Finally got around to shooting a couple quick videos of my Borla Catback. In the one from inside the truck you can hear my Volant too. I really like how it sounds. It's not too loud but enough you know it isn't stock. I only had 200 miles on the truck when I installed it so not sure about performance gains or mileage increases but I suspect it wasn't much.

Here's a link to the vids

No in fact you can't even hear it in the cab until about 3K or so.

Man I really want to do mine but im scared that it will be too loud inside. The girlfriend will be soo pissed off if that **** is too loud. She said she "would be embarrassed to ride w/ me" :lol:

Does an CAI make it even louder?

Not sure what your hearing..it might just be a distortion on the video.. digi cams aren't the best for sound. Dankone if your worried about noise steer clear of an intake. The exhaust itself is pretty quiet in the cab compared to like a flowmaster or magnaflow. .

I can't confirm this but from everything I've heard it's the same exact exhaust. I think Borla makes it and they slap a TRD logo on it and charge you a couple hundred more bucks for it. Someone correct me if that's way out in left field.

well i dont know about charging a couple hundred bucks for the TRD logo hehe but everywhere ive looked the Borla exhaust seems to be more expensive by $100 or more then the TRD.

That used to be the case in preveious years but not anymore. On 2005+ models the Borla exhaust is actually more expensive than the TRD. Kind of hard to explain without the pics (I can't seem to find any) but the TRD design features more of a cylindrical looking muffler where as the Borla is more of the flat, square shape like the majority of mufflers out there. Not sure if there's much of a performance or sound difference between the two, but I'm going for No.

Back to the Borla, its a great system and it sound awesome on thr 4.0. Nice performance growl when you want it, but not real obnoxiously loud or rasp. In otherwards, I think it would get the girlfriend seal of approval :waytogo:. Another thing to note, quite possible the easiest system I've ever installed (but granted its the first and only 05 Tacoma exhaust I've put on).

The TRD exhaust is not made by Borla. It's made by Bosal. If you look at the actual muffler it should say Bosal somewhere.
