Just picked mine up today. It looks great. I got the Sport Cat to go with it too. I got to hear the twin tip with CRP on the Toyota engine and a single with CRP on a K-series. I heard the single in a small garage so it was hard to judge exactly how loud it was but inside it was almost enough to hurt your ears. They both sounded very good. The twin tip has a slightly deeper note but is equally as crisp as the single. The twin with CRP was not as loud as I expected. I also picked up the rear plate holder that replaces the big heavy one and the turn buckles that hold up the defuser.

Oyaji san of ToyBox 48 is a very nice person. I had to take the train (well, actually 3 trains for a total of 2 1/2 hours) to get to the shop. When I got there, they were closed. I asked the people in the a shop next door if today was ToyBox's day off. Sure enough, closed on Wednesdays. I told them how far I had come so they called Oyaji san and he was there 15 minutes later! He personally boxed up my exhaust. The Sport Cat was at another one of his locations a few minutes away so he drove me there and where I go to listen to the twin tip. Then we went to the small garage a few minutes away from that location just to listen to the single. After all that he even drove me back to the train station.

Thanks Oyaji san!

Can we buy the reflectors braces and license holder separately from the exhaust?
I think the SS QS exhaust might like to be exposed a little more ;)

The plate/defuser holder set is sold seperately.

They make a twin tip if it's that much of a concern. Adding a fake tip would completely defeat the purpose of getting the single.

Mag Blue, Touring, Hard Top. Didn't really want the Touring but I figured I could "live" with it. It's not that expensive anyway. If I go for a serious drive or to the track, I can just take out the passenger seat to save the weight added by Touring.
