Ok need help with preformance parts for my GT

Ok I'm really not to sure on preformance parts, I made a list out but I'm not to sure on what I want for the car,um I need to know whats the best Cold Air Intake and Headers, and Exhaust, and Power Pulley Kits. Intake I'm not too sure, I dont Injen or AEM, I know AEM give about 1-3hp, but I'm not to sure on the Injen, Headers, I'm not to sure on the hp scale from what I think It gives me about 10 extra horsepower, or 20 extra horsepower... From what I can tell I think AEM Power Pulley are the best for horsepower and low on troque, Exhaust I was thinking about the Apexi N1 Exhaust with a Sliencer, Then I was thinking about gettin that DD Turbo, and I wanna know what would be the best for psi level for all the turbo pro's out there, from what I've been told by fellow members I can get it up to 270hp, but I want to atleast 300hp if thats possible, but what my other concerns are the preformance chips, The Celica V-Force Power Control Module, Celica and Computer Chip Upgrade. So people help me out plz. grin

YIKES...slow down buddy.

-Injen and AEM are the best Intakes. I prefer Injen. Its 50-50, but it seems that AEM has problems with the CEL light often.
- Header, Hotshot is the only reliable company for the GT
- Pullies, UR has a great set that will give you more hp/tq than AEM. But those require the crank pulley to be replaced which will get rid of your harmonic balancer/dampner which lowers engine life. AEM pulley won't do much for your car, but every little bit helps.
- Exhaust, Apexi has good exhaust for custom and all that good stuff. TRD and Tanabe have the best dyno numbers. Its all your call. I think a straigh through custom exhaust would be great considering its very light and straight through.
- As for turbo, 7psi for daily driving, 10psi for track use. This is on stock internals. With better tuning, you may be able to get better numbers.
- You will then need a clutch with this, and you might as well get a flywheel and LSD.
- Do not exclude you suspension! or Brakes, a fast car needs some stopping power.

Hope that helps

ACT and RPS have great clutches. Get a 4 puck or street clutch. I would get TOMS flywheel personally, if RPS makes a chromolly, I would debate on those two, probably can't go wrong with them. Some company that starts with a K has an LSD, but I would trust the TRD one.
Suspension is your call. If you want great performance suspension, then Hotchkis is the way to go. They specialize in the celica.
As for brakes. Since you are in a GT, you will need a conversion for the rears. Brembo has good brakes, AEM makes brakes I believe (I would trust them).
