    Need a quiet exhaust. Last summer I put a cat back on from MBRP, loud as hell. Swapped out mufflers for a Magnaflow and its alot better but still at certain rpm's the muffler resinence is annoying. Im ready to go get a stocker and put back on. Any ideas ? Would Borla be quiet ? Lets face it the V6 doesnt sound the greatest and ive realized the older I get the quiet is ok by me.

    If you think Magnaflow is loud I'd go back to stock. That's not a comment to be an ass, but personal opinion is that Magnaflow is one of the more "tame" exhausts.

    what type of magnaflow do you have? If you have the shorter case, you could opt for one of the longer cases and it should reduce the exhaust note. The size of the exhaust tip may also reduce overall noise, but probably negligible.

    I have this exhaust (http://www.dtexhaust.com/product_in...ucts_id=216&osCsid=1tsf27kfp5vbeje7ogr4mtoj91) and I am very pleased with both the overall sound both in and outside the cabin. It’s not loud at all unless you really step on it or at a severe incline.

    I like the sound of the exhaust, i just had a Flowmaster put on. It is kind of calming for me.

    I was thinking of swapping the Magnaflow for a larger Flowmaster 50 series SUV muffler. its about 4" longer in the body than what I have now.

    So I've driven with the trd exhaust for about 6 months and now have stock on the new runner. Maybe I'm just getting old and all, the trd sounds cool but I don't miss it one bit. Pretty sure I'm sticking with stock this time around. Quiet is pretty cool also:homer:

    I had my '03 for probably 11 years before I put on a Gibson cat-back. I thought it was cool for a bit, but quickly got tired of the drone at highway speeds.

    I like hearing the engine while accelerating, but I can't stand a constant drone.

    Blacked out badges, window deflectors, smoked 3rd brake light. I have a Borla muffler on order as well as some color matched engine cover stickers. I'll be painting the stock wheels soon as well. Falken tires in the fall as well.
