These Right?

Just wondering if these "facts" are actaul facts or not, if they arent then plese tell me what they really are, thanks:

-Breather mods don't make an Auto GTS faster (CAI)
-Breather mods are mods that let your engine "breath" making it cooler for more RPM's
-Breather mods may actually make an Auto GTS slower
-Some other really good cars come with a sportshift option, like the celica GTS
-Some cars with a sportshift aren't affected by the sportshift at all, making it the exact equivilent of the manual car
-You can't add more gears to a sportshift
-Toyotas sportshift tranny's come with a maximum of 5 gears but only on V6 engines
-A shift kit cost's around $79 dollars
-Most tranny swaps are done on old cars
-"old" cars start around 1990?
-accesories can slow down a car
-accesories can make a car fly (literally, what I mean is if you got a wing that isn't working with the wind and is actually making your car go up instead of creating a vacume keeping it on the ground)

- No, they still help top-end
- Not sure exactly the question here
- Yes and no. Many will take away low-range torque, and add high-end HP
- Yes, many do. Cars ranging from the Audi TT to the Enzo use touch shifters... just far more advanced versions.
- Sort of. Audi (I believe) makes the most advanced touch shifter... it basically uses a system of two clutches and shifts faster than a manual could, although not always as smoothly
- Pretty sure this is true
- I know the IS300 has the same shifter we have, with 5 gears on an I-6 engine
- "Shift kit"?
- It's not economical to do a swap on a 7th gen GTS. It's cheaper to sell your auto and buy a stick
- hahaha... these questions are getting odd
- Weight slows down a car. This includes your "accesories"
- Most body kits aren't very aerodynamic, period.

yup as RevMonster most body kits won't help.. in fact I think it was Lucky who had a body kit and took it to the track.. then but back on his stock kit...

his stock kit was actually faster happywink
