Question about muffler
I dont race, so i can go the muffler route and just get a really nice one and not worry about the gains. But does this void my warrenty to cut off my old one?

If you get TRD Exhaust You will not loose your warranty.
And yes you will loose the warranty on your exhaust if you install that cheap bucket...
P.S.And who knows if you past the emittion test or not...

I got about 200$ but now baseball has started and I cant work until season is over and that won't be until August. So no more cash flow. I'd like a whole system, but no one has a used one for 200-250. The muffler idea was my only other idea.

Ok look you will spend $40 on the bucket (Mufler),$50 to install... So -$90,-Warranty... thumbsdown
Just hold on to it... Insted of buying some trash just get somthing beter.
Or just forget about the exhaust and lower your car. You will see the big defferens .
P.S.Keep looking. Today no one has used but it may be on sale tomorrow...

True, I need some rims too, so i cant lower my car. But I have wondered this, what lowering kits allow you to keep the aggressive stance? Where the front is lower than the rear.

Ebay has used exhaust systems for around $200. A while back some one was selling a one yr old Blitz exhaust for $200 & it was in pretty good shape.

If you looking for agressive drop go with Eibach Sportlines 1.8" drop front (1.5 finger gap), 2.4" drop rear (1 finger gap) Or you can go with Gold-Lines. I belive it's 1.7"drop.
P.S. Eibach Sportlines $185 from www.Modacar.com
Gold-lines $135 E-Celica store.

Not entirely true. I asked a couple Toyota dealers about my warranty before I bought a muffler and they said that I can do anything I want to the exhaust as long as I dont touch the catalytic converter. And I also bought a Bomz muffler off of eBay for $50 and it sounds and looks great. Not high pitched like a Honda, it has a nice deep smooth tone.

If thats true, i could do that, that and maybe buy a AEM Cold Air. Can someone tell me if this is worth it? I emailed them, and they said they were selling AEM at cost to get rid of whats left in stock.

AEM Cold Air
