    Is there any performance difference between bringing dual exhaust pipes out the sides or the rear? I like the look or the pipes coming out the rear, but I see more Tundras with the pipes coming out the sides...

    I'd go with what you think looks best. I've had it done on previous trucks and the shop I go to always tries to pressure me to dump it straight down or out the side, it takes them less time. I don't think there's much (if any) of a performance difference. Some say that having it come out on each side behind the tire gives it more of a factory look.

    No performance difference. You talking about one additional 30-45 bend vs going out the back. Will be just looks being the difference.

    I did read about someone complaining about the noise of the rear exit exhaust when towing a trailer.

    Thanks for the input! There's been lots here posted regarding dual exhaust preferences, and I tried to load the page with all of the you tube clips, but it keeps crashing my computer (too many clips, I guess). I'm looking for advice on a dual exhaust system for my 2014. I'm looking at a budget (unfortunately) but I need to improve the sound! I miss my old 2001 Tundra with the TRD dual exhaust. Any suggestions on a dual exhaust system that has a nice low rumble at idle but kicks in when you step on it? Not a crazy "wake up your neighborhood" loud noise - don't want that at all - but something that lets you know you're driving a V8 with some power. I'm considering a Flowmaster 40 or 50 series - but I've also been reading good things about the MBRP, Magnaflow and BAM as well. Any advice or input? Thanks!
