I guy I work with has a Tundra and performed a cheap yet effective exhaust mod to his truck. Apparently there is a resonator or catalytic converter after the y pipe on the V8. He simply removed his exhaust after the resonator and had a tailpipe exit out the side of the truck like the Gibson cat back.

It sounds real nice for what is effectively an exhuast with no muffler. It is not loud at all except under WOT and the idle is quiet with a little rumble to it. He said the total cost was about 1 hour to cut and weld the pipe on.

Somewhat similar to mine but I have a glasspack after the resonator and splits out with a exits on each side. Mine has a soft rumble while idle and roars under throttle, sweetest sound to me.
Tundra's exhaust aren't as loud as the domestic. Our local muffler shop guy said of all V8 trucks he's done the tundra has the nicest rumble and also the quietest for a glasspack.
I would also assume your friends exhaust probably is louder than mine since he doesn't have any kind of muffler.

When i replaced my muffler, i kept it on for a week, then had it removed. It was still to damn quiet after owning my tacoma. Its still quiet at idle, but when you get on it it reminds you its a v-8 now.

Cool. I had no idea what the Tundra guys do for exhaust so I thought I'd throw it out there for ya. :D

Great and cheap trick to help with the wimpy exhaust sound the tundra has. Also, this is only good with non-CA models. As the CA models have a third cat and it's illegal to remove it. Non-CA models have a resonator. I had the JBA EVOL exhaust put on and ended up cutting all the piping after the muffler. Definitely sounds a lot better.

I was told it was a resonator by the muffler shop.
