you can start with simple mods, like getting an s2000 antenna, Clear Corners, reding out he tails, etc.

Then you should start thinking about lowering it, because it does wonders. Suspension, CAI, exhaust, rims, body kit, beat, etc..

hey bro welcome. Tails = tailights. Check out my profile, got some cheap starter mods smile deff invest in Intake, will love the sounds wether its Short Ram or full cold air (cold air is longer, goes into wheel well) Also Clear Corners are cheap (Ebay $20) and most of all go too www.bluebatmobile.com and go to celica, has the best vinyl overlays and all oyu woudl ever need smile props to bluebat, love the new Z smile Ebay is a good place to get ideas even if oyu dont buy stuff from it, you can see cheap knockoffs of good stuff smilejsut search celica.

Intteror footwell neons: https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_1869836811_0_collapsed_2__1.html

$12, bought exact same ones fomr that site, installe din half hour, look sawsome.

Prettymuch that, Clear Corners, differnt bubls, and bluebat vinyls is all you can get for liek $20 a piece.

Also look in the installs for painting engine and intterior. cheap and looks great.

if you want the most noticeable preformance..buy sway bars. the celicas handles are really awsome..they will make more of a difference than lowering the car.if you dont want to spent more than $150 you can get the ST REAR sway for $120 new..you might also find a used one for around $80. OH YEAh the S2K antenna is the 1st mod most people get. Mine was a CAI thumbsup

He means making the rear tail lights red in color such as the amber signal section or the reverse clear lense. thumbsup

-Short Ram is looks and sound.
-Cold air is Performance and sound.
-Short Ram takes less effor to install becaue cold has to go in the wheel well.
-If you were to drive through like a foot of water you coudl swamp a cold air and lock up ur engine (hydrolock) but that rairly happens smile
-Have to get a heatchield with Short Ram or else you will jsut be getting really got hair form engine compared to semi hot with heatsheidl.(Examples of heatshields are the chrome hosuing around the ingen Short Ram in the intalls galler. Also if you look in my profile, the carobn fiber piece behind my Intake is a RMM heatshield.
-If you go on ebay both are aobut the same price, but i think if you go for a name brand, shoret ram is more $ for some reason.
-Ebay have shortrams for liek 50 total with shipping and liek 30 or 40 for cold airs. But if you buy a n ebay you may have to do bluebombers isntall, its under install secion under perfect cold air.

Hope this helps.
