    I want new exhaust for my 97 Tacoma. I want a new cat all the way back. Anyone know of a good flowing system but cheap?

    Just getta new aftermarket muffler. New "Cat Backs" can be pricey and with your truck being a 2.7 there may not be much of a power gain ya know? Try a flowmaster 40 muffler or maybe even a super 44 for a lil more of an aggressive sound :)

    well my truck has 214xxx miles. The reason I wanted a cat back is because that's alot of miles on a converter. They do clog over time. Plus I figured all new piping at tHe same time would be nice.

    Hey neslerrah,

    I noticed that you have a Dynomax Super Turbo 17748. I have one sitting in my room waiting to go up.

    Although you have a 2nd gen, how do u like it? Any increase in MPG or HP?

    I have the same muffler and I don't know it might give you 1 extra horsepower But the gas mileage might increase by 2 miles if you luck and keep your foot off the gas.

    There has been an increase in MPG by 1.5 MPG. There is a better throttle response when I accelerate. My Tacoma sounds good. There is a sound clip in my build thread.
