Installed my TRD Extended Exhaust a few weeks ago...
I bought this thing brand new from ebay, from a guy who had it sitting in his basement, but never installed it cause he sold his car. It was a replacement exhaust sent by Toyota since the last one melted his rear bumper due to a bad hanger most likely. Got it for only $350, and that included shipping. Got it so cheap cause he just labeled it TRD Exhaust, and didn't include Celica in the listing. Great way to get items for cheap off ebay. grin

Anyways, that's not what I wanted to talk about. I installed this thing myself (extended length on a stock bumper doesn't look too bad), and I noticed that it didn't match up 100% to the factory piping infront of the rear axle where the two screws with springs screw into. I have the donut in to seal the deal, but one of the screws isn't screwed down as much as the other since the factory piping seems to be bent. I might have bent it a little while taking the factory exhaust off. The donut seems to seal it up nicely, and I figure that if I have a leak there that it would do nothing but improve horsepower gains, but has anyone else had this problem?

Not really, and it didn't sound like there were any leaks either. I think there is no leak, but I was wondering if anyone else had a problem like this.

Yeah I had that same problem with mine as well. They don't line up exactly but just enough for the "o-ring" to seal it off to prevent leaks. I haven't had any problems with mine.
