Need Your Opinion

TSRM or TRD? these are 2 top legal exhaust systems out (so i hear). TRD = better gains, low sound | TSRM = decent gains, louder than TRD. What should i choose? (if i havent named an exhaust system that is legal\worth getting please say) Thanks thumbsup

Just got my TRD exhaust... so i think you should definitely get TRD!!! If your going more for sound I guess TSRM but TRD has a nice sound too, just more subtle

Sometimes it's not always about who can have the loudest exhaust. After hearing both I prefer the TRD even if it's a little milder sounding. TRD put lots of TLC into it so it will make your car feel extra special.

TSRM does not have decent gains, it was POINT 2 (.2) lower than the TRD...both have the BEST gains...

Well this is a simple decision... .2 Horsepower isn't gonna help you much, you will barely tell the diffrence. If you are doing this exhaust for a loud sound and a bit more power, by all means get the TSRM. If you want a sound that is more like stock and a .2 more horsepower, grab the TRD.
Also you might want to look into the new Greddy SP2, nice clean look, and I hear great gains. PM GroupBuy4Celica about that one. Good luck, and with any 3 of these exhausts, you will not be let down thumbsup .
