modding opinions...

Sheesh, I haven't been on here for ages. Anyways, my recent hiatus has been due to a lack of desire / money / energy of modding out my Celica. I had some pretty big plans right when I bought it...but some tickets weren't too helpful. But, when I go off to college, I've been thinking that I'll prolly have the money and freedom to mod as I please. First, I was gonna get some rims and low profile tires, such as the Kosei Racers (17's), and some Nittos. Then the drop...(probably TRD), and TRD exhaust. Not sure about the whole Intake deal...but then, probably the WW skirts, and either the TRD valence or Kam. rear. Also, I've been waiting for a domestic manufacturer to produce some sort of nice looking lip for the '04 model front. TRD is nice, but...I don't wanna empty my pockets. So...how does this set-up sound? True modding won't start until around Sept...but I wanna plan.*

Sounds like a pretty typical set-up.. depends what you like though.

Definitely go with TRD exhaust (best gains,) then maybe for a couple extra easy horses to flow with the new exhaust go with AEM CAI for higher rpm gain or go with Blitz LM or SUS S-Ram for lower rpm hp and torque gain.

Lowering is always nice too and helps with center of gravity and other things, but then there is buying new shocks or even coil overs.

That there is expensive enough as it is, adding on kit, rims & tires is pretty pricey. But there are plenty of lower quality for all of the above, but you get what you pay for.
