mike... please report back on how much of a difference the front/rear strut tower braces... and then the under body braces make. I'm thinking about buying some.

Are you doing all these changes at once? If so I guess you won't be able to tell what part caused what improvement... :blush:

Well I already have the pro-kit, PLP strut bars and rear trunk bar installed. I did notice a bit of improvement in handling.

And the parts that I'm waiting to install I'll probably install all at once while I have the car in the air.

And if anyone is interested in TRD front and rear underbody braces let me know because I have an extra sent at home! ;)

2008

- I have already got the system, but the sub is homelessly laying in the back.

2 p2 rockford subs
Rockford amp
custom box
Sell my Bootleg Dual DVD player for a full open screen
run SOME type of amp to my stock speakers as the original was taken out and they sound like ASS!

Interior

I am considering gettin some graphics ( A crown ) stiched into the front head rest.

Get a custom leather Black Lexus Baby seat for the rear.

Engine

- PSSSSSSSSSSSSSTCHOOOOOOOOOOOO!! ( thats all i have to say )

Exterior

Now with our new buddy " eightyeight Wheels" i am Considering getting a staggered set up ( same black with chrome lip )
- Tints
- Front lip
- Grill
-TRD spoiler

Suspension

Im really really looking at gettin the Tein Adjustable coil over
- front and rear sways



The one mod i am very very iffy about is getting Just one Sparco ( or any racing seat with a four point harness ) installed for me. for the days i just wanna whip around. What do you guys suggest?

After that who knows i might gut the car, and just have a seat for my son and I for track days..hehehehehe

My main goals are to get custom intercooled, and finish off the kit.

There are a bunch of other plans, but I'll leave that as a surprise for now :)

not to get in to too much detail as it will be a thread on it's own.

in my possession waiting to be installed:
alarm/starter- starter done, alarm needs to be finished (when done, only way the car is leaving my possession is on a tow truck)
full system (completely redoing everything that is stock)
sway bars

purchased, waiting in transit:
Tein EDFC
front and rear bbk
jdm smoked trunk lights

still need to purchase, but pretty much decided on which to get:
jdm antenna
front bumper
side skirts
rear lip
hood

already installed, but need to be adjusted:
coilovers (adjust ride height after winter)
rims (final fitment to eliminate rubbing when slammed)

damnit, i knew i shouldn't have procrastinated. i'm probably looking at atleast a months worth of work ahead of me.

there's a bunch of other things that i want to do to, but time and more importantly money will tell. i'm trying to give TDS_IS a run for his money.... lol :p

all of this, and i've only owned the car 8 months. oh man, i could've paid off the car by now.

yah you're telling me, my system setup alone is a long enough list.

the jdm smoked trunk lights (circle ones) i bought from a member in vancouver, who got it off chado (ggp modellista)

not to be confused with the tailights, which i also have the JDM smoked/black chrome/dark chrome (whatever you wanna call it, it's all the same to me).

i got those from nigellll (ibp modellista).
