The exhaust you listed above are not carbacks but Axelback Exhaust. If you want a catback exhaust will have to have on custom made or get the Kazuma exhaust but I belive that eliminates the Cat.

^^^no they are not catbacks ONLY AXLEBACKS, it is a very easy install just 2 bolts and 3 hangers it can be done by anybody with simple tools most people have.

Catback starts right after the catalytic converter, Axelback is near then back half of the car usually where the rear axel would be.

here is how to remove a exhaust from a celica.

well right now TRD has the best gains in power, but when TPR get in high gear they are supposed to have a exhaust that out does TRD.

TRD is axleback unless you get the TRD Kazuma exhaust with i think eliminates the cat.
I have no idea how they sound I have not heard either of them on a celica but here are some reviews of some different exhausts.

All of the bolt-on exhausts for the celica are axle-back. As far as performance wise most of them(the good ones) are within a couple hp of eachother, so it doesnt really matter which one you get, as long as you dont get one of the worst ones. Buy one based on looks and sound, people get all heated over which ones are better and make more power, but they are literally arguing over 1 hp, something you wont even notice. Of course its different if you get a kazuma or a custom exhaust. Those will make more power but will also be louder and not street legal.

I heard a lot of exhaust's actually lose you power because whatever idiot welding together a whole bunch of large diameter pipes probably doesn't know a lot about engineering physics mathematcs it takes to calculate the best flow. like putting a dual exhaust on your 4 cylander engine doesn't do anything for performance.

the axel backs are pretty much catback since they're after the cat.. it's not like there's a place to bolt it directly after the cat. there's nothing besides a long pipe between the cat and the axel.
