If you've ordered the exhaust already, oh well. If you haven't, I'd get the TRD exhaust. It has better gains and it's not as loud. Headers, I'd wait for TPR's. They're going to be badass. The Intake, I'd buy TPR's, they've had better results than Injen and AEM. You could also go with a fidanza flywheel, AEM Pulleys, and a small shot of nitrous (if hidden properly, no one will know). There are Turbocharger kits, but god help you trying to hide one of those. Hope this helped. grin

Intake - TPR
exhaust - TPR or TRD
header - TPR or Hotshot

(notice a trend?) wink


AEM pulley, lighter clutch and flywheel, Carbon Fiber Hood and other weight reduction, B&M short shifter, 50 shot of nitrous (if that's your thing)

- if you're considering F/I, don't opt for a s/c imo - go with the c2gas stage 1 Turbo kit. That'll net you a little over 200 hp. Stage 2 includes upgraded internals and will hit 250 easy...

sleeper? then go nitrous and hide the solenoids, hide the nozzle on the underside of your Intake, paint the stainless lines black and tie them up to the frame, and hide the bottle in the spare tire compartment (get a 5 lb or less bottle...you can fit a 10 lb with some modification to your car which you may not want to do). oh and do hide the switch...like say in your ash tray compartment (this will take some wire routing and drilling).
and bolt down your carpet on top of your spare tire compartment so they can't take a peek even if they tried haha.

people can hear a Turbo spool and the blow off valve if you have one which you should, so I wouldn't say Turbo is good for sleeper.

yes PFC. definitely. do a search or just look at the sticky right there in front of you.

I get my kicks on EC.

for your breather mods, i'd get everything TPR - headers, Intake, exhaust.
