[PICS] Tanabe Super Racing Medallion Exhaust

Got mine via UPS today from AFS motorsports for $500... With the right tools and a friend, you can get it done in 1 hour as with any other cat back exhaust. Just use ALOT of WD40 or any penetrating oil on the hangers and on the bolts!!!

The exhaust dynoed at about 166 hp and about 122 lbs of torque on the GTS. I also have an Injen RD Cold Air Intake so the gains are pretty noticeable. I'll post pics up as soon as I could find my digital camera!!!

My car was 1000 miles old when I did my TRD rubber was still soft but when I did my buddies it was a bitch

It sounds pretty awesome.

He was driving along side me (I was in shotgun in another car), so I pretty much to hear what it sounds like.

It's nice and has a good bass to it, and when he kicks it in... you can hear it thumbsup

you like it better than TRD? the tanabe vs. TRD is a really tough decision...

also, that looks like it's prety close to your rear valence. aren't you worried it's going to melt your rear any? it just looks REAAAAAAALY close to me.

yea it was close but when Skunk2 took it off to fit their new cat back on my car they put it back on and it clears the rear valence now by like 1 cm. in the picture it was touching but just by like a tad.

And yes I do like it better than the TRD even though I have never driven a celica with the TRD exhaust. I picked this exhaust because i love the way it sounds and performs!
