TRD Exhaust question

I have a GTauto. id like to get TRD exhaust system. i dont race but i like the sound and looks of nice exhaust. (I have the TRD body kit and you can barely see the stock exhaust) Out of curiosity, will the performance gain be noticible? anyone who owns one tell me what you think. thanks

i guess you can get that for looks and sounds, but i would rather go with the HKS exhaust, lo0ks great, sounds great, probably even better gains..

TRD exhaust and a CAI gives us GTauto owners a good little push off of that low end takeoff smile , but it seems to me that I loose some high end power...or is it just me spineyes ?
