    I was looking at ordering a flowmaster 40 series delta flow for my 2005 2.7 tacoma. What should I select as the inlet and outlet pipe size? Should it be Center inlet ant Center outlet? Any thoughts or common on this muffler. Will I compromise MPG? Im looking for power increase, acceleration increase if possible. Any input is appreciated:)

    You won't see much to any performance gains from swapping a muffler. The most you're going to notice is a sound change.
    On the 4.0L the pipe size is 2.25" and the muffler has a center inlet and offset outlet.

    The guy at the muffler shop convinced me on this muffler called dt? I've never heard of it . So I ended up getting it for a good price . I regret it, It spunds like a ricer, my acceleration is slower, I'm definately dissapointed.

    I'm waiting on my pro dry filter to do the intake mid, if I don't see any improvements, that crap is going back!
