Here's a few pictures of my new setup.
Quite digging it. Sounds deep and rich.

I got it done by a local fab guy near me. Welds are exquisite. PM me if you wish to know where I got it done.

Edit: it's been pointed out that there are 2 unnecessary 90 degree bends and could have been two 45 degree bends for better flow. I know this. However, we're modding what is essentially a sporty prius. I'm still happy with the way this mod came out so lesson learned for anyone looking to do something similar.

F-Sport springs and sways. You might be able to spot some of the Tom's racing bracing too

It depends. Before, I've never heard the exhaust from inside the cabin. Ever. It was always engine noise. Now, it's deep and rich. You'll see in the video clips if I ever figure it out. The sound is as perfect as the welds.

A side benefit to losing the heavy stock muffler is that the car sits better. Normally, the car squats a bit at the rear. Not so much anymore.

I got them in 17x8.5 +44. Tires are 245/40-17. I didn't go 18 because I'm going for function over form(lighter). My theme is to enhance the sport in sport hybrid that Lexus came up with for the CT200h.

Ultra Racing is from Malaysia, I believe. Products are not too shabby. However, bracing is developed as a set so your better off getting the complete set instead of mix and matching like some people do. All the pieces are designed to complement each other. Do you only have the front tower brace? I have the complete Tom's Racing set and it makes the car extremely solid yet compliant over bumps. I 3 wheel going up steap driveways LoL

Nice! I know you had the Aimgain kit for a while, so I was wondering how you were running your exhaust before this?
