The TRD exhaust will go well with the Injen Intake. If you do not have a system then go with some pullies (AEM alternator pulley). That will help with the low end a tad. For high end get the header (Hotshot). With the Intake and exhaust the header will give good benefits on the high end part. thumbsup

what he said is about all you can really get, unless you wanted to go all out. You can also do some handling upgrades...sway bars and such.

This is true. Do not exclude suspension from making your ride a performance machine. Suspension plays a major role.

get an AEM Intake over an Injen. U lose a little down low from Injen. AEM is a better choice for autosmatics.

wait wait get a rocket engine and duct tape it to the top of the car!! spineyes Just joking smile
Seriously though, Intake, exhaust, headers are a great start. I'm looking into some stuff to help out our auto's right now. Looks like maybe a new torque converter and some other stuff and we could raise that auto stall speed up to about 3500 RPM. That will give us a much better jump off the line.

if you're all show and no go, an exhaust and Intake won't do much. Get a turbo.
