What other mods can I do to my car?
I'm running out of options. Here is my list so far:

Performance:
-custom 2.5" cat back exhaust

Suspension:
-Tein S.Tech 1.5" drop all the way around

Appearance:
-s2000 antenna
-TYC black housing tails
-35% tint on front 2 windows, 5% on all back windows
-red celica rear fill in sticker
-6500k h3/h7 blue bulbs

Next mod: AEM Gen 2 CAI



Any advice on what else I can get? By the way, I am staying away from a body kit and rims because they are too expensive and I have more important things I have to spend my money on (school).

I was thinking some Clear Corners. I'm going with a red and black appearance for my car so that takes away the possibility of new gauges (since they are white faced, blue at night). Are there any red bulbs I can buy to change the interior of my car red?

Thanks for any advice.

PS I would get some pics but it is too dark right now and the pictures do not come out right.

I'm not familiar with sway and strut bars. What exactly are those? What do they do? How much? etc.

More info please. HOW do they improve handling, where do you install them, how hard is the install, do they improve handling better than a drop?

keeps your celica cornering flat..these bars add stiffness..and you install them on the shocks

HOTCHKISS SWAY BARS

The sport sways (front and rear) are computer designed and road engineered to allow deep corner braking, excellent neutral handling and a precision to cornering that does not exist in most other products for the Celica. Track tested, street quality and a quick install make this a hot product for those interested in true suspension upgrades.

they help from body roll...and you have to get under the car to get it on which is not hard

STRUT BAR
Significantly reduces front-end body flex at the towers. Noticeable difference in handling

mounts when you open the engine the two circles near the top corners

both help more than springs but with springs its even better handleing

hope this helped thumbsup
