OEM-ish sounding muffler?

    My Bosal muffler (which is supposed to be OEM replacement) is good and all, but it makes this really annoying hum noise around 2k RPM. I'm looking at possibly getting a Walker SoundFX to replace it or something similar. I want it to be close to OEM sound, I don't mind if it's just a tad louder than OEM.

    Any thoughts?

    I've heard that the dynomax super turbo 20in case sounded very much like stock.

    I had the same issue. Replaced my leaking oem with a "oem" wed on muffler and it drones at low speed. Probably going to buy an oem muffler from any type of tacoma and weld it on.

    Mine doesn't drone, it actually sounds really quiet. It just has an annoying hum sound, like a low whistling noise. Kinda like when you blow into an empty beer bottle.

    I may give this one a try.

    Add in a glasspack muffler to act as a resonator. Should be super quiet then.

    Yeah it's really annoying. I think I'm gonna get that Dynomax one. It's worth a $55 shot anyways.
