Need advise...
Hey Guys I need you advice... I was able to save $500 and I am gonna put some stuff in my 03 GTS manual... This is what I have planned so far:
Springs --------------- $169.96
AEM Pulleys------------ $77
AC Gauges ------------- $65
TRD License Plate (2)-- $20
TRD Short shifter ----- $131.8
Raised Hood scoop------- $110 (thelostrican)
Total------------------ $563.76
This is what I have so far:
TRD Exhaust.
AEM CAI 2nd gen
17's Enkeis / Yokohama's paradas
HID lights.
TRD body kit.

I am not gonna get headers yet becuase of my warranty (still have 26k miles left) I also don't want Eibac sportlines because I don't want my car too low (roads suck in NY). Please give some ideas, we have as I said $560 to play around with, I am looking for looks and some performace, more looks I think. Please let me know I will be ordering all these parts before Friday, also if you know where i can get them cheap, please advise... Thank you so much for your help...

You could find cheaper prices for the short shifter, AC Gauges, and most likely a few other.

sounds good, dunno if id pay that much for the gauges tho, you should also look into a ground wire kit, theyre around 20-30 bux and can give you some extra little kinks here and there.

Just don't blow your engine, and you should be fine.
