    I picked up a TRD catback today and im not really a fan of it. At lower rpm its louder than stock but only sounds like a loud drone and at higher rpm it sounds just like stock but louder. Im looking for something that is quiet at low rpm but loud at full throttle. So, which Magnaflow muffler would you recomend to achieve this?

    I had a catback Magnaflow on my 2zz-ge Corolla XRS and it was perfect. Not too loud and a great tone while driving normally, but really screamed at WOT near the rev limiter (8200rpm).

    I cannot recommend this muffler more. I've had it now on two Tacomas and love the subtle rumble in lower RPMs. It will come to life when you get on it. No drone when cruising at all. Your wants in a muffler is exactly where I was at. Check it out and report back.
