well if you have a manual then go for the power! 6spd GTS has some great gains from simple Intake and exhaust. if ur an auto, like me, then well you can do a little of both, maybe lower your car and some exhaust or Intake thumbsup it really up to u, if you want more show than go apperance and stereo, if you want more go, then def. go for the power mods!

i would say Cold Air Intake for your next mod. And then do the tints cause TINT is a must lol

first thing i did was get some new gauges, paint the dash, get some sport pedals... but you are also gonna want at least an Intake (sr for sound and some performance or CAI for more performance). and you can do all that for under 300$!! thumbsup

s2000 antenna - 20$
paint calipers - 10$
custom cabin Air Filter - 13$
celica fill in sticker -7$
Tints - depends

these are all very simple mods that you can do yourslef for cheap besides the tints.(get them done by professionals) these are what i started out with. since the winter is here im just saving up for my wings west kit and some other shit like blue led gauges, Clear Corners, Mtecs etc...
