I'm interested in putting a quality header kit on my 2.7L tacoma and doing all new exhaust in the interest of gaining some power and getting ready for a supercharger. However, I do not want a deep throaty sound, I'd like it to stay near the stock noise level, Is this possible or am I crazy?

i would have to say you will hear the sound get louder...i don't think there is a exhaust system that won't change the sound of ur car...correct me if i'm wrong..

are you worried about noise in the cab or outside? my magnaflow sounds very deep and pretty loud outside the truck, but the only time i really hear it in the cab is under heavy throttle in lower gears. it doesnt drone on the highway or anything like that

I'm running a LCE header, 2/14" exhaust pipe (from napa v6 reg cab pipe) between cat and muffler, Allied HD all welded rv Turbo (round looks like Gibson muffler) The sound is a little louder out side the truck, inside it is not noticably louder. I think it sounds good, that is subjective though.....I have noticed a small increase in power at highway speeds, where most of my driving takes place. I figure 5-7 hp at most. :welder:

Any aftermarket exhaust will be louder since it is giving more flow and being less restrictive. I have a Dynomax muffler welded in and can't notice much of a noise difference over stock compared to most peoples aftermarket mufflers. Mine is real subtle but if you get on it, you can hear it is a little bit deeper than stock.

use any wide open muffler (magnaflow, etc), but also use a pre-muffler, like a thrush glasspack. this combo keeps the noise way down but also gives you the best wide open setup and will compliment a header very well.
