i agree with rice powered. new struts/shocks, springs (or just coilovers), sway bars, camber kits, strut bars, bushings and tires. then there's the ususal clutch and flywheel (lsd if you have the funds), Intake, exhaust and cat, and probably header. hardcore stuff like port & polish, pistons and rods, turbo or sc, etc.. would be lower on the list for me.

Hp gains are hard to get out of the celica so I gotta go with suspension mods as well. The Celica can handle like a beast!

handling is what the celica is all about...that's what it beat the RSX Type S in...but for hp it didn't...suspension mods all the way.

For what kind of suspension ... what kind of performance are you looking to get out of it ?

and

For the short shifter the best available would have to be the one made by TWM Performance
