Low costing Mod that will Give me 20-25 hp?
I have some money to spend and as some of you know I ve gone from Mustng to Celica, By far the celica is better but I do miss the hp. What is a good low cost mod that can give some hp.
On the other side do I need to do any engin mods to have NOS?

20-25 HP can only be attained thru I/H/E and obviously nitrous.

No mods are needed for nitrous.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

Like said Intake, headers, exhaust. Nos is always an option with no further mods needed. Pullies, light weight flywheel, lighter racing rims. A shortshifter doesnt have any gains but will help.

Injen Intake
Trial or TRD headers
TRD or TSRM exhaust

will get you about

18-20 hp added to the wheels.

I read that the TRD headers weren't very good at all.. but if you want the most gains on a exhaust go with the TRD exhaust or if you are a bit gutsy (or your sound by-laws allow it) go with the Kazuma exhaust.

CAI can give you maybe 15hp tops (though I hear it's mostly noticable in higher rpm) or you can go with Blitz Short-Ram LM which will give you maybe 10hp at best but it's for low rpm and I believe gives some more torque (a popular mod.)

Gaining 20HP will cost you no less than $1500, if you get deals on all the items (Intake, exhaust, header, pully, grounding kit, ect).

The Celi pushes 180HP from only 1.8 liters. Big gains don't come easy (or cheap).

YUP:

CAI-220
TRD EXHAUST-550
TRD/tRIAL HEADERS-900

$1600+ FOR 15 WHP??? FOR 1600 YOU CAN GET AN AWESOME SUSPENSION SET UP... thumbsup

Use the search button for fast results. thumbsup
They are basically the same, you will not regret either, and the general rule of thumb is AEM for Auto. Injen for Manual. I have Injen and I love it.

Injen gains mostly up top,
AEM gains not as high as Injen up top,but has good gains low down and mid,where the Injen lacks.
