the older hi power exhuasts by HKS did rust but the newer ones do not. they put some sort of anti rust on it. it's not loud unless you're pushing it. which is nice if you don't want to be bothered by a loud exhaust. it does sound nice though.

TPR > TRD. wink Better low end and top end when used on a stock Celica. Add an Intake to both exhausts, and TPR utterly destroys TRD. Here's a dyno (TPR=blue, TRD=red):

BTW, HKS makes the TRD exhaust, which explains why they have rusting problems, too. tongue

I have the HKS. It's ok but I'm thinking of changing it out its a little to mild for my taste.

TPR is the best performer by far (TRD 2nd, HKS 3rd). They're all pretty much the same in terms of full throttle loudness, but HKS is supposed to be a bit louder at idle. TPR and TRD sound very similar, but I'm not sure about HKs.
