    But, onto other things! So, if you read my other posts, I am curious if this is a noisy motor or is there an actual problem? What can I do to quite her down? Took a video (attached http://youtu.be/cb4L7O6hSlc). Take a look and let me know guys.
    Thanks!

    Which engine do you have? Sounds louder than mine but I test drove another Tundra the other day that sounded just like yours.

    Make sure everything on your EGR system is tight.

    Normal. The exhaust manifolds aren't the heavy cast ones, like in times past. They're actually a little thinner and header-like. That's right where you were holding the camera. I remember going from the stock manifolds to headers on my 97 Tacoma and noticing quite an increase in the sound. Also there's a lot going on in the valve train, two cams, four valves/cylinder, injector noise.
