    hello guys newbee. been reading ads about this for a week and saw alot of different thoughts, good and bad. i cut out my muffler and welded in a magnaflow bullet and threw on 3 " mag ss tip 14" long. than i threw in trd cai in and as for results . its loud as hell and loving it. sounds like a subaru wrx with a little throat in it and pulls alot harder when up in 4k rpm range. havent done mpg yet but will post in a few days. seems to be alot smoother in higher speeds and lower in the rpms. im barely at 2600rpm at 100mph which was much higher before.like i said ,i'll tell more in my everyday driving next week.:crazy:

    If you put on a dg y pipe it gets even more subaru like, one is much longer than the other

    on five day commute got 1/8th tank of gas left instead of being empty with light on after mods. i figured thats atleast 2.3 gallons gas. so would that would be just over 32 miles extra if i got 16mpg .so at 18 gallons thats almost 2 miles per gallon more. its fine with me

    Is this really your scientific way of measuring your mpg increase/decrease?

    I noticed a small increase in MPG's when I installed my TRD CAI. I also have the TRD Exhaust which is a nice sound.
