TRD catback exhaust

Just wondering if the dealer installed TRD catback is worth the money? I want something a little more beefy than stock but don't want it to sound like a weedwacker. Nor, do I want to sacrifice MPG's. Any thoughts?

How much will it be via the dealer rather then a 3rd party? Its a really easy install if you do it yourself. And if you read any of the threads on here about the TRD how you decried the cat back is pretty accurate: a little more beefy but not too loud or obnoxious.

It's $520 from Toyota website not including labor. Third party, I haven't checked. i didn't get the truck yet. I'm just inquiring. When I ordered the Tacoma I asked about the catback and the salesman told me to go see the local speed shop for stuff like that.

I have a 2015 Tacoma on order from my dealership. I just found out that the completion date is Sept 16 so I asked if they could have a catback put on during the build. My salesman quotes me a price of $700! I declined. Gonna tackle it myself. Anyone know of the best deal out there?

It's slightly louder than stock. You can definitely hear it.

I had my dealer match the best price I found online.

I have one on my 2012, it came installed from the dealer new. If it's not part of the package you are ordering I would save the money on labor and install it myself. It's completely bolt on using stock locations for the hangers. First off the esthetics of it are a great improvement. I love the sound. It's a little loud in the cabin but I enjoy it. It's no V8 deep sound but it still sounds pretty good.

I test drove a new '14 that had one plus the trd intake. The low end was missing a lot of grunt. I test drove a stock one and the modified one back to back. Modded one was much louder in the cabin, but I did like the exhaust note. The downside was the missing torque down low. It'd be fine with a supercharger, but stock, it's slower off the line.

What CAI is it and was it worth the funds?

I added CAI's many years ago and they helped. But as of lately they seem to be a waste of funds other than sound & bling. We have a little 2008 MX-5, sometimes I auto cross in. Mods are, tires, wheels, suspension, a very nice header & CAI, the header helped a lot, the CAI was a waste of funds, the dyno proved this to be true.

$370 from the dealer. Installed with the help of my dad.

Some people have installed it by themselves but having an extra person really helped. Spray the rubber hangers with WD40 and wiggle them back and forth and they come right off.

Edit: I can take a picture of my reciept if it helps people get their Toyota dealership to price match

I just had the exhaust at that point. It sounds like a jet with the blower but I don't have a vid of it yet.

I'm sure you've see this:

You can definitely hear it outside. People look all the time but I bet they think my power steering pump is bad.

Many have stated aftermarket cai. do nothing for h.p on the dino.
Stock is a cai.
I think it helps make a better sound with trd or aftermarket cai.

Get the TRD exhaust, you won't be disappointed. After that, you can get a supercharger installed if your budget allows. I got the TRD exhaust ordered and installed at the dealership for $475 in 2013. Recently I got the TRD Supercharger ordered and installed (same dealership) for $6500. I do not regret it one bit, I love the TRD combo!
