kazuma..mad power + mad sound, only downside is the tickets you might be getting.

I heard TRD WAS the best choice considering street legal-ness (is that a word?) and Performance...as well as good tone and good looks...however TPR exhaust is supposed to be a little better...still legal with the exhaust note...but giving an extra 2hp over TRD...but Kazuma does give mad power and mad sound and yes probably mad tickets

kazuma is hands down the best, i have it i love it and i put a silencer on it and i haven't gotten pulled over yet. defintly the loudest exhaust ever but the silencer makes it better. i would defintly go with this exhaust. the tone that it gives off is so nice. none of that rice high pitched blaaaaaa. this is a rich deep tone that makes heads turn thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

When they say TRD, they don't mean Kazuma. The TRD exhaust and Kazuma are 2 totally different exhausts. The Kazuma is made by TRD though.

Extended. The regular one is for the stock bumper.

apexi n1.
its mildly loud and it has a great hp gain. its light weight and smaller compared to the TSRM.

my suggestion is that you go with the TRD or TPR exhaust.
though TPR has better gains than the TRD. the TPR is identical to the TRD in looks and sound. TRD/TPR has a great low growl to it that isnt loud at all, just the right level of sound thumbsup

and get the TPR Intake as well, and the TPR headers. it will provide the best overall gains there is. thumbsup

From the dyno that Red01GTS did on New[/i]Celica.[i]org, when equipped with the same CAIs, the TPR exhaust beat TRD by 7.5hp in midrange and up top, and by about 4hp down low. Almost like adding another CAI's power to the car! thumbsup Considering the sound is almost identical to TRD (street legal), it costs $50-100 less, and weighs about 20% less, there's no reason not to get it if you're looking for the best Performance out of an axle back exhaust. smile

Pics of the production exhaust will be released once the first batch is made (just waiting for check for the machine shop to clear). smile Here's a pic of the unfinished prototype to keep you occupied till then:

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/attach/1870188820-tpr-prototype-pics.gif

The real one will be the same shape and size, but will be polished to a mirror shine, have a flange (true bolt-on), and a different tip.

You can sign up for the 2nd group buy in the Group Buy forum of New[/i]Celica.[i]org. I believe it's close to halfway full already. smile

As for pics, EasyC had a pic of the tip on his other computer, but lost it. angry He said it's just a regular round tip, though. Once the first 10 customers receive theirs, I'm sure there will be pics a-plenty. wink
