Mods
Hey ppl. I just ordered a strut tie bar and i have $1250 left. I'm gonna spend it on mods and i just wwanted some suggestions. I was thinking of getting headers, custom exhaust, and nitrous. I already have a CAI. I cant lower my car because my driveway it too steep. Anyone got ideas. I want performance mods as apposed to show mods.

yeah..gotta agree with insane...if your not gonna use it much, it'll just get in the way. plus its not exactly cheap and its not something thats a one-time cost (you gotta keep buying the stuff over & over, and it does not last long at all)

i'll end up having like 500 left. I'm getting a custom exhaust not a catback so it'll be cheaper.

Apex'I N1 is a good popular muffler. Tanabe racing spec is also good, which is the one i'm gonna be getting. I think HKS has some universal ones too, but some say they rust quickly. thumbsup

Why dont you do some more suspension mods like... sway bars, rear strut bar...and even though you driveway is steep you could prolly get the TRD springs thumbsup

If you scrape pulling into the driveway buy a board and cut into into about 12 inch length. If necessary stack a couple and nail them together. Just drive on top of them when you pull in.
