neither cars do it for me these days.

    I think on a nice v-8 they can work well. Its very hard to find a good sounding v-6, but I have seen borla put out some nice sounds. Most just throw out a shit ton of drone, which is good enough for some people, but isn't what i would want.
