My thoughts exactly although, I dig it more on 6cyl cars for some reason. Like Supras. Although I've seen some Eclipses (2gen) get away with it.

I couldn't see the motor type making a difference. I think it could look good, but better with a bodykit.

Having an angled exhaust isn't ment to cater to visual preference. The whole concept behind the angled exhaust is to reduce bends in the exhaust pipe, which will result in a more freely flowing exhaust system and greater HP gains. smile

i like angled exhausts too. but in order for it to work there needs to be a really large exhaust cutout on the car wich the stock celica dosent have.
a problem easily enough solved with $$$

a kid told me that celicas handle like crap... i laughed

Now you can cut .000001 seconds off your 1/4 mile. I think the benifit is so insignificant in a four banger and for that matter any car. just my two cents. COSMETIC MOD!!!

yea, go for it. it looks a lot better than straight ones, and as they said, its not only for looks but for performance also. however, i think the muffler needs to look like a apexi N1 to look the best when slanted.

Well, yes, the angled exhaust reduces backpressure, and upt the HP a bit, but our engines can't afford to lose too much backpressure. We need the torque!

If you were running a turbo or something, then yes, it'd help, but on a N/A celica, it wouldn't do much for performance.

Looks cool tho. I'll admit that.

A nice, free flowing mandrel bent exhaust would free up more than enough HP, the angled setups are good if you have enough mods to warrant the added flow.
