    It arrived after more than 2 months wait and finally had time to put it on. It was direct bolt on and perfect fitment. Sorry for the poor picture quality, just though I share how it looks on a C.

    It makes your wallet much lighter, so it incrementally improves mpg. ;)

    I'm surprised the sound didn't change a little? I heard a vid and it was nicer then stock but quite which I like.

    It would be nice if it made even 1HP more.

    It will probably break in after a few hundred miles and get slightly louder.

    After break in, I'm sure it will sound a little bit louder.

    Cost? I'm debating on either doing something similar or just cutting the tip off higher up so it is not visible. Not sure what???Definitely don't want to any sound if I add a new exhaust or tip.

    Cost ?? What ??
    Taking off a perfectly good stock exhaust system and replacing it with a different one.......that sounds about the same, just so you can have two chrome extensions sticking out the back instead of one ??

    I'd still like to hear from the guy that did it to find out what his thinking was.

    This is close to $1g or less shipped I believe?

    Here is how its sounds.



    I like it personally. This is TRD not some aftermarket system.I would say there should be some minor improvement but??

    I did 0-60 10.2s stock on SG2. Wounder if I can get less with the TRD exhaust?

    I guess due to ECU changing the throttle position?

    It's most likely heavier than stock.

    Found this on eBay about 2 years ago. Came off of a Turbo Yaris Vitz In Malaysia. Very rare. Sounds awesome. Increased performance.
