SPEAKERS! & POPPING SOUND!

I only count six speakers. whats the deal? Also I have been noticing a popping type sound from the rear right hand side when cornering hard to the left. Originally I thought it was the end muffler piece slapping up against the frame. Check right next to that last muffler section and you will see what piece im referring to. I dont think this is it thought because the popping sound is quick (if you know what I mean) Now im thinking my spring is bending funny. I found no visible problems the last time I had that wheel off. I guess it could be any arm back there too. I have no Idea help!

You only count six speakers? How many are there supposed to be? I do not think the popping noise is your spring or your muffler. Are you positive it's coming from the rear and not the front. Could be your drive axle (but that is in the front). A good way to check is to go into a parking lot with a friend. Have your friend stand outside while you duplicate the sound. Hopefully that points you in the right direction. Good luck.

8 speakers! wow. I've never counted. Did you count the two tweeters? They do not count 2 way speakers as two speakers.
As for your rides, looks good because its a celica, but it looks stock. You need to start doing some modding.

k&n is not good. in the most resent import tuner they took a rsx-s and they stuck a whole bunch of different Intakes in it, then dyno'd them. the k&n drop in had -.1hp loss and 0 torque gain. the rsx-s and the gts are a lot the same so i can would think about the same results would happen with a k&n drop in in the celi. sorry i sound like im diss'n ya man, but im just informing.

GT300 body kit on, getting fitted, doing install myself.
pics comin as soon as my kit is here and painted...

Hehe, yes, there are 8 speakers. In the door, they've got a pair of speakers stacked ontop of each other. The Mid-range and the bass. That's why you only count 6.

Jeremy,

Sorry I didnt really make that clear..I dont have the money for lovely mods yet. frown I bought the K&N because I was able to convince my girl that it was needed. mine was old. No offense taken. right now I would not even thinking about trying to warrant an Intake or exhaust yet. One day.

Im new and I would just like to say its nice to see folks who are as exited about thier celica as I am. cheers

has there been a shoot out yet on exhaust yet? maybe <I think it> was magna flow direct fit replacement exhaust is nice. That might be too new. blitz NUR spec; greddy aaaa which one is the best. all about gains. sound is cool wieght is cool but I want to beat that freakin VW GTI 1.8 that won last night on the way home from work. I looked it up...173 pounds of tourqe at freakin 1950 rpm 180 hp at 5500. jerk and to think I thought I could win its got a turbo!!

. what was the best Intake? AEM? . now that you guys got me started.

Here I go again...
Best PERFORMANCE exhaut...TRD
As for CAI, Ingen is 1hp greater than AEM, but AEM is 3-4 tq greater than Ingen. All depends. I have Ingen, but would probably go AEM if I had to do all over just because celica needs more low end (torque) then it does hp. Hope that helped. And yeah, the speakers are stacked.

Those who knew me, knew me well.
For those who don't, can go to hell.

It is said that the AEM install is a tad easier, but the filter is difficult to get on. I wouldn't know. I have the Injen and I love it. AEM owners have also been known to have more problems with the CEL (check engine light) after install. But I wouldn't know why or anything about that. You would have to talk to the AEM owners.

yeah installing the AEM Intake was easy but the filter is a pain but i love it but i have a gt but i bet it would be the same on the gts and with the cel light just disconnect ur battery for like 5 mins and i heard it comes on cause ur bringing in more air (that's what i heard )

why does everyone always say torque when they mean low end??? HP = Torque x (RPM/5252).. TO GET MORE POWER ANYWHERE.. you nead TORQUE at that RPM.. LOW END is low RPM torque, HIGH END is high RPM torque... plain and simple.. Torque is not low end and Hp is not high end... in fact torque and HP are always = at 5252 RPM... these are the facts..

Anyway, Intake should be your first mod IMO.. AEM is awesome, and does give you more low end torque than Injen, however Injen avereages better across the powerband, so if you want all around gain go Injen, if you want more torque at 3000-4000rpm go AEM.

Take a look at your drive axle boots. Look under your car from the front so you can see the inside of the wheel. You will see a shaft with a black rubber boot next to the wheel (connects to the rotor). Is the boot torn? If it is, then you need drive axles. They make the noise you describe when you turn, but they are on the front not the rear. If it is definitely the rear, have someone stand outside and listen to it. Other than that, I'm all out of ideas.
