Know anything about this exhaust
I am looking to get some form of preformance part for my Celica, and was lookin into exhaust. I am not wantin to spend much over $200 and I was able to find this one on sale for $250. Was wondering if anyone knew anything about it, like how much it will help, or even what it sounds like. Or any other ood preformance mods I coult for the $200 price range. A'PEX WS 104-KT04 <----- Exhaust grin

thanks,
~Alex

If dual exhaust is good then tri must be even better...

A friend of mine has an A'PEX on his Civic. It sounds alright, nice and deep, buts its no TSRM, TRD or Evo.

For $199-$299, get a CAI. Much better than the exhaust you want. Or get an APR front strut bar $110 from Ecelica store for your cars handling. AEM tru power pulley kit $77 from Ecelica store. Save up some $$$ for those headers and exhaust. thumbsup

Feel a difference? I don't have one, but I know Isaac does. It stops your car from flexing when you turn and prevents understeer. Your car should feel a lot better with one. thumbsup

actually a rear strut will prevent understeer a front one alone will increase it.

its a mod to do to stiffer the chassis but get a back on to get the full effect.

The World Sport is no N1, but I guess it will be alright if your into exhaust noise. Should be quiter and I don't know the gains either. A strut bar isn't worth it if you only are going to spend now $200 on your car. For $200 I would either save up, invest the $200 in some high risk stocks and hope it pays of, or get some MTECHs and carbon fiber pieces. Maybe better brake pads? Go for around the $500-1000 mark to start making Performance parts choices. Save up a bit, you will be better off in the long run.

i have that exhaust...it looks pretty good not too crazy but the sound doesn't kick in until you're in high rpm so if you want something loud don't get it, as for power gains i have no idea because 19" rollers aren't exactly for racing so i can't tell if there is a gain or not
