TRD Exhaust Installed, etc...

First thing this morning the TRD Extended Exhaust went on the Celi and I am SO happy with it! As soon as I got in the car and fired it up I couldn't stop smiling smile If you're looking for a loud exhaust, don't get this but I think the sound is perfect. It has a nice mature tone and hints at something powerful in the car instead of throwing it in your face. Thanks to the four school busses ahead of me the entire way home I could only "rip it up" in third gear but there is a noticeable improvement in low end power and then again higher up in the revs. Sorry my car is so friggin dirty, the roads here are ass. thumbsdown

In conclusion...TRD Exhaust thumbsup
Stuck driving home behind the short
bus thumbsdown

Yes, that red Dodge Neon in the background is my last car(RIP) We had some good times until her engine decided to turn into the piece of shit I knew it was but hoped it wouldn't break as soon as it did.

I have the Injen Short Ram...wouldn't trade it for the CAI and that's mostly because I like the look of the Short Ram. Congrats on the kit though, I think yellow celicas look awesome with the TRD kit! thumbsup

Is that a Carbon Fiber Hood? Doesn't look like it. Could B the lack of light reflecting off of it.

where would you go if you wanted to get those seats? do they sell them at the Toyota dealership and could you get them in blue suade if you wanted to? I am in love with those seats!

I think they're only available in Canada. You could get a custome job on them for the blue suede.

It's worth asking your dealer about. All of these different colored parts were installed in Japan when the car was built so I wouldn't think that there would be any lying around the dealerships in USA or Canada. I came across a websiste a while ago that had color matching TRD shift knobs...I'll try to find it and post the link up.

Hmmm...maybe I should sell my seats and shifter seeing as there is such a good market for them and then I could buy some real TRD seats smile

Ummm I don't think your car was made in Japan dude. If you bought it here in Canada it was built somewhere in Canada. They don't import Toyotas,Hondas etc. they build them here.

NO man its japan parts but think about it do you know how much it would cost to bring every celica or civic over from japan. there are toyota manufactoring plants in canada that put the car together with japan parts. they don't bring the actual car over.

You know how expensive it would be to ship every part over to Canada & then assemble it there. Pop your Hood & you'll see a whole bunch of "Made in Japan" stickers. On the vin sticker it says Made in Japan. If it was built in Canada it would say Made in Canada from parts made in Japan. Go take a look at the new Camry's vin number, or the piece of paper on the new Camrys that tells you what the dealer is selling it for & what options it has. It'll say assembled in the US/Canada with N% parts made in Japan.
