    Hi, my name is Brian and I'm new here. I have a 2006 tacoma 2.7 4x4 and I am looking at changing the muffler to somthing a little louder but dont want to spend alot of money. what size muffler do I need? and length of it? trying to keep it simple just cut and clamp I dont want to have to add in extra piping and such.
    Also any good intakes out there?
    Thanks in advance

    Hey man, welcome.

    Having the same ride as you, i know what you mean about sound. There are a ton of threads out there, so just do a little searching. Go to the tuning page, and there is a thread with a lot of clips as well.

    As for size, any shop would be able to tell you the size of your muffler.

    On personal preference, a lot of the mufflers out there end up sounding rice. There is a guy with a Thrush welded muffler on his 5lug, which i LOVE. When i bit the bullet, thats what i would get.

    For intakes, not too too much out there for the 4bannger, but AFE seems to be popular around here.

    Someone on here a few weeks back posted a vid clip for their gibson exhaust on their 2.7, and it sounded really bad-ass.

    hey man welcome,

    well there are alot of options out there i personally love magnaflow thats what i have on my truck (08 2.7L) i think it sounds great i have alot of people talling me they like the sound. i forget the size of mine but i can figure that out easy for you if youd like.

    so here is a vid of what it sounded like right after i got it put on. but at the moment i have the magnaflow muffler, knn intake, and DT headers i think the combo sounds really good. anyway here is the vid hope it helps out.
