    TRD is 2.5" diameter. The '05-'08 factory catback was 2.25". They might have upped it in '08? I am not exactly sure when the diameter changed. All I really know, is that mine is 3.5". :p

    They kept it the same at 2.5" since I made that mistake thinking that the TRD was still 2.25" when I ordered my resonator lol I'm a 2011 so I'm sure it hasn't changed much in the 12's+

    Cat Back Exhaust, pondering others...
    That I would have to check on. I did some research and considered buying an exhaust from an online store. The trouble is I don't have a lift or a welder, so I just had the dealership do it when I bought it. I have the old system, so I can see. The specs say a 8HP gain, and 1-2 MPG gain. I can say the HP is true. Plus is sounds great. The dealer charges about $100 more than if you can do it yourself: http://trdparts4u.toyotaofdallas.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idProduct=-9567
