Hey man, what's up, welcome to the boards!! For the exhaust, I would go with the Tanabe Super Racing Medallion exhaust (that's what I have), it gives the same hp gains as the TRD
exhaust, but it sounds a hell of a lot better, very deep and throaty...it's awesome. As a matter of fact, I just checked the site where I bought my TSRM at, and there is still a special on this exhaust. It is $435 including shipping and handling. Which is a hell of a good deal considering that this exhaust retails at about $550, though I have actually seen it even higher. It is a great exhaust, so much better sounding than the TRD
, though the same power gains. And as far as the Intake
goes, I would save up and go with the AEM Cold Air Intake
if I were you (once again, that is what I have), it is really a great system and I got very noticeable power gains from it. I never even heard of anybody doing that thing your friend did with the K&N and the stock Intake
wierd. Well, good luck with whatever you decide to do, and if you need any more help, I will be more than willing to do whatever I can to assist you. Peace man.
P.S. oh yeah, that site with the exhaust special... www.afsmotorsports.com
also, the price on the site says $450 for the TSRM, but it is really $435, the price on the site is wrong. If you decide to order it, just call them instead of sending an order by mail, it's so much easier. [ 02-02-2003, 08:52 PM: Message edited by: thedoc092 ]
