    I have an 08 with the TRD CAI (old style) and the TRD Cat-back exhaust. I love my sound. Deeper and throaty, but not roaring unless you mash the pedal.
    No in cab humming either.

    Had mine installed yesterday and I love the sound, not too extreme or ricey sounding but a nice deep sound and very little cab drone. Probablly just my imigination but it does feel a little more peppy on take off, probablly just the sound of the muffler, LOL.

    Did anyone notice a slight increase in MPG's? I "heard" they give you a little more HP and a little more miles per G's. Anybody have a vid/audio of how it sounds?

    Thnx for the 411 on the TRD Cat Back. Dealer was sayin' it did give ya a little bump in mpg's. Trying to search for an audio of the toyo TRD Cat Back but all I have found is the flowmaster 40&50. I guess they 'sound' similar to the TRD brand (single pipe on a 4.0 4WD). Hope this 2012 treats me right. The '09 F150 I had....I was not impressed.

    I got 1 mpg better with my dynomax muffler, wasn't the intened purpose. Im sure the trd is about the same. Also during the search youll find a link to a site that sells the trd for 350 ish.
