i need help deciding

after mowing lawns this summer im going to have just enough money for one mod to my celi which will be first and possibly/probably only mod to it. i really like reading up on mods and stuff but i cant see myself sining too much into it.

anyway, im trying to decide between the TRD muffler or the TRD lowering springs. i have a gt auto (yes i know its slow) so im not really looking for straight line performance but i do like a beefier exhaust note. also ill probably be able to edge out my friends prelude if i had the exhaust hehe. but what kind of stuff would i notice from the springs? less leaning in turns? i just want to buy the upgrade that will really give me a sense of pleasure. i want to be able to tell i modded it when i drive it.

if i could only get one mod, then i'd probbbbably get the TRD exhaust...wait, you only want the muffler? i don't know how much gain or sound that would make, but i'd probably still get that...although suspension mods are really nice and fun to ride with spineyes

Why don't you get a better job and get the TRD springs and the TRD Exhaust?

Muffler...
you would definitely notice it while driving... but not feeling it like a stick shift...

But I would go for the muffler.

Got money to kill? save it for the downpayment!!!

Why would you only have enough money for 1 mod? There is a huge difference between the price of the springs and the exhaust. Springs around $200, and exhaust around $500. If I were you I would get the exhaust, but if you get the springs maybe you can get another mod...But thats up to you rice

true...for the parts itself. install for springs brings the price for them way up if you dont have hookups.
