Hi everyone~~~ I'm picking up my new 05' echo hatchback next week. I test drove the car, it's such a blast to drive:) . But it will be great to add some power and handling to the car. I'm thinking of cold air intake, lowering springs and 15' rims... any good suggestions? thanks~

hot air intake
lift kit
10" rims
5 sandbags

:lol:

yeh im a smartass....but seriously....the aem cai and the borla exhaust add a decent amount of power and gives it a nicer sound, they are a little pricy from toyota so try and find them from their oem manufacturers.

Generally when you buy crappy springs your ride sucks the big one, I would always recomend investing in a good suspension setup even if you have to wait a bit. I see you are in Canada, where in Canada?

Anything made for the Xa and XB from suspension, exhaust and intakes can be used on the Echo Hatchback...
