ok, while we are on the subject i am 20 and i own a house a truck and my celica i am married, and i have baby so that doesnt leave a lot of money left over for my passion of cars. granted i would never do anything to my car that i havent researched a lot so whoever puts a leafblower in their car is not helping their cause for more hp if they would do the research but if something is inexpensive and in my pricerange and is better than stock then why not get it but if you dont have a lot of money to spend then spend it wisely on a good product -for the record fast and furious cant be blamed for everything i for one have loved cars ever since i can remember but i am sure that back in the hot rod days people were doing stupid things and there was no fast and furious...
That's def. true. The way I see it though, some things that are cheao can be BAD for your car, know what I mean. For me I paid for my car and I pay for all the stuff I do to it, like most people on here. It seems irresponsible to take a piece of machinery that you could have spent around $25,000 for, and then start throwing on $35 exhausts and Intakes
just because. It's not so much that people do it, it's that this proliforates the idea that everything in autos is the same and it's not. There is a difference between a well designed Intake
and just some random pipe that ends up in your wheel well. Will both SOUND the same sure, but SOUND doesn't mean performance, moreover, just cause your car feels better doesn't necessarily mean it is actually better. It's one thing to do something tacky that others don't believe in, it's another thing to compromise the mechanical integrity of your vehicle.
