Exhaust is such a subjective topic. I had the MBRP high clearance version on my old rig and it droned so badly on the highway that we let it go with the truck when we traded it in rather than swapping it over. For the new truck, I just did high clearance mods to the stock exhaust and the whole family is much happier. I prefer having more intake noise than exhaust noise on a V6 anyways, and that's exactly what I have now with the OEM muffler and an Airaid intake. It's quiet cruising and has just enough growl to not sound like you're driving a Camry until you get higher in the RPM range.

That being said, I think the best sounding and most balanced exhaust for these trucks is actually the TRD one, and it's the only TRD accessory I actually think is worth a shit. I wish I could buy just the muffler, but they only sell it as a complete system and I don't want to pay for the whole thing just to turn around and cut it up.

I have no idea, you'd have to check with Airaid on that.

I run MBRP with the black powder coat option. Sounds great.

I have a Borla 40665 Muffler and I dumped the tip over the rear axle. It seems like this is pretty similar to the muffler on the TRD Exhaust. The sound is really mild driving around town, but when passing or grinding up a hill at about 2,800 RPM its definitely there. That being said it is much quiter than the MBRP systems I've heard.

Yea I’ve heard the same exact opinions on the borla as well but overall there both awesome exhaust for these trucks just depends if you want a more tame one or a more out of control exhaust lol

I believe the valve and y pipe was around $230 for parts. I dont remeber exactly what the shop charged me but it was around $150 for the re-eoute. I did the wiring.

Driving a 4 banger Tacoma with a AFE MACH Force-Xp 2-1/2"-3" Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System, Its loud enough if you floor it past cars in a parking lot it sets off alarms. :)

It’s definitely got more power and fuel efficiency vs stock

But it's dumping right after the axle because it wouldn't fit around my 35" tires under the bed. Sounds pretty good, doesn't drone, maybe a touch too loud for my preferences, but it is echoing under the truck. It was quieter when it exited out the back, but was into the tire quite a bit.

I noticed zero differences in fuel economy or power (y)
Interesting. I’ve been wondering if the stock exhaust would get much louder when I cut it at the axle during my high cleareance bumper install. I would prefer it to not be too loud.

It's not loud stock at all. I just did that for more clearance of the spare when I get one.
