I have no idea, but I am willing to try anything. Thank God though, my wife gets how bad this thing drones and is hard on the ears on the highway so she hasn't asked to put that POS back on the truck. I REALLY like driving the truck now. It's so pleasant.

I would honestly say that the TRD exhaust is relatively quiet and I don’t experience a drone at all on the highway. Now if you were running a 14” Magnaflow of something like that then that would be another story.

It will likely get louder and will drone more as it breaks in. It's also louder when it's hot out; thermal dynamics of the metal at play. Ours did both of these things.

There are only two V6s I'm aware of that sound amazing. One is the first gen NSX and two is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. In the past I had modded Nissan/Infiniti cars with the VQ series V6 motors. I learned that you can't modify the catback on those cars unless you're willing to put up with drone and rasp. The 4.0 V6 in the 4Runner is no different and I should have known better. I assumed that since it was an OEM system, Toyota would make it pretty tame and dial out any severe drone. I was wrong. I should have paid attention to what most legit offroaders DON'T do with their 4Runners (i.e., modify the exhaust).
