I'm getting my 06 Scion this week I think. I ordered it 2 weeks ago and they said it would get here in three weeks. After looking at a lot of pictures I really like how the TRD Exhaust looks. I was just wondering if it was worth that much money to get it and if it added much except for looks. Does it add more HP? Does it make it sound a lot nicer?

The TRD Exhaust looks really good and the sound is great. One drawback is the cost of shipping because it's oversized. The HPS increase is about 2-3. The Borla we have is not as pretty, but is much cheaper to ship and gets 5-6 HP. Just a thought.

Go with Ken's Borla. It's a good deal and you get a drop-in filter with it. Is it still true, Ken?

Hey yall, I know this thread is about 20 days old...
But this TRD Exhaust thread talks a little about Installation....

This is supposed to be easy to install right? I am a DIY'er that is about to leave his Turbo Civic. Is this a bolton, do you have to weld it anywhere, is it just hung by rubber hangers??

Maybe even throw me a few tips!

Thanks yall,
jeff S.

3 hangers, 2 bolts. Hangers are pretty soft, so I did not need to soap them or anything.

Tip: Righty tighty - lefty loosie.

Is the exhaust loud like a ricer(loud farting noise) or it sounds like what a good performance exhaust sounds like? Because Im interested in getting one but i hate getting a really loud one where the whole block can hear me.

i did a search for exhaust weights but couldn't find anything. i see ken mentioning shipping costs on the TRD system so i thought i would post this question here? Why the hell is is so much more to ship? Does it weigh that much more than other axle back systems? Is there any weight saving over the factory muffler?
