Oh yeah man. With all your basic performance mods, we should be able to get 140-150 to the wheel out of our little gas savers!!!

idk. i dont think ill be getting that much out of exhaust alone. that would mean getting 15-25 hp out of it. 5-10 hp sounds more realistic.

outside of the intake, pulley, and exhaust, idk what else it could get. maybe some management? ive never looked into that before.

you are correct sir! I may remove the catless midpipe because its too much noise for my new work commute.

I may go with something bigger but i need a hook up when it comes to emissions. so i have to play the waiting game.

true. funny thing is even with mods my mpg hasnt been affected at all. as for inspections, eh i dont think having one cat will drain that much hp gain. especially if it is high-flow anyway. after all the legal nonsense ill just do a test pipe to see how far it goes.

still looking for input on what else (besides turbo/supercharger/NOS) to up the power here too.

yea i figured lol. i imagine mine will be obnoxious too even with a cat. my dc sports axle-back isnt what i call conservative. finding hook ups for emissions is easy enough, but the only issue is keeping those hook ups.

what were the numbers associated with the long-tube headers + midpipe (like hp gains?)

i was fine with the trd catback alone. respectable low tone on the highway. dont get me wrong. longtube headers nd no cat sounds badass but school and work was all within the city. but yea i think my emissions doesnt come up till the next winter. so having a hook up then is lookin iffy. hp gains on the corolla was like somewhere between 8-10hp with the cats.

sounds about right. still deciding to either go long or short tube header. i dont know enough yet to make a definite decision.

Whats a long-tube diff from say a short tube? And the mid pipe with no cat, what about resonator?

maybe not power, but for efficiency or say better performance....i think. You could look into a flywheel, and or short shifter?

still researching the long vs short tube headers. a straight midpipe is basically just x diameter piping to your muffler. resonators are used to dampen noise, but still cause flow disruption. cats control emissions, but also restrict flow. around here id go cat only due to emissions.

already have a short shift. it was so worth it in every way, especially with our long shifts. as for a lighter flywheel i havent heard anything great about them. it will free up rotational mass but at the cost of daily drivability. not sure i want to take that step, especially around here when traffic is a pain.

If you don't have it look into an engine dampener. Not going to add HP but will help lessen the engine movement under acceleration and plant more power to the ground.

i have a rear sway. helped tremendously in corners after i lowered. injectors eh. adding more fuel wont do much i dont think, besides make it run rich. the stock ecu would still probably put out the same amount anyway. clutch kit i actually was looking into, but no huge need until something like you said. and even then its not always required.

i was thinking about that when i saw the pulls. engine did like to move around a bit. didnt someone do that on here? i dont think they make any specifically for us.
