I put the MBRP on my DCLB a little over a month ago. I was instantly pleased, and wouldn't change a thing after about 1k miles on the exhaust its perfect (in my opinion).

yes sir. it's 206 right now... $207.34 https://amzn.to/2IVwHNF

prices keep changing

Hmmm... for less than $200 you say... interesting:unsure:

Good to hear. I have a theory since it has 13 inches longer of pipe it helps mellow out the tone too.

I'm sure this is a factor. A buddy has the same exhaust on his ACLB and doesn't seem quite as happy with his as I am...yet.

I used to read and hear magnaflow of being a quieter deeper sounding exhaust (personal experience) but they made it loud on the taco.

Then I thought the mbrp would be ridiculously loud but it's not.

No i do not. Honestly i think it had a lot to do with me cutting off exhaust under rear seats it was so damn loud inside and not as loud outside. But id rather have a chopped tailpipe then exhaust

My MBRP will be arriving tomorrow. I decided to take a chance after seeing Rob Daman 's video (as well as other on youtube).

I searched for a TRD Pro exhaust but, just didn't feel like spending all that extra money. lol....

I wish I could hear a Black Widow exhaust setup in person.

Let me know what you think?

Side note: TRD Pro owner at my job likes my exhaust. He feels his is too quiet. It just depends on what you're looking for. ✌️

I'm not a spring chicken and I it's tolerable for me but I've set a few alarms in the parking garage. lol

You're driving with windows up or down?

I really think it’s just the shock from going from a super quiet to a pronounced exhaust note.

It’s 100 degrees here, so I’ve driven with the windows up and down.
Windows up isn’t bad.
Cruising at 55-60, you don’t even really notice it, which really surprised me.

My kids and wife say it “just sounds like a truck”. Lol

I’m going to leave it on for at least 1k miles and see how I feel about it.

Sounds like you don't have drone at cruising speed so that's the biggest thing that drives me mad.

Now you have a "truck" lol

You mind taking a video of yours?

How much more expensive is the TRD one?

MPG GAINS - First I swabbed out the standard air filter with a k&n performance filter for $60 here on amazon to increase the air intake. This is supposed to increase how much air the engine can take in, therefore breathing easier to provide improved MPG performance. The air filter and exhaust combined have increased my standard daily driving MPG from 19 to 24. This is also as I have adapted to my trucks new power band.
From a review on Amazon. That has to be bullshit, no?
