    Hey all, Flame me if you will, but I bought a Catback exhaust from Ebay. I know, I know. But hey I did my research on this set up. the exhaust is made by these guys www.cgsmotorsports.com


    this is the Ebay store
    eBay Store - Custom Wheels Tires 26: 20 Wheels, Suspension Lowering, Shaved Door Handles

    this is the Catback exhaust
    eBay Motors: 05-08 Toyota Tacoma 4.0L V6 Catback Exhaust FREE SHIP (item 310038746654 end time Apr-12-08 13:50:02 PDT)


    I paid $311 total which includes shipping to Hawaii. I believe they offer free shipping to the continental US. So that would be $271.25.

    it comes with an extra 2 foot pipe for long beds, which of course i didn't need. Only mod is you have to cut your stock exhaust from the flange.
    Great quality, all mandrel bends. Sounds great too! Sorry for the bad cell phone pics. Also, these guys were real good with the communications. They sell the same kit for long beds and double cabs. I think they sell one for the access cab too.

    Nice find. Don't worry, we're a pretty friendly site here. Most of the bashing you may read on here is just fun amongst friends.

    Have you noticed any improvement in performance?

    hey bro.......no need to worry about geting flamed......we take it nice and easy round here;)!! welcome to tw, by the way!!!

    exhaust looks good...........now i think you'll want to take it to an exhaust shop and get it welded in place of the clamps.........just a thought.

    oh yeah......a sound clip would be cool if you get time.:)

    maybe a little, i only had it on for a couple days. I noticed the top end pulls stronger. To get home my freeway goes up in altitude a little, gradually for about 4 miles or so. It seems to pull stronger there. Of idle, not too sure. But sounds great when i pound it though. :cool:
