is that a good deal?
It sounds pretty good.

Should I get a TRD one?
Just because its TRD doesn't mean its any better. Many times TRD just has another company make it and TRD puts their sticker on it.

anyone with the sway bars noticed a difference?
Sway bars reduce body roll. Ppl w/ this have said they got better performance/handling.

anyone have a cold intake and notice a good differnce?
Im not really a fan of these because when you get a supercharger or turbo you gotta take it off. So its kind of a waste of money. But supposedly they can add like 10-15 hp. You will notice a difference though. The CAI (cold air intake) also makes a sound which some ppl find annoying.

what are the usual price range for these items?
Strut tower bars you can get for like 20 bucks used but it is hard to find that deal so 27 New is pretty good.

Sway bars are about 100-150$ USD.

You can make your own CAI for about 40 w/ same results but will not look as good. A CAI branded should run about 150-200$ USD.

Please, Most of these questions could be answered using that flashing button at the top of your screen. Also could have looked at the Camry FAQ a little. :thumbup:

1. It's Ractive... you can buy that shit at Circuit City. You tell me if it's a good deal.

2. TRD doesn't make a strut tower bar for Gen3.

3. Sway bars will make a huge difference. That link is NOT a sway bar, it's a strut tower bar.

4. CAI, in general, will give you a little more top end, and possibly reduce low-end torque. If you want to drag, I say don't do it... If you like that rush when you hit 5k rpm, go for it. Plus you'll get the sound, which is pretty sweet.

5. That's the general price you'll find for a strut tower bar for a Gen3, since there aren't really any high quality (Cusco & such...) ones. Sway bar's will run from $100ish (Whiteline 21mm) to $140ish (TRD 19mm adjustable).

CAI's don't reduce power from the bottom end, not unless you use completely over-sized tubing. I've noticed an actual increase in power with my bottom end from my CAI.

On the topic of the tower bars, the ractive is ok but there are much better bars out there, but be prepared for at least 2x the cost.

Huh. I love that CAI sound. There are two different sounds though. You have the hissing sound when idling and the loud open throttle sound. The hissing sound is not really noticeable on the V6 because of the AFM but you can hear it very loudly on the i4. I love both sounds. Everybody has there own opinion on it. Swaybars make a small.

search for whatever car you have then search for strut bars on that car, that's what will fit your car. ebay strut bars are usually crap. I don't know what to suggest for toyotas for strut bars, I haven't been into tuning toyotas as much as my hondas.

RM's probably his best bet, also the most expensive.
