Model year 2022 saw the Tundra switch from a naturally aspirated V8 to a twin-turbo V6, which – obviously – doesn't offer the same kind of aural pleasure as the eight-cylinder engine. Customers who aren't pleased with the exhaust sound of the sixer can easily improve it by swapping the OEM exhaust with a cat-back system from Borla.
The Johnson City, Tennessee-based company offers two distinct systems. Both are made from T-304 stainless steel, feature a 2.5-inch true dual design, and promise full-bodied exhaust sounds without any drone. S-Type is how Borla refers to the lesser of the two systems, while the more aggressive-sounding exhaust is dubbed ATAK.

Compatible with the i-FORCE MAX hybrid but not with the optional bed step, these systems end in side-exit tips with a diameter of 4.5 inches. They're backed up by a million-mile warranty for defects in the materials and workmanship, although exceptions apply. For instance, the tip finish is guaranteed for a year.

Borla doesn't state power and torque gains from either system, which is hardly surprising because cat-back exhaust means pretty much everything rear of the catalytic converters. That being said, what's in the box? The answer comes in the form of left and right-side front pipe assemblies, an X-pipe assembly, the muffler, left and right over-axle assemblies, the exhaust finishers, and clamps.

Those who are into DIY should have a few tools on hand in order to replace the original exhaust with either of these systems, beginning with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 6-inch drive extension. 14- and 15-millimeter deep well sockets are necessary as well, as are a pry bar and penetrating spray lubricant for the bolts, nuts, and the hangers.

Borla lists the cat-back exhausts under six part numbers, those being 140939, 140939BC, 140939CFBA, 140940, 140940BC, and 140940CFBA. The S-Type and ATAK are compatible with all three bed options available for the 2022-and-newer Tundra CrewMax. They're also compatible with 2WD and 4WD trucks.

When it comes to pricing, the most affordable S-Type of the bunch is currently listed at $1,840.99 as opposed to $1,843.99 for the better-sounding ATAK. Presently available to configure as a 2024 model, the Tundra SR with the CrewMax cab and 5.5-foot bed carries a retail price of $43,865 (including the $1,850 destination charge).

The SR is joined by seven brothers in the form of the better-equipped SR5, the Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, TRD Pro, 1794 Limited Edition, and luxury-oriented Capstone. The latter three grades cost in excess of $70,000 from the outset.

Equipped with both direct and port injectors, the 3.4L twin-turbo V6 hiding underhood is the subject of a pretty big recall. An estimated 102,092 units of the 2022 – 2023 Toyota Tundra and 2022 – 2023 Lexus LX 600 may require brand-new engines due to machining debris adhering to the main bearings, resulting in catastrophic engine failure.
