    Aboot to purchase a TRD exahust for my '12 V6. I am looking for input so I can make up my damn mind. Been researching all over the place (internet) and have found lots of folks for and against the TRD exhaust, so I am having troubles making up my mind.
    This is what I am after -
    Sound: doesn't matter as long as it doesn't sound like a riced up 1990 CRX. Deep and not too loud is preferred.
    Perfomance: I am looking for some performance increase, oppose to NONE at all.
    Looks: As long as it's not hot garbage and rusts, then I am good.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Not much power to be gained, if you like the sound then I'd say it would be worth it for you.

    Lost horse power? Man that sucks. Well I am planning on a CAI, so maybe the 2 together will give me an increase in HP and a nice sound. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah but that was only with the Flowmaster model I have but I havent heard of any other aftermarket exhausts losing power. It was only like 2 to 3 horses that were lost. I also have a TRD CAI and it helped a good amount IMO.
