Ok, so here is what's going on. This afternoon i met with Carl @ SpeedSource here in champaign, IL... if you do not know who he is quick summary look @ our sponsors and he is there, did the 3s-gte camry with Alex and it is sick!

Carl and I were talking and we are looking into producing some parts of the Gen 4 1MZ-FE... now i know people on the boards are always looking for hot parts and stuff that is not really on the market, so this is a chance to REALISTICALLY give me ideas and desires over what you want produced... I have some ideas with Carl and we are going to look into them in the future, but here is what you guys can do...

1) tell about a part you would want for the Gen4V6 or a universal Gen4 part...
2) Why you want it...
3) How much you would really pay for it...

The thing i have noticed on the forum is many people want all kinds of stuff and then want it for unrealistically low prices... I understand that is a desire, but this thread is not going to be like that. PLEASE do not respond " i want a full turbo kit for $1200"... "i want a carbon fiber body kit for $300" etc. etc. I am not saying the camry crowd is good or bad with $$$, but understand that parts take R&D and fabrication and really good things cost real money, but that is ok...

A couple ideas, just thrown out there are a new engine cover, perhaps heat shield in aluminum or titanium... new covers for fuse box, powersteering etc. in aluminum or titanium.. etc. So throw out some ideas, i will see what happens, it will be a little bit before we get going on stuff due to his shop in the works, his projects and my school. BUT, this is a realistic chance to have parts potentially produced from our desires, so take advantage and hit me with some ideas... no promises that anything will be made or not, or costs etc. just ideas guys

Ok guys, see this is good, i will see what we can do with a gen4 projector headlight... you other guys posting, how much would you be willing to pay, i really need to know since there is no point in produciing and seriously considering if the money is not there, somebody said $250... anyone else got an amount? Remeber that projectors would cost more than the simple "clear halos" you see on ebay... i am not sure if we could do a high and low projector, since the stock is an H4 single bulb you know... only wiring for one, but i have an idea on what to do, so thanks, more feedback welcome... Anybody interested in any parts they would like to see aluminum or titanium?

i agree with the clear headlights. I would be willing to pay around $175-$200. If that seems reasonable.

I was also thinking about asking if you guys can make poly-urathane (if that's how you spell it) bodykits, not fiberglass. I'd love to have a bodykit like the r34 in poly. instead of f/g

i am pretty sure we will not do any sort of body kit production... carl is more oriented towards engine parts, which makes sense, since the demand for engine parts is greater as opposed to body kits, which are out there @ the moment.. we want to produce things nobody else it, or things that are much better

Polueurethane motor mounts and strut mounts would be nice as well as a polyeurethane bushing kits for our cars. Or are these already out yet?

Nice clear projector headlights! the reason is, it makes for safer driving, and makes it possible for HID light upgrade for awesome light on the road, and will make the cars entrance far more attractive... there needs to be a couple altezza style tail lights for the 97-99, my brother has a 98, and he's so bummed out theres only altezza tail lights for the 00-01 camry, and to the fact, theres not much if any exterior things he can do to his.

I would pay up to 200 for clear headlights w/ projector style for the gen 4. I have seen the clear/euro style rears for about 180, which I think is too much for taillights.
Also a good cat -back would be nice, for under 300
