well i finally got rid of the cheapo ebay exhaust. and running on stock just isnt the same... i decided to go with the real deal lol... since TRD, Trial, Tanabe, and Skunk2 is out of my budget... and Apexi N1 and HKS hyper is too common... i have finally decided on the RS-R exhaust. my friend with a civic has it. sounds alright, i like it. have anyone heard this on a celica in person? anything bad about i should know about before i put down the down-payment on thursday
So they're charging you about $125 for the install after considering taxes, right? What's their shop rate? They shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to get your exhaust on your car. And that's if they take their time. Of course I'm considering the great price of the exhaust at $400 shipped which you may or may not be getting. But the thing is you can order it from hopupracing, and bring it to them to install if you can't do it yourself. You really shouldn't pay them for more than 20 minutes of their time.
my freind out in cali works for them and got a rs-r exhaust for me for 249$!, just waiting on the shipping. Its a really clean exhuast and not angry hornet sounding at all, a nice TRD like rumble. Standard simple install.
I have the rs-r ex mag gtII exhaust and I'm very happy with it. It is very loud w/o the silencer in, but the car definately feels faster in upper rpms vs. stock. And plus its lightweight, i weighed it at only 13lbs.
Q: How do you double the value of a Ford? A: You put gas in it.
Hmmm, Not sure if a Canister muffler can sound like a chambered on our cars. Anyone got a clip? Not only that but i dont really think a Canister muffler will perform as well OVER THE ENTIRE RPM range as a TRD...
Look at the veilside exhaust...its light and has a canister muffler...2 whopping hp..
i wonder what my custom exhaust put down on whp- i cut out the original muffler fabricated a straight pipe then added a performance muffler on-it feels like a lot more power but i dont have anything to dyno it so i dunno
