More Torque/Interior Question
2 questions here:

1) what is gonna give me the best increase in torque? i was thinking a CAI, but just wanted to check for sure, as well as any other options

2)i wanna paint the CELICA letters and the horizontal lines at the bottom of the frame of the door, was wondering if this was possible, or if it would scrape off to easy, if so, what would i use?? thanks

increasing the bore of your engine will give you the best torque results.

besides that, Turbo will help somewhat. (both are very expensive)

almost all bolt-ons (exhaust, CAI, shortram, header) will decrease your initial torque, but increase your top-end torque by a few whp). so on the cheaper side a header would do best, then exhaust, then CAI or shortram. but again..it will only be noticeable on the top-end. at low rpm's your torque will actually decrease.

an Intake that gives you the most low end power would be the AEM CAI, it gives you power for the most of the powerband. Injen is for the high end power. Im going to get AEM CAI

I was under the impression that you couldn't increase the bore being that the cylinder walls are to thin...is this correct or am i tarded? confused

you can buy the 2zz-stroker kit from trial (about 3 or 4k i beleive). it's an add on, but the result is that you can increase the bore & stroke to increase displacment and thus increase torque.

increasing stroke is supposed to increase torque. plus it's cheaper than boreing because you don't have to have the block machined thumbsup

increasing stroke will lower the rev happiness of the 2zz.
