Most powerful exhaust?

What is the most powerful exhaust out there for the GTS. I have the Apex-i N1 now and it is not all that loud and it didnt seem to give me all that much more in power. I am looking for something with a little more note and some more power. Any recommendations please let me know. Dyno's would be cool too...

the TRD kazuma exhaust is the best exhaust power-wise for the celica. its the only true cat-back and it'll give you about 7-8 whp in an otherwise stock gts.

it is over decibel limits though in every state..its pretty loud. you can buy a silencer for it but that obviously will take some of the gains away.

i'm a fan of tpr as well...but i want to see more dynos of their exhaust. i've only seen about 2 or 3 so far and it DOES look promising, but it remains to be seen on how they perform in 3rd-party dyno testing.

i want to see more dynos from people who got a post-production batch of exhausts before i make a recommendation on power.

If you sell your N1, I'll buy it.

As for an exhaust, that is more powerful, I would say your best bet would be TRD, but if you want more noise then you could get a TSRM or TUM. If you want an more sound the Veilside exhuast, would be a good one. It is made out of titanium so it weighs all of 7lbs, I think...

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

^^ yeah, the veilside teardrop is extremely light. and the gains are on par with other major name-brand exahausts. (and yes--it's only 7lbs eek )

TPR? got any actual proof? (dyno test from one of their "customers") Off the market Kazuma has the best gains but not street legal and next to it is TRD.

So, TRD would gain over all the companies that CelicagTizzel mentioned. If I do get another exhaust then I will be selling the N1.

If you wanted to stay legal, then the standard TRD (extended if you have a kit) would give you the most power, but it isn't too loud. The TRD Kazuma would give you the most gains, but it is not street legal...

If you wanted more noise, then I would recommend getting a TSRM, TUM, or the Veilside Tear Drop...

I want the best of both Power with just a little more noise then the Apex-N1 makes. So, I am thinking the TRD would be the best. WOW! Who would pay $825 for exhaust, that just seems like to much to me.

TPR's exhausts will be hitting the world in about 3 weeks. So far they have dynoed the highest.

If you're thinkin about goin kazuma save your money. You'll get the same sound/gains by simply removing your muffler all together. I run like that every day. never bought an exhaust for my car and I put down 185 whp and 136 wtq so power isnt an issue thumbsup

Lucky, you run without an axle back?? confused wtf

how is it that i get pulled over for my TRD exhaust (one of the most quietest exhausts) and you don't get into shit? is it because i'm afflicted with being AWD (Asian while driving)?...LOL rofl

here's the deal..everytime you see "catback" for our car, it's not true
our cars cannot have a catback without having to weld and no one makes a true catback for our car, nonetheless, it would just be eliminating that second resonator.
the TRD kazuma replaces the cat, so you have a straight back design...no cats, no resonators, always best gain
TRD sport is the best gains along with TPR and TSRM right now
I think RS-R is up there too, but i have never seen dynos of it...
TPR performs better than TRD, RS-R, TSRM
and also performs just as good as the kazuma without being illegal since it's an axle back.

Is TPR going to make a midpipe then to finish the system off??? Also where they not going to make some really nice race headers that will actually bring gains to an already moded car?

the header is going to take awhile to get released because they arent going to half ass it. It will also most likely NOT be cheap. there will have to be a new mid pipe for the new header design to work. but this is all stuff that is in the future. I wouldnt count on it comin out in the next 3 months.

Cool I can sit on it.. I have the crappy DC Sports that dont do jack, but I can wait awhile for someone to make a real header. I am very interested in their exhaust axle back set up. Are any pics avaliable of this system??

why waste money on a kazuma? if you remove your stock muffler you get the same affect.
