TSRM Issues

Ok can someone clarrify somthing for me? I own a Celica Gt and I am in love with the new Hyper Medalieon. But then I heard that Tanabe only makes their exghast for the GTS. I cried a little and then got mad so the I emailed Tanabe to see if was true. At first they replied and said yes they only make thier exgaust for the GTS. But THEN he emailed back and said that they will fit the GT but with some "minor" adjustments. So I am completely in the dark about which exgausts I can get someone please help. confused confused

I have a GT and a TSRM and have no fitment problems at all. I had a little problem with the exhaust hitting the rear bumper when I hit a bump but that was easily corrected but "loading" the rear hanger.

You should be fine. grin

if it wiggles around, you can have a muffler shop guy warm up the hanger arms and move them a little so that it doesnt move. You can also have a muffler shop make you another secure hanger if you really needed it.

What do you mean by loading the hanger? My TUM hits the right side of the rear bumper too when the road gets pretty bumpy.

Mine was fine with side to side movement. Ever once in a while it would hit the upper part. So what I did was get some Hard Rubber Discs that are a little bigger than the two holes in the hanger and put them in there. This keeps the hanger from flexing to much. It's not really gonna affect side to side monvement.
