    Optima Red Top 34R, OME 885 / N140S + 5100 rear, TSB leaf pack, Camburg Ball Joint UCA, Wheelers Diff drop, AEM Brute Force Intake with filter wrap, Summit Super Turbo muffler, Llumar 5% tint, Pioneer single din head unit, PIAA 510 Ion Crystal Fogs in stock location, Sonar LED tails. Sway Bar removal. Charcoal filter delete. Stant 11509 Locking Gas Cap.
    My personal suggestion is a Magnaflow will sound raspy on a 1GRFE, go with a FM 50 if you want it not too loud. I have a Super 40 dumped behind the rear axle and it sounds deep enough. I know other people will have different things to say and thats fine!

    I have heard many and I only really like the Magnaflow which is why I have it on mine. The flowmasters seem to just drone and I drive long distances so I did not want that, the TRD to me sounded to close to stock, seems like the engine noise is louder.

    Some people say it will and I will tell you no it wont because you will want to hear it and drive in a way you can hear it which is not MPG friendly ;)

    I have the Magnaflow SUV muffler and it sounds great, not too loud and doesn't drone at highway speed. When you get on it, it sounds great and good power too.

    i have my flowmaster 40 on my tacoma and its nice and loud, just the way I like it. The 50 was designed to reduce interior resonance. It will give an aggressive tone on the outside while you won't hear as much in the cab. which in my opinion wasn't worth it because I wanna hear as much as a can.
