which exhaust should i get

I just got a 02 Celica GTS with a 6-speed. IM looking for an exhaust and i dont know which one to get for both power and sound. I'm looking at either Skunk 2, Apexi N1, or HKS Hi Power. If anyone can help that would be great.

You can NEVER go wrong with the TRD. Looks and sounds amazing. TSRM is also good BUT..i hate how it looks. It resembles a cheap ass tin can.

just check out the soundclips i posted. TPR sounds almost identical to TRD. i will have some vids posted up soon. You may want to wait a week, some independant dynos are gonna be done to finally show everyone that TPR does indeed beat TRD by alot...incase you cant tell from the dyno (32whp over stock at 6300 RPM wink)

For gains, TPR is the best (TRD is the next best in gains)

For sound, its all TSRM. Or TUM, if you can shell out $1k. Really deep and really fucking loud!!! If you want louder, go Kazuma, but its not street legal in the US. cry

I go to tell you dude, I just put my brand new TSRM on my GT, and it aint loud. Its just a lil deeper than stock. I am going to get my resonator removed now! thumbsup

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

TPR or TRD for Performance

TSRM or TUM for Sound

APEXi n1 for a good blend of Performance and Sound thumbsup

or Magnaflow, i heard it gave good gains, has a nice low sound, and it street legal.
