Pics of my custom exhaust. How would I put a TPR or TRD on here

I have a custom cat back exhaust, and I've decided that I want to get a TPR or TRD exhaust (because it feels like my custom exhaust bogs too much and I lose low end).

The only problem is that when the put on my custom exhaust, they cut the original piping just after the resonator and put different piping, so I don't know how I would get the TRD exhaust to fit on here now.

What can I do to fix this? Here are some old (and small) pictures that I took a while back after I got my exhaust done. I would take new pics but I don't have any batteries right now.

I would say you could just take the new exhaust to a muffler shop and they would have to cut the exhaust pipe that bolts on and just weld it to the current piping you have installed.

Yup, either that or find a place that sells JDM ball flanges so you can just bolt on the TPR exhaust. BTW, what size is the piping on your exhaust?

I assume you mean TPR, not TRD, right? wink

how would the tpr exhaust perform if you install it then do custom cat back piping with it?

Maybe 3-5 more whp, depending on how well the custom part was made (NO crush bending at all thumbsdown ).

did you like the custom exhaust setup or did it not work out to well since your switching to TRD or TPR?

Since you have 2.5" piping on your custom exhaust, you can either get one of those ball flanges I was talking about so you don't need to modify the TPR exhaust (if you ever decide to part out your car), or you can get Easy_C to make you a TPR exhaust with just a flat flange welded on. Then you can take your car to an exhaust shop, get your custom exhaust cut off to line up with the TPR exhaust, and get a flat flange welded to it to make the TPR exhaust a full bolt on exhaust.
