    So i got a '13 Tacoma with the v6. (Yes it's a PreRunner, and i don't really care because i could still hang with most 4x4's on the trails here.) Anyways, i want to know you guys' opinions! I want something loud, deep, cheap, and not a muffler that sounds like a burrito on steroids. This is my first motor that isn't a v8 so i have no clue! :confused: Sorry if this has been answered before.

    I have a borla cat back and it has a nice tone, it isn't the loudest, but it grabs a bit of attention. If you want a roaring V8 sound you will never get it, the Borla sounds aggressive but does not have any Drone or ricey sounding shit of a normal six cylinder civic. If you want to demand attention from a couple blocks down this will be a little too quiet, but people turn their heads when I drive by. Idle isn't very loud either. It opens up when giving even a little throttle though.

    Stock. A V6 will never sound like a V8, so don't bother wasting the money. Put it in a retirement account.

    I have an MBRP and love it. Coming from a Flowmaster 50, then a FM 10, then straight pipes, then to a Cherrybomb Extreme and ended up with the MBRP.

    Not too loud but a very nice tone on idle and the closest exhaust for the Tacoma to a small block V8 (IMO) on startup because of the low rumble. Almost no drone at highway speeds.

    I heard an exhaust on an xrunner at slamfest at the alachua county fair grounds and liked it, never got around to asking the owner what it was

    I'm saying it doesn't scream from 5 blocks away...? I put on exhaust for a performance standpoint, and the borla exhaust gives a little tone but isn't obnoxious, IMO.
