Replacing Midpipe Only

Hi Guys,

I have a mate with a celica who is thinking of changing only the midpipe to a stainless steel performance one and keeping the rest of his exhaust system stock.

Any ideas if he would get any benefits from this and any extra sound as I am doubtful of the outcome??

If anything gains will be minimal imo. the mid pipe suppresses the "fluffing" noises you get from the exhaust.

He's better off just changing the rear box if anything as the standard rear box will probably cancel out any gains.

Will it give a nicer exhaust note as standard the celica exhaust does sound ok but could be slightly louder he doesnt want a backbox as he doesnt want it too loud and all the back boxes are huge 4 inch bores and look abit stupid.

So he reckons by just doing midpipe he might get a slightly deeper tone?

dont think you'l get much noise increase with a standard backbox, sound more like a blowy exhaust
his best bet is a non universal aftermarket backbox. Similar to your janspeeds for zr's
they change the exhaust note but aren't blary at all

I'm in exactly the same boat and hoping that an open cone might be a decent alternative to changing the exhaust.

As per pm, tell me about it

This seems like a good kit from what the lads on celica-club.co.uk have suggested. Not sure that I'd trust the filter itself though.

My mate had one similar fitted to his and the filter didnt seem too bad he sold the car a few months after and I nearly bought the kit from him for mine but he damaged it when taking it off the car.
Worth a go because for the money you are getting a good pipe that has been designed for our sensors.
