    You wont gain any mpg's or HP off of a catback system. Nothing noticeable anyway

    This is exactly what happened to me. Loved the sound right after I installed the exhaust, but wasn't in love with the drone at low rpm's under load. After a month the drone is completely gone. I wish that the original "bark" was still there, but now that the drone is gone I have zero complaints.

    I never had any drone, just a buzzing sound now gone. and as far as the original bark I am told that the sound will deepen when more time is put on the exhaust....could't be happier though, for once I got the exhaust right on the first try:)

    I guess some people would say the buzzing was drone but it wasn't hard to explain

    Installed the TRD CAI, and Cat back exhaust when I bought truck new in '06.
    I also added a tonneau cover, for long deadhead trips. Truck now has 227,024 miles, and the biggest performance difference is the mid-range acceleration (45 to 80mph). Plus the sound is awesome. The only vehicle with better sound is the LFA. I have had zero problems with either system.
    I use my truck for pilot car/escort for oversize loads. Large equipment, wind mill stuff, and oil field stuff. Many goat trails and rough terrain, with no clearance problems. My CAI is the first edition, and like the CAI, no problems.

    Good addition to the truck, and when I add another Tacoma to my little company, it will be equipped also.

    I am thinking about getting the TRD Exhaust, but I was wondering how easy it is to install? Or would I have to pay to get it installed in a shop? I am not too mechanically inclined, but I an handle a little bit.

    Really easy, just a couple of bolts and rubber hangers.

    It's best for you to drop the spare tire so you'll have more room to angle the exhaust out so you don't have to cut the exhaust. Spray the hangers with wd40 so they can slip off easier. Everything else is pretty much basic.
