I would go with a 5.7L muffler.

How does the 4.0 run in the Tundra? It worked ok for my Tacoma, but don't know how much pep it would have in the much bigger Tundra.

I've always had strange toyotas, I have a Sienna for my daughter, my last van was a Previa.
I think everything is geared correctly.. this has lots of pep.. gets up to 80 really quick to get
on the highway.. I don't tow anything, and used it was $3000-$4000 cheaper than a comparable V8..
and did you see this?

Here it is.. Someday I'd like a big one with big tires.. but this is fine for my first Toyota truck..
It is a million times nicer than a F350 I bought new in 1990.

I had a 4.0 for about a year until I went to the 4.6. The 4.0 is too small for that size truck.

And lots would tell you that the 4.6 is too little.
The 4.0 is fine for a truck not run near the limits. It has more power than most 80's 90's half tons and they got around fine.

True...it really comes down to individual preference and what it's being used for.

Don't go too large on the muffler inlet and outlet size... match it to what is there.

LOL, nice one.

If you want to add some perceivable "pep", I would look to find a 4.30 rear differential from a 98 - 99 Land Cruiser. It will bolt into the axle housing, but an adapter would be required for the driveshaft to bolt up to the flange (I could possibly produce that part if required). I mention these years as they are somewhat common and relatively affordable... a maybe a few hundred $$$. Some have a LSD even. Brand new complete open and LSD units can be purchased from Toyota for around $1400 - $1600, and they have the compatibility to have the pinion flange swapped so an adapter won't be required... but I suspect you don't want to go that far into it $$$.

The 4.0 makes almost as much torque as v-8s in the 90s
