Colorado GTowner, TRD mods

Hey, i live in colorado, and i have newly accuried a GT from my parents, im looking for some mods, mostly TRD, because i think they have cool parts, we have pretty bad snow falls out here and im looking for these parts, please refer me to company's please, and give model information that i can order from.
+CAI for GT (if TRD has Intake then?)
+TRD exhaust for GT
+Should i get a TRD kit, or west wings?(i think west wings is tacky, just being glued on? what do you think?
+2 sub set up, who should i go with, what do i need?
+Rim and tire combo (five spoke, within the limits without mod of my shocks)

Thanks everyone, im looking for parts, that will modify the car, however keeping it within standard specs, so it can be returned to a normal spec when needed.

as for stores, just put in a search...nopi,optionsautosalon,ecelicastore(the one on this site),titanmotorsports, etc...even toyota dealerships sell TRD stuff. CAI i'd go with Injen, as for kits there are many, and rims you can go up to 19's if you wanted , but i'd go no farther than 18's. as for subs you can spend a lot of money depending on how far you wanna go. if your gonna put in subs, most likely you'll need to change ur highs and mids (i hate it when peeps have systems that the subs drown everything out). remember, on most bolt ons you can just swap back to your original parts if you want. hope this helps (and remember some of this stuff is my opinion, go with what YOU like)

if you have a lot of $$$ to blow go with full TRD. heres what i would do if i had enough money for all TRD:
TRD replacement Air Filter
TRD spark plugs
TRD springs
TRD ext. exhaust
TRD oil cooler
TRD T3 wheels
TRD big brakes (light weight)

then i would go with light weight mods:
Carbon Fiber Hood
Carbon Fiber body panels (doors, fenders, trunk)
ultra light weight fiberglass windows(windshield)
remove spare tire
remove back seats
remove rear plastics after that you're car will be faster but most importanly lighter, which is just like adding hp, cause you car had less weight to pull.
