    I just put an 18 inch Borla on my 3.4 last week and it sounds real nice. A bit quiet if you're looking for something loud though. I'll try to get a video up tomorrow.

    On the other end of the spectrum @jeepsrwack @AdeptFox. On my PreRunner I used to run the 50 series flowmasters. They sounded mean, but you could hear me coming down the street. Depends how loud you want to go. 40/44 series Flowmasters are a good way to go too. I've heard the Magna Flows are just as nice though.

    Have you done the Youtube searches for these? That actually helped me pick which exhaust I wanted. Most people do idles, drive-bys, and start-ups for the exhaust.

    Listen to what they sound like on surround sound haha. Hopefully more people chime in on this as I know there are so many different ways to go on this.

    If that's not an option, look into the Aeroturbine 2525XL. I considered one for a time, then realized what a waste of money noisy mufflers are.

    Yeah I tried that and pretty much narrowed it down to the magnaflow and aero. Leaning more towards magnaflow now

    My neighbor @Mademan925 is running a MagnaFlow on his 2014 Tacoma I believe. I like how it sounds too, but Idk what particular Magnaflow it is.

    So I decided on the magnaflow 12256 which is the 18 inch. From all the reading people say the 24 inch is just slightly louder. I figured what's the point if you could barely even hear it. As long as it doesn't drone I'll be good.

    Good choice. I would have gotten that same Magnaflow if I didn't get the Borla for $55 shipped.

    I guess I'm just getting old and curmudgeonly. Spend that money on your 401k, damnit! :p

    You should let us know what you think about your new exhaust when you get it on.

    Yeah buddy! I loved my 50 series in my PreRunner. I'm planning on getting that with the reroute exhaust.

    Yeah after listening/watching other videos, the flowmaster is the one that sounds different and distinct from all the others. Can't wait to get it installed

    I am of the mindset that if it doesn't have 8 cylinders then it doesn't need it. Only v6 I've ever heard that sounded decent was a mustang and it had long tube headers, catless h pipe, and flow master super 40s on it. If you have your heart set on it however borla is top notch stuff but expensive
