Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. (June, 2015) – Since its inception, the Toyota Tundra has managed to do the impossible: beat the Big Three at their own game. The Tundra has always been an unlikely choice when compared to the standard offerings from Ford, Dodge, and GM but its thoughtful engineering and excellent build quality have made it a stand-out for over a decade. Toyota’s V8s have long been legendary for their ability to take whatever abuse their owners could throw at them but their exhaust note was, shall we say, somewhat restrained. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t good sounding engines though, and MagnaFlow is here to prove that by letting them truly breathe.
