Best TRD parts?

I have an 02 GTS and parents have me on lockdown about some aftermarket engine parts. I talked to some of my guys up at the dealership and they said i can get any TRD part and get them to install it and it will be under warranty. For those of you w/ experience in TRD parts, what would be my best bet to start increasing the power and speed of my car? Thanks rice

The HKS cat-back is good also. You dont have to stick to TRD to keep from having you warranty voided. Dont let them feed you a line. I have all kinds of aftermarket shit on mine and just had warranty work done last week and they didnt say anything. But to answer your question, the catback is good, but if you want to turn some heads, get the AEM CAI kit. Makes your car roar.

true...Intake and exh will not void the waranty if you install them yourself. but when it comes to lowering, electrical work (s-afc), tranny work, etc those types will void your waranty unless the dealer does the work. oh and if you chose the rev limiter conv...you can kiss the whole thing good buy!!!

No you dont have to get the extended, but since you have a body kit I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

Because otherwise the exhaust would sit behind you back bumper. Which is bad thumbsdown

smile I have a TRD Extended on a stock bumper right now and it looks great !!!! thumbsup

get the ext exh. there's no bypass for the AEM CAI for our cars. so you can mark that off your list.

So do any of you know if TRD Japan will be making headers for the GT'z? are the TRD headers better than the AMSS or Hotshot? and how so? thanx
