    Hey guys, Im new to toyota world.
    I have a 2001 toyota tacoma w/ the 3.4 v6.
    Its 4wd and runs great.

    Just put a flowmaster s40 on it and it sounds great.
    Was just wondering what anybody else recomended for modifications?

    Intake?
    Headers?

    One more quick question. I got the flowmaster s40 with new bigger piping and I noticed it kind of has a burn smell to it? My buddies told me it is just breaking in and it wont last long but id figure a second answer would help.

    thanks
