TRD Kazuma Exhaust?

Im looking into getting a aftermarket exhaust. I have an 01 Celica GTS, and ive heard great things about the TRD Kazuma exhaust. Where can i buy the TRD Kazuma exhaust??, and is it a catback because i want a catback, not an axleback. and is that the best exhaust you can get for the celica?

TRD exhaust = really really LOUD,
you might get the most hp out of it but you will lose low-end torque, think twice

You mean TRD Kazuma. wink The regular TRD exhaust is within legal sound limits and gains low end.

Here's an MP3 of a Kazuma on a friend's GTS. It starts out with him in the street outside my driveway (about 5 car lengths away), pulling up to the street corner (about 10 car lengths). At 10 seconds into the clip, he turns left onto the main street, and contiues to travel to about 2-3 blocks away (about 1/8 mi) at the end of the clip. Keep in mind that he knows how loud his exhaust is, so he's keeping the throttle input and revs to a minimum. Sorry for the noise in the background, it was a rainy day. tongue

It is raspy, basically the same way it sounds in the video. It's loud because it only has one tiny resonator at the end, instead of the big, huge stock resonator, plus the big and small stock mufflers.

The exhaust is somewhere around 116-118 dB, 20+ db over the legal limit (and a potential source of hearing loss, seriously).

Apexi is quiet and doesn't produce much power, and HKS is semi-loud, doesn't produce much power, and blows open at the seam. rolleyes They're only axle backs.

you can always get a axel back then go to a muffler shop to take out the resonater (thats what i did with my tanabe) then its basically a cat back

so all exhausts for the celica are axle-back except the Kazuma which seems crazy loud, which i dont mind? does TPR have a website where i can see the specs on that exhaust?

That won't do a thing except make the car louder. You need to upgrade the piping from the cat to the axle back to 2.5" to get any gains. The stock resonator isn't very restrictive at all.

There are a couple other exhausts like Greddy and Tanabe that are catbacks, but that's about it. TPR's site will be uploaded soon, but for now, you can check out my sig on New[/b]Celica[b].org. It has links to info (construction, dynos, ordering, etc.) about all of TPR's current parts. There are also a few threads here with info on the TPR CAI and exhaust.

the TPR full catback seems like it will be nice...

but i like how TRD states in their TRD catalog that i have read that the kazuma meets the 95 sound decibal thing. When i guess it doesn't

Nope, you must have read the wrong line. The exhaust itself has a plate on it stating that it's not legal for on road driving.

eek

116dB is more than a little on the crazy side.

LOL, probably the same catalog that says the Celica TRD exhaust gains 14hp at the rear wheels. rofl Either way, they're wrong, since the Kazuma has this welded to its piping:

I think he's talking about the TPR exhaust and TPR midpipe combined. It could be considered a cat back, but is actually a header back. Unlike cat backs, it also includes a high flow cat.

i think some of you are confusing the TRD exhaust with the TRD kazuma. These are very different units.TRD exhuast is really just a sports muffler. Its n axel back and it meets 95db limit. Now the Kazuma is catback and does not. In the TRD catalog its has the sport muffler which it says gives 14hp and meets the 95db limit. Then it also has the Kazuma which is labeled as off road exhaust. That one is not legal.

i have read both in the magazine and they are retarded anyway.
I already knew the exhaust was over 95 blue bomber, i was stating how dumb TRD is, maybe i read it wrong spineyes

anyway, the TPR exhaust is a header back?
would you be able to pair it with another rear section of another exhaust?

if you put enough silencers on the Kazuma, can you lower the decibels to near legal? would this restrict the airflow?

The TPR exhaust itself is axle back, but once TPR releases their midpipe, it can be added to the axle back to turn it into a header back, but it will still be very close to or equal to street legal.

Yes and yes. smile IT'll take at least a muffler and another resonator to drop the sound anywhere near legal, so at that point, you'd be reducing the power back to the equivalent of an axle back. Not worth the money when you can buy an axle back for the same price or less in the end.

Yes, the TPR midpipe and TPR axle back combined will be a header back exhaust. And no, you can't use the Kazuma with it, since the Kazuma would replace about 80% of the TPR combo.

Axle back = starts at the rear axle (by the rear struts). Bolt on.

Cat back = starts directly after the cat. Requires welding to be installed. Around 25% better gains than an axle back.

Header back = Starts right after the header. Bolt on. Equal or better gains than a cat back.
