I'll second that, the apr is really good from what I hear. It's the one I'm going to get.

It's worth it.. i had the APR, the RMM and now the Carbing and all perform equally nice..
I recommend APR just cause it's the cheapest to purchase of the 3 happywink though carbing the lightest at 2lbs. tasty

yeah, i got one on the way. should be here in a day or two. anything that isaac sells in the e-celica store is good stuff, so you can trust the quality (and the price thumbsup).

It looks hot, and tightens up that front end even more, you can do sharp turns at about 7-10mph faster and not lose control at all

What about how it blocks air from the Hood scoop? How much of a concern should that be.

It's not at all, the Hood scoop is just for looks anyway

well it's not entirely for looks. it does take in air and some of that air does make it behind the engine. it won't make a major difference.

Yeah i know about losing performance but my question is if it is pointless to get an apr strut with 18's.
