it sounds amazing! I thought it was just going to make the truck louder (which it did) but it also gave it more of a mellower, deeper tone. Idling, it definitely has more of a v8 sound to it and is no way ricey. When in the lower rpms, it has a very deep sound to it for a 6 banger but gets higher pitched when it gets into higher rpms. I really love this set up and its definitely turns heads. The only drawback is the interior resonance isnt for the light-hearted. I really dont mind the noise at all but before, I could crank up the radio and drone the flowmaster sound out, now, I can still hear it under the radio. I also took the truck on a highway just to see how it would do around highway speeds and it has a sweet spot right at about 70 mph. I really dont mind it but I wouldnt want to take a super long trip in it. All you can hear in the backseat is vroom vroom and not to mention you get a free foot message. I could have gone yet a step louder with an echo tip but that would have been unbearable in my opinion. The turndown also cleaned up the look of the truck by hiding the exhaust pipe and really adds some growl and takes away the rice. I reccomend this to anyone looking to add some muscle to their taco but the interior resonance isnt light. It definitely adds to the appeal of driving the truck. I'll try to see if I can get some vids of it but its kinda loud so I cant just go through my neighborhood like I did on the previous one with the pipe (it never got posted on here, Ill try to post both just to show what a big difference in a goodway the turndown makes) Happy motoring :clap:

Maybe this is a dumb question, but what do you mean turned it down before the axel?

Instead of running the tail pipe over the axle and out the side like it is stock you just dump it at the muffler just before the axle.

Oh okay so you would basically hack off the pipe makes sense.

lol, the difference it made was surprising. It really gave it a deep tone for a v6 at low rpms. Now that it's been a couple of days, I've grown to like it even more. Sorry I didnt get any vids up yet, today was a busy day but I'll see what I can do tomorrow. I do have a vid on my myspace of a friends' dual setup if anyone is interested in hearing it
