Many of the following exhausts are incompatible w/ factory Rear Under Spoiler - which is present in ALL US Prius, this RUS can be removed though. Please also note the following table which relates JDM to US packages. But error may occur & we're not responsible for any incompatibility. Don't take this as gospel. Buyer beware. No refund & no cancellation if incompatibility occurs.

Please specify your Prius original factory wheel size (not your aftermarket upgraded/upsized size). While US Prius has one type of suspension regardless of wheel size. In Japan, the new Prius has 3 different front shocks, 2 different front springs, 3 different rear shocks & 1 rear spring between its 6 packages. CRAZY! The only safe upgrade kit to order is the TRD Sportivo Suspension right now.
Did you know that JDM & US-Spec Prius (regardless of packages) come only with front sway bar? Hence it's extra beneficial to strenghten its chassis. Some underbody bars may or may not rub against US Prius due to the slightly different exhaust design. Most of these bars are designed for JDM right-hand-drive (unless specified otherwise) so some modifications may be required to make them fit; like relocating the brake fluid reservoir, etc.
Please note that some minor trimming on rear bumper or bending on exhaust maybe required as these are genuine JDM exhausts, which had not been tested on US Prius. Buyer beware. When buying exhaust upgrade for the Prius, apart from the usual improvements like power gain, looks, fuel economy, etc., there's an added bonus - SAFETY! As much as we like 100% electrical Prius w/ zero noise pollution, reality told us that the Prius must make 'some' noise for other pedestrians to be aware of us. An inconvenience indeed but reality nevertheless. Many JDM exhausts listed below will not fit Prius with JDM rear bumper spoiler like the Styling Pkg A, etc.
The table below shows what US Prius come with. The items below the table are lighting upgrades. Check with your local laws to make sure these upgrades are legal. By default, all lighting upgrades are for offroad & show use only.
