I spoke with product development at Vibrant here in canada and they have an exhaust for the HB 3dr - They may have an exhaust for the sedan by now which should be out in the fall (depending on dev. time they may be released next spring however - they do extensive testing and research.)

I have had two Magnaflow DTM mufflers, both have been on 3.1L engines and have sounded awsome, have not pitted, tinged or come apart. I have been extremely happy with them. Waiting to get wheels before putting it on the yaris, and I also want to run 1.5" from the header back as well.

Intake seems overprice for me. Maybe a custom made one, or just wait for another brand name to make one. AEM, Injen, K&N...In exhaust, well, maybe a custom made one is better since the car isn't so long there won't be so much of a hassle when creating one, since not so much piping is needed. IMO. Also good exhaust are Magnaflow and Borla. The later better IMO.

They advertize in Modified Mag as well. They're great to deal with. Hopefully mine will be on next week and I'll post pics.

i'd say just buy an ebay intake and slap a K&N filter on it. Works just as well. might not look as nice though.

Thinking of finding an xB or xA intake on eBay, and making it work.

There really is no "rocket science" to air intakes, and Im still shocked to see what people will pay for them!

yeah. With my cb7 people are always like well my car has a INJEN intake meaning its better than ur E Gay intake.

my response is always... so u basically shelled out 100- 150 dollars for a pollished metal tube....

that ususally shuts them up.
