MMid pipe: maybe $$300? $1100 total...

Header: if its a grand, which is very spend for a header, that brings the total to $2100. So... with overpriced standard parts, that's $1900 for a tune and installation.

That's what I like to call ballzing ridiculous.
Looked at FRS, some had a TRD exhaust option. It was listed at $770 on the sticker. Not sure if it was a cat-back or what. Probably a cat-back.

TRD mods have always been a rip. IIRC the old Scion roots blower kits ran like $5K for 5 psi. It should have VTEC and a turbonator for that kind of cash.

In fact, most dealer options are crap. Take a look at what nav. options typically go for, then look at what you can get at Car Toys etc. Stuff seems to run 400% to 600% more pricey than doing it aftermarket.
