Hella horns installed

I've only had this Yaris for less than a month, but I had to install some Hellas!

Also installed a Die hard Platinum battery(P5). I love it when a plan comes together!

I hear what your saying! But I bought this Yaris because I was racking up way too many miles on my Land Cruiser(Fj62).

I have a Honda VFR800(5th gen) with 117 wrhp. It's has a p2w ratio of a HP to every 4 pounds. It will smoke 95% of cars out there.

So the bike is for speed.
The LC is for snow/off-road.
And the Yaris is for looking cute(did I say that out loud?), and a great A~B car. But I really like the Yaris! Everything about is cool.

My grandfather loved trains. He found some place that could get horns that were custom made to sound as close to the sound of a Southern Pacific locomotive as possible. Whenever he bought a new car, he'd order another horn and have it installed in the new car. He'd leave the previous 'SP horn' in the previous car when he traded it in.

I was thinking about the sickspeed knockoff horns just because they come in yellow(matching my engine bay)...but I don't want to worry about them crapping out on me.

You really don't need much to install them. At most you will need a bolt for the second horn mounting hole on the upper radiator frame (you reuse the one that the OEM horn is mounted with, but there is a second threaded hole next to it that you mount the second horn to), and one ring terminal to crimp onto the two ground wires for the two new horns, and then slip under the head of one of the mounting bolts.

I mounted one using the stock horn position then drilled a hole and bolted the other on in evenly spaced on the other side of the Toyota sambrero emblem. Just get some wire and a soldering iron and its super easy to set it all up. The MI set comes with the two horns, a relay and a generic install guide iirc. I found a really easy to follow diagram for an "electrically challenged newb" like me. All laid out. I'll see if I can get a link to it

In response to performance, there are many aspects to "performance" than just Hp and torque. These horns always impress my friends when I get them to get close to see what they see in the grill then I hit the horn hah. It definitely outperforms the stock horn and gets people to hear you coming when they cut you off.
