    I really like the TRD exhaust, but thats alot of cash. You should be able to get it for about $400.00 and install yourself.

    I've heard the URD exhaust in person and it sounds tough. That would be my choice.

    Chris, it was Coupe's xrunner. I think he had the quiet muffler. Sounded great with the TRD supercharger.

    I have driven V6 taco with TRD exhaust. The exhaust sounded amazing! In terms of gains, exhaust will gain you maybe 4-8whp, but thats it...

    Install it yourself to save cash, its super simple, unless you live in a climate where they salt roads very heavily...

    Super easy install. If you go with that deal, you'll be paying someone over two hundred bucks for something that will take you thirty minutes.

    I payed 130.00 for a magnaflow 18" oval can welded in. Sounds great now that I have a few hundred miles on it. Haven't had a loss in MPG either.

    I vote save the money and get a can welded in.

    The cheapest place I found when I just bought mine is shoptrd.com. $422 with free shipping. The other place selling it for $390 charges over $100 for shipping. I just got mine put on yesterday and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The sound isn't as deep as I thought it would be and it kind of drones between 25-35 mph, but on the highway you don't even notice its there.
