Got my TRD Exhaust!
Hi Gang, just wanted to say I took everyone's advice and picked up the TRD exhaust for $515 shipped. Had CarX bolt it on for $50 bucks (I know I coulda done this myself but I don't own any tools). Anyway I took it out for a spin and was really impressed! I have the 2002 GTS Automatic, and before there was some serious lag time after hitting the gas and the car actually picking up speed and taking off. Now its a LOT more instaneous. It really helped in that dull spot between 80mph and 100mph. Flew through that 20mph gap nearly without slowing down acceleration at all. Had it up to 110 on the interstate testing it out, overall though, I think it was an excellent buy! Oh yah, the sound isn't the loudest but boy it does sound like a race car at the high revs smile Turns some heads when you blow past the other cars and its roaring in the back *evil grin*

Anyways love the advice here, thanks guys!

Congrats, Caerie! You made a very wise buy. I've certainly never regretted mine. All the way around, I liked the changes...power, looks, and sound (which is just right for me, I can hear the car respond, but its not loud to the point of irritation). I hope you get much future enjoyment from it.

Steven, I got it from www.etoyotas.com for $485.00 plus $30 shipping and handeling. Worked with Ben Maldonado via email and phone. He's their internet contact person. Was a great experience smile I shopped around a lot and that was the best price I could find, there may be lower though. Some of these people here seem to really have the connections!

Really BAD reality TV is the reason I stopped watching MTV.
