    For some fun it would be awesome to put the budget system on, but its loud and raspy at higher rpms. Because of the resonator I think the 8 will be pretty quiet. Im thinking the 6 is perfect. When you are at speed you wont hear it much until you get on it. One good thing about the 6 or 8, if you get the 6 and get tired of it or think its too loud he will change it to an 8 as long as you pay for shipping. He is pretty nice about getting what you want. One other thing... you know the resonator is bolted onto the tailpipe after a hole is cut right? Absolutely nothing wrong with that and it is the best spot for getting rid of the drone, but I couldn't stand the thought of having the extra pimento welded on. You could always get it welded on, or... you can ask him to weld it right after the mufflers like he used to kn his old system. He told me that he felt like the drone cancellation works better with it on the tailpipe, but you know I have the duals and the resonators welded right after the muffler... no drone. So just a thought. The main thing is he will do what you want and if you dont like the result, he will change it for you.

    I have a Magnaflow and it's just not loud enough for me. I do however, love that I cannot hear it at highway speeds but I want something different. Which one is the loudest I could get without a lot of noise in the cab at highway speeds?

    Any reason the corsa isn't on the list? I have only heard the trd in person on a tundra, so I don't feel educated enough to vote. Im not ready to buy an exhaust yet, just starting to do research myself.

    I have the 10 series Flowmaster loved them but after I put a x pipe "crossover" it quieted it down quiet a bit which I didn't like but it did bring my kick back "low end torque" and my mpg went back to normal (it went down from pinning it so much 1 for sound 2 for compensating for the lose of low end torque) but I'm very happy with it have pics in my build Texas great white.

    I didn't consider the other brands because I've been reading a lot and seams the BAMufflers is the best choice. Engineered specifically for our trucks. I am still considering Banks because I had it on my Tacoma and sounded very good. Almost like it had a V8
