    Since you are the car gza on this board and so many people ask you what they can do for their cars/trucks etc.

    What can I do for my car to make it more both show/speed? Remember it's the Mr2 mkii n/a.. so obviously a turbo would be a suggestion.. apexi cool air intake.. etc.

    Any other ideas from anyone that can make my car nicer? I will take new snap shots of it in a few days or so, so then you can decide. thanks. pz.

    Well since this is your ride and you have done all the things thus far i will not comment on what is already done.

    So my advice is tint...
    No seriously.. power wise might want to get the turbo from a turbo MR2 and see if it can be a easy bolt up job to your engine. Also what exhaust is that?
    Is it a true catback or just muffler?
    Performance wise i dont think you will be getting much out of it.
    Might want to get into suspension mods to make it handle even better. Sways, springs, shocks, new wheels.

    Looks like a MOMO shifter in there... might want a short shifter, and thats about it.

    If i were you i would get rid of the stickers, cause i would never advertise for a company that doesnt pay me to do that.

    Then a nice kit for your ride will look right...
    But definitely look into suspension, drop it with like eibach springs then some 17 inch black rims with a polished lip would look right. Well since this is RWD... might want to go staggered. That gives a nice agressive look to the car. like 17x7 front and 17 x 8.5 or 9 in the back with a 2.5/3 inch polished lip in the back..... Trust me that would look great on this car.

    I do want to tint it up.. so that's probably one thing I will do.

    It's an APEXi N1 Exaust System, it's a true catback.. the catalyc conv. was removed.. just so it would be louder.. huge pipe to front to back, ya kno.

    I've seen a 10s MR2 before, so they can get up there.. but I'd imagine that would cost alotta $$$.. which I don't have yet. heh

    I've been looking for nice kits and so far the Bomex body kits are pretty sweet looking, yeah it's a momo shifter too. I have the momo leather racing seats also..

    I'ma take ur advice tho on this and probably try to do everything that u mention and then when i like have a finished product then I can post new pics, but I'll get more pics soon enough so u can see the whole thing.. got a shift light in there too :)

    and it is already lowered with eibach springs :)

    Thats cool. The only other performance mod i know of is that you could get Header and what else.... another bodykit to look at is aeroware which is a 6piece kit i think.

    I will see if i can come up with more ish
