    4.0L is the V6. Are you sure everything is installed correctly?


    The 4.0 doesn't sound ricey if everything is installed correctly. It certainly doesn't sound like a V8, but it has a very pleasant, rasp free exhaust note. At least with the catbacks I've heard.

    ha mine sounds great. i got the center in offset out 2.125" and 4inch tip. dual pipes might make it sound that way and tip size......

    Yeah there are good sounding exhausts for the 4.0, but the flowmaster 44 is not one of them IMO. I don't like it loud though so its just personal preference.

    roomate has a origional 40 and sounds ricey due to it being dumped and the origional is louder than the 44 thats why i chose the more quiet of the 2

    Agreed...of the Catbacks I've heard, the Flowmasters have the most rasp...and rasp is what makes things sound rice.

    Go with TRD, Banks, or Magnaflow for a more subtle growl with less volume. All around, they just sound better.

    Crappy sounding V6 with a crappy muffler. Of course it will sound like crap.

    dont put a muffler designed for v8 sounds on a v6 motor.

    change the muffler it will fix the sound.

    You have...we all here have a small displacement, highly efficient V6-hell mine is the 3.4-a whopping 204 cubic inches. No way are ya going to achieve the sound your ear actually wishes for. A lot of guys here have gotten close though with the Magnaflow, Dynomax and others, but it is what it is and all your Flow is doing is taking that smooth exhaust pulse and dumping it sloppy because that muffler is so wide open. I personally hate the sound of v8s behind 2 chamber Flows because they have that ugly hollow borble. You CAN manipulate the sound you have with slant cut tips-they can null the rasp maybe just enough to be acceptable. Worth a try

    I think it's funny how some Tacoma owners can't comprehend the fact why their 6-cylinder vehicles from Japan sound ricey and don't sound like a V8. This is just beyond me. Our trucks are basically ricers with a bed as much as nobody wants to admit it.
