Welcome! There's a few titan owners around here, so you aren't alone. There's also a handful of titan turned tundra owners .

I hear ya, well I have had pretty good luck out of my 05 Titan with a few of the growing pain issues that the earlier Titans have had but over all its been a pretty good truck and way better than a Chevy or Ford.

Back in 05 the newer Tundras were not out yet and the Titan just blew the competetion away back then with room and power. I have had pretty good luck other than a few of the growing pain issues that Nissan had with the Titan but all in all I have been happy. I couldnt find many pics lol but here is one I have. I will post my dyno video also in a bit.

Here is a dyno video I had done after headers, Tuner and cai. My 05 was rated at 305/376 factory and made these numbers on a dyno jet at the rear tires. The Titan responds very well to exhaust mods.

Welcome and nice truck man! You're right, the Titan was head and shoulders above everything when it came out. Still puts some newer trucks to shame too! I almost bought one that looks just like yours in 2008, but for some reason the deal fell through. You'll find that no matter what you own, there are lots of great people on here, ready to help and give advice.

Wonder how the Tundra would respond to a set of Cajuns?

After building over 500+ exhaust systems for the 2gens I can tell you that if built like your Titan pipes it'll be loud and raspy with a huge loss of low end torque. I already build B pipes for the Tundra and those issues have been resolved with my design.

Kool, I will have to take a look at my buddies Tundra and see just how the oem is made and go from there. Exhaust pipe is exhuast pipe but bigger is not always better so much research will need to be done for sure.
