I have thought about buying one, and cutting the tip off and having the exhaust shop angle the pipe like the stock exhaust with a nicer round tip.... Because the TRD exhaust doesn't work with the rear step bumper... I don't know why all these aftermarket companies didn't take that into consideration... :roll:

It does, remember I had one. But it isn't the muffler alone, it's the rest of the exhaust pipe. The OEM pipe is pathetic. I think the TRD muffler is about two inchs. The OEM pipes are even smaller. Not good for performance even if you do install a cold air intake system. The key here is to let the engine breath freely.

The reality is that the TRD muffler is much quieter then the Magnaflow Muffler. Even though they are the same size. Of course the Magnaflow empties out a lot better creating more power in high gear.
