    My tailpipe seems unusually black. I would expect an ash gray. What is the usual color that you guys see? 97 LX 450, 114K, TRD S/C, 11.5 mpg.
    Thanks, BigMac

    It must be an aftermarket tailpipe. I wonder how many extra horsies you get from that? ::)

    I'm assuming you're talking about the 'inside' of the tailpipe.......

    ......in which case, mine is charcoal gray...

    For some reason I can just imagine one of the Little Rascles looking into a tail pipe and *pooffff* the soot comes out in his face.
