More Power

Already done the obvious-CAI, EXHAUST, PULLEYS, GROUNDING WIRES, HEADER and Im looking at the Greddy e-manage. However, before I tune I want to get as much N/A stuff done as I can. As far as I know there is no real fuel stuff I can/should do, and I will probably do the pistons/rods/bushings down the road. What do you guys all recommend? Your thoughts would be appreciated.

you already got the basics,so
1)if you want to do the pistons and rods,i would go for it.but since you would have to lift the head off,you can do some

2) "mild" port/polishing work to it,and

3) get an arp bolt kit while you at it.

4)the pistons that you would be changing to,get them ceramic coated,its cheap,cause its only four. you might want to squeeze a little nitro on them later! to me,if you are about to go into the motor,you should try to do as much stuff as possible(within reason)

5)check the lift bolts and replace them as well.

6) if you want a cheap couple of horses/torque. when the head is off,buy a role of exhaust wrap,2 inches wide by 1/8 thick. wrap the header,down pipe,cat,mid pipe,and exhaust all the way back to the flange on the greddy(thats the last flange not the first where it bolts to the stock mid pipe)
7)good luck wink

on a side note: i'd buy a new clutch (like ACT street).

it only adds a few horses (if that) so it won't necessarily come into play when tuning your car. but with the mods you have plus if you do the ones above as people mentioned...it might do you good for the increased power (stock clutch is kind of weak, and if you plan on driving your car hard--especially off of the line--it would help)

You can add a fuel magnet, Isaac has some infor around here on it. That is something you could do with the fuel. You could also invest in an aftermarket fuel pump (see the hodgkins 300hp celica for fuel pump suggestion). Otherwise start saving for an xs turbo.
