Exhaust sound is about personal tastes.
I have a 18" Maggie welded into the stock system.
Sounds good to my old ears. It only cost me $75 installed.
Has some deepness and not too ricey. My next truck may get a TRD cat back
if I feel like spending the $500.
Yea basically i'm lookin to make my 4cyl sound like its a V6 or V8 in theory. . . definately don't want a fart can sound u here in the 'ricers' as i call them. Does the TRD exhaust really make that much difference?
I Installed A Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 Series On My Nissan Altima And It Has The 2.4l 4cyl. The Guys At Work Thought I Had A V6 In It Because It Gave It A Deeper Tone. I Also Installed Monza Style Ss Tips On It Which Helped Eliminate The Ricer Sound. I Am Planning To Install A Flowmaster On My 01 Taco But It Has The V6. I Noticed An Increase In Mpg After The Flowmaster Install As Well As A Little More Pep.
I'm not big on flowmaster anymore. Good sound? definately, but anyone i've had have rusted out at the pipe connections. My previous car, a 98' acura integra, had a flowmaster and it sounded AWESOME. everyone thought i did an modified engine swap or did A LOT of work the engine. lol, so yea i guess i'm leaning towards the Magnaflow SS cat-back. . . anyone ever hear one on a 4cyl tacoma?
