Need opinions about upcoming mods
Ok, guys. I bought the 03 GTS (6spd) a week ago. I am ready to buy my Intake and springs. I am going for the Injen CAI and Eibach sportline springs (I hear about 2" drop). Any opinions? Are there other brands you guys would recommend more? I had Eibach springs on my Max and thought they were great.

Thanks!!!

Melissa

Get a TRD or Tanabe Super Racing Medallion exhaust.
Buy the Injen Race Divison Intake or buy the Injen Shortram Intake.
As for springs, I would recommend the TRD which lower it 1.5", the Eibach "Pro-Kit" which lowers the car 1.2" front and 1.1" rear, or the Eibach "Sportline" which lower it 1.8" front and 2.4" rear. The Sportline are pretty low, I have seen a celica with them, I don't recommend them for Maryland weather. Best bet is anything 1.5" or higher. TRD, the Pro-kit and there are some others. TRD looks the best with the action package since you have one, go with TRD.

I have the Injen and Sportline Combo. Works well with TRD bodykit. Add a TRD exhaust, and we'll have the same setup. hehehe... thumbsup

Well...as far as Intake goes...I went with the AEM because I read many reviews about it being better than the Injen, even though the Injen adds 1 hp or so more at top end...the AEM absolutely kills it down low, so in the end I found that the AEM was best. The best exhausts out there are the TRD and TSRM(which is what I have). They have almost the same gains, but the TSRM sounds 100 times better, in my opinion it does. And for springs, it all depends how low you want to go. Hope I helped you out. See ya.

Thanks. You guys helped a lot. But I am thinking about coilovers instead - how do you guys feel about the Skunk2?

I have ground controls on mine and I didn't had any problems with it, i think skunk2's are stiffer than GC coilovers... cool
