Merideth: If you're looking for some more street appeal, and not only the sound but also the look of your 2009 to 2021 5.7-liter Tundra, this MBRP 2.5-Inch XP Series Dual Side Exit Exhaust System with the polished tips will be a great choice to take a look into. Now getting right into sound, this is gonna come in at a three out of five on the loudness meter, with one being completely stock and five being wake-the-neighbors loud. Now, that'll make it great for the Tundra owner who wants to hear their exhaust from time to time but doesn't want an exhaust system that's going to be overbearing inside the cab when it comes to conversations and long drives. Now, this is also a great pick if you're looking to change up the look of your exhaust if you're tired of looking at your factory one and are in need of a style upgrade.Now, this will feature MBRP's Street Profile Sound that will offer you a good amount of a volume increase without being obnoxious and little to no drone inside the cab. Now the exhaust will also free up a lot of restriction compared to the factory one, which will give you a little boost in performance that you'll feel in those higher RPM ranges. Now, again, this will also just completely change the appearance of the rear end of the truck with a more aggressive dual-side exit configuration while keeping that classic look with the polished tip.When it comes to the construction, this exhaust will be made of 2.5-inch diameter mandrel-bent T409 stainless steel tubing for optimal durability and rust resistance while boasting a non-restrictive airflow design. Now on the back of the exhaust, both tips will be made of a T304 stainless steel for the best rust resistance while boasting a 3.5-inch diameter appearance and a polished appearance, again for that classic and very clean look. Now, this kit will also come with absolutely everything that you need in order to install this while being completely bolt-on, so no cutting or welding is required.Now, getting into price, this will come in at roughly $800, putting this at a pretty affordable option or a pretty affordable price point for a dual-side exit cat-back. Now, compared to other options available in the category like this, this is going to feature that moderate volume increase, a polished appearance on the back, and a durable build. Now, I think if you're looking to save a couple of bucks on a system that's going to give you a good amount of volume while staying very comfortable inside the cab, and, of course, that premium appearance on the back, then this is going to be a great pick.Now, install will be a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about two hours to get the job done with some pretty basic hand tools. At this point, we can head over to the shop and check out a detailed breakdown of the install and what it looks like step-by-step. That's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and jump into it.Man 1: Tools used for this install, impact gun, exhaust grommet removal tool, PB B'laster, a 3/8 extension, 13, 14, 15, and 17-millimeter sockets, a 5/16 Allen socket, a pair of safety glasses, and gloves. Hey, guys. I'm gonna show you how to install our exhaust system here on our 2018 Tundra, but first, we're gonna watch a quick uninstall video and then we'll jump right back into the install.Man 2: All right. So, before we can get started installing our new exhaust, we're gonna go ahead and get our factory one off. We're gonna show you how to do that while keeping our factory pipe intact. Obviously, if you plan on never reusing your original equipment muffler and exhaust pipe, you can just cut it and make it a lot easier to remove off of your truck, to be quite honest with you. But this is a fleet vehicle, so this installation is not gonna be permanent, so we're gonna show you how to get it all out in one piece. Let's go ahead and get started. One thing I would recommend doing before you get going here, let your exhaust cool down if you've been driving your truck, and also get in there with some lubricating oil and spray up the little rubber hangers. That'll make popping those metal hangers out of the rubber a lot easier.All right. Now to get started, like I already said, guys, I'm gonna make sure everything's cooled down. These first two bolts that we're gonna take out are right by a catalytic converter, which gets really hot, and we've been letting our trucks sit for, like, an hour and it's still pretty warm. I also recommend having eyewear and some gloves while you work with your exhaust. Exhaust pipes tend to have sharp edges to them, not to mention the surfaces being hot as well. So, let's go ahead and get these out. Our factory bolts are 14-millimeter. All right. Same 14-millimeter socket for these two bolts as well.Now we're gonna have a total of four rubber hangers like this, guys, and to be quite honest with you if you're trying to keep your pipe intact like we are, you can do these in any order that you want. We're kind of doing it the way it might be easiest for us to demonstrate for you. So, we're at the one that's all the way, obviously, back here by our spare tire. And you might see a little bit of wetness here on the rubber. I sprayed some penetrating oil on there earlier just to let it sink in. That makes these coming off a lot easier.All right, guys, now this is the fourth out of four rubber hangers. So, obviously, once we pop this one loose, you got to make sure your pipe is supported in some kind of way.Man 1: So, now we have our stock exhaust off. What we're gonna do is start installing our front pipes here. We have two of them, one long one, one short one. I'm gonna start with the long one. You're gonna wanna make sure that your gaskets are still in place when you took your stock exhaust off. Now that they're still there, I'm gonna take the longer pipe first, start with that one, get that in place, then we will install our shorter pipe. So, now I'm gonna take the longer pipe here, get it into our rubber grommet, and we'll get it in place up here. We'll start our bolts, and we'll start our top bolt. So, now I'm gonna start with the top one. Now on your vehicle, they're probably both 14 millimeters, our top one's 15. We had a bolt and nut on this one up top here. I'm gonna tighten that one first then I'm gonna switch over to my 14-millimeter, tighten the bottom one.Now we'll install our shorter pipe. So, now we're gonna put our shorter pipe in place. First thing I'm gonna do is get our hanger through our rubber grommet up there, get that in place, and get our pipe lined up here like that. Start our two 14-millimeter bolts, and just make sure everything is lined up. And what I'll do is take my 14-millimeter on my gun and tighten these two up. Now I'm gonna take my 14-millimeter, tighten these two bolts up, and the top one.So, now that we got our front pipes on, we're gonna install our mufflers. You can see I already have my clamp on. I'm gonna take it, slide it in place here, and get this one on, and we'll do the same with the second one. So, next, what we're gonna do now we got our mufflers on I slid my clamps over top of our mufflers here. We're gonna install our driver's side pipe here and get it up into our rubber grommet and install it. So, we're just gonna take it, sit it up in like that. I'm gonna get up in here, slide the hanger through, pull back on the pipe, and get it into the muffler. So, you're just gonna want to wiggle it in and feed it in as far as you can to get our clearance, and we'll get our pipe straight like that. It's in our hanger.And now we'll install our passenger side. Now we're gonna install our passenger side pipe, and I wanna make sure that we get it in the muffler and then line that up with this bracket here and get them both to line up. We have a bracket right here we're going to be taking and putting a bolt in here to hold these two in place. So, now we're gonna install our 13-millimeter bolt and a flat washer and a lock washer on the other side. And we'll get this snug for now until we get our tailpipes on and get everything lined up, then we'll tighten this up. So, now we're gonna install our passenger side tailpipe. We're gonna get it up in place here, get it in our pipe, and at the same time, get our hanger started here or put our grommet, I should say, onto our hanger up top here and get that started. There we go. And push it on and slide the pipe into this pipe. just like that.So, next, what we're gonna do is we're gonna install this rubber grommet here to hold the passenger or the driver's side tail pipe up. It's gonna go up in here. There's already a hole drilled from the factory. It gives us a 13-millimeter bolt and a flat washer and lock washer. So, we're gonna go up and put this in place. So, now what we're gonna do is just take this, there's already a pre-drilled hole, we're gonna put it up in place and take the flat washer and lock washer and the nut and get it started. And then what I'm gonna do is take my gun with a 13-millimeter and tighten it up while I hold it like that.So, now we're gonna install our driver's side tailpipe. I'm gonna take it and get it up in place here and slide it over the pipe like that, and it'll get it into our hanger here that we installed. Now I'm gonna take my 15-millimeter, tighten up all our clamps here at our mufflers. Now I'm gonna take my 13-millimeter, tighten up our bolt right here that's holding our two tailpipes or our axle pipes together. Now I'm gonna take the 15-millimeter again, tighten up our tailpipes after I took a look back there and made sure they were right where I want them. Same with this one. So, now I'm gonna put the tip on. Just gonna slide it in place, get it where I want, and take a look back at it to make sure it's straight right where you want it. I'm gonna take a 5/16 on my gun here, tighten that up. Now you're gonna just wanna repeat that same procedure on the opposite side.That wraps up this review and install of our MBRP 2.5-Inch XP Series Dual Exhaust System with Polished Tips Side Exit for '09 to '21 Tundra 5.7-liters.

The polishing process also removes the surface impurities to slow down the effects of wear-and-tear. The 3.50-inch muffler tips are also polished to a high shine, giving your truck a sleek and clean look.
