I'd do exhaust before an intake personally

Cold air intakes can be like the snake oil of performance modifications on some cars. These cars have 2 cats and a very restricting muffler. A full exhaust from the block to the rear bumper is going to make more power. Header 2" exhaust high flow cat and a straight through muffler will greatly increase efficiency of the exhaust stroke

Curious what the legalities are of both mods. I've read here on the forum that the CAI will typically be overlooked at the smog shop, but is easy to put back to stock to pass the test. Some folks report nice gains on the dyno too. Header back on the other hand might be a bit more trouble in the smog bay, no? I am in CA after all.

Interesting...

Something else to research and think about, thank you.

Nice photo! It's always nice to have some background perspective around the focus of a picture, instead of a overly-close-up shot - which tend to make most cars look strange/bulgy due to camera-lens distortion. I like the design of the house in the shot also.

Thanks...fav part is how dramatically better the car looks from all angles. Least fav part is the rubbing I get. It's not terrible, but I'm looking to get it sorted out.

I agree. It's actually not a house, it's 4 condo units. They're in a nice golf community we're staying at for a bit while my better half works the area.

Looks really nice! What size wheels do you have? And how much did the springs set you back?

Thanks. I've got 17" wheels. The springs were $200, but I've seen new and used sets of the same springs go for less here on the forum (after I bought mine, of course lol).

I've got 17" wheels on mine and was wanting to lower mine, so knowing how yours is will help me be less hesitant on making mine look better lol

I love it. It's made me stoked on my car again.

Only thing to keep in mind is your wheel offset. I got the wheels before I was sure about lowering, so I didn't pay attention to offset, I was just going for a specific look. Now that I'm lowered, since the wheels aren't the right offset, I get a bit of rubbing in certain situations. If you lower it and your 17's aren't the proper offset for the drop, you might also get some rubbing. In my case, it hits near the outside, just before the actual painted fender, on the plastic wheel well. It's caused some light wearing of the plastic, but per inspection by a wheel and tire shop, isn't doing any significant damage and is not a potentially dangerous situation. I just have to live with a little rub sound here and there. If your 17's aren't the right offset, you should think about how much an occasional rub might annoy you and furthermore, depending on your wheels, might even have to think about changing them if it's to the point where it's doing significant damage. I'm by no means a gear head / expert, but that's the info I've gathered in my experience. Just something to think about.

No pics of your car yet?

I got my wheels 3 months after getting the car in July of 2007. My only concern was that they had multiple spokes that went all the way out to the edge lip of the wheel. I have no idea what the offset is or what the exact dimensions are. All I know is they are 17" and made by BSA Motorsports. I guess it's possible that either the offset is wrong, or they're too wide.
