It really depends if you want to like make it a speedster and a beast under the hood, or just something that looks cool from the outside... really depends on which one...

Surprised no one has mentioned chip tuning... :2cents:

Im suprised no-one has mentionned any real mods and not just some bolt on's.

I would either A) Swap the enigne, or if the situation is right then B) Add forced induction.

...then go for exhaust and intake, when it will ACTUALLY make a difference. :2cents:

id acutally do it the other way, start with bolt-ons and then move on to f/i and chip flashes.

umm is thre a chance he would mean like, fix the broken and / or worn out crap. like a new O2 sensor in your high mileage vechile will restore more lost HP than some retarded "intake" system will. do a general overhaul first, then do whatever.

First do the maintanace like replace hoses, spark plugs, coils, and possible some parts of the wireing harness. Then (I dunno much about the years is it a MKIII with a 1JZ? and turbo?)

NA - Intake, headers, test pipes, cat back exhaust, ECU tune and buy some MKIV rims.
Turbo - Intake, down pipes, test pipes, cat back exhaust, ECU tune and MKIV rims.

if you are running on a budget, maybe start with some plugs that don't suck, wires/ignition items, air intake- whatnot. I have heard that those cars have a problem with rings going out a little sooner than they should (150-175K). I'm no expert, though.

for the price of an exhaust and intake systems, i would instead get a complete port job on the head

Used car?
I'd start with a tune up and decent tires.

New car?
Intake and low restriction exhaust. A quality setup shouldn't break you and usually results in a bit more power and better throttle response. Make sure the exhaust system you choose has been tuned for your car. Spending a bit extra here goes a long way.

Personally, I would get a performance header, cat-back exhaust system and a cold air intake to get the car breathing better. More air = more power

more info on this car...

personally I would do a 60K service (timing belt, plugs, cables, water pump, termo, etc, etc...) dont be stupid and start dropping money on a car without making sure it will stay in one piece....
