Depends if you want everything out of your gt you possibly can get or if you just want a lil extra kick?

I have a GT and have exhaust and a new Air Filter. And Im done w/performance. But i would reccomend you get hearders and and a CAI. Then work on extiero mods.

IMO, do this in this order:

CAI Intake (AEM or Injen)
DC or Hotshot headers
Pulleys
ECU upgrade (Apexi or Greddy)

after that if you still want more power a blower or a Turbo is all that is really left.

I say get the AEM kit. The Celica has sucky low end and AEM
gives low end power. Just my 2 cents.
