    If you get time I would appreciate seeing a couple pics of that tip and the tip/truck. and the tip/truck with a hot chick standing next to it is always the ultimate goal. :D

    TRD is 2.5" pipe. I think 3" oval tip.

    figured I'd add a little to this thread on comparing all of the exhausts. My aero setup is still running strong and i now have the entire "catback" welded with 2.5" piping from the y-pipe connection back. Also Got rid of the crap y-pipe to resonator connection where I constantly had leaks and had a flex joint put in. With this setup i felt a noticeable increase in power after bumping up all of the piping to 2.5" (rather than just the piping between the resonator and AT2525.) I really feel that after all of my changes the best setup for these trucks N/A is to have 2.5" piping the entire way after the y-pipe. My y-pipe is still currently "stock" with the only difference being the new straight through flex joint that replaced the stock y-catback connection.

    Once again here is my exhaust setup if anyone else has questions. Pictures in my build thread.

    AFE Stage 2 Si Intake
    JBA Long Tube Headers
    Essentially Stock y-pipe
    2.5 in/out vibrant ultra quiet resonator
    Aero Turbine 2525
    Dual Outlet exhaust tip
