Seems like a good place to dump my new reworked signature!
I mean, to show my current car to collectively enjoy the experiance with other users :)


Yes there are a couple of photoshoped elements, but not many. :)
Mainly just the fan speed because at the time of the picture it wasnt working, but it is now! :D

1997 Toyota Avalon XL :]

Hi




1997 toyota avalon xl 160,200 miles. short-ram intake, cheap cherry bomb muffler, DIY "tinted" tail lights, metallic "aqua" tint? (was already on car when purchased), 1.8" drop on vogtland lowering springs, black sandblasted stock wheels, 120k HID kit, Prestige Security System, power acoustik ptid-5800 5.8" touch screen media player, 2 12" SPX Audio Subs, 2.2 Diesel Audio Farad capacitor, Diesel Audio Tweeters, 4" Fusion EN-FR4020 speakers, and mtx 4300x amp.

Future Mods? Thinking about changing gauges, changing whole interior trim, and maybe interior lighting?

I bought my '95 Avalon XLS in 10/2006 with 189K on it. It was in ok shape. I could not pass it up. My DD was my 2002 Trans Am WS6 and i did not want to drive it in the winter. So from another car board i p/u the Avalon for $900.

As of now it has 219K on it still running strong. It has the famous valve cover leak and power steering leak. Both motor mounts are broke and that is about it. I am afraid to change the transmission fluid :lol:

Well here is my car:

I have to show off!!! If I don't take the pictures tomorrow, I will this weekend. Only thing is my baby has a little rust on the RR quarter panel. :(. Thinking of getting a Camry body kit fitted with some fender flares when I fix it. But anyways, pics of mine coming soon.

I wasn't lying about the pics! Here they are.

Let's start out with the unexciting stuff.





My Autopage RS-1000 remote for the alarm



From the back, with doors open you can see the red step lights



The rear lights. My tail lights have that night shade tinting on them.



My true-dual exhaust system!!! Two Magnaflow race mufflers with a Magnaflow H catalytic.





My sound system baby!!!

2x JL W3V3 Subwoofers (500W RMS each)



The power for those monsters, Rockford Fosgate 1000BD mono amp



I also have Diamond audio 5.25 components for the front, 5.25 coaxials for the rear. Here is the Rockford Fosgate T-400 4 Channel for those.



The capacitor



My engine bay with the air intake.



My red gauges! Just done today! Woot.



I have to blind people...6000k HIDs



Another shot of those HIDs getting blinded




EDIT: Almost forgot the head unit. JVC KW-AVX820. Touchscreen heaven.

My baby is a 98 Avalon XL. The dual exhaust with the intake does make a difference...it can actually peel out a little now. When I had just the dual exhaust, I got it to 139, and coulda gone a little more but I was running out of space. With the air intake, I might be able to do 145-150.

I wish I could find the strut bar and air intake this guy has. He actually has a full cold air intake; not just a short ram. I suspect the strut bar might be for the Solara, but I am probably wrong.

Woops...completely left out the link in the last post for the pictures of the car I was talking about.

http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3227028

I ordered some similar rotors that the guy has (I didn't get cross-drilled, that severely weakens the rotor and Avalons are heavy), some new brake pads, and I might be painting my calipers as well. I should get them this Wednesday. I'll get some pictures to show you guys. I don't know if I'll document the process...I'm not that great at explaining things over the net. If anyone has any info on the strut bar/AEM cold air intake, let me know. I am really interested.

EDIT: I am surprised no one noticed the license plates covers, or whatever they are, saying Honda on them...yes, I bought my Toyota at a Honda dealer. My family usually buys Honda (we've bought like 8 new ones from this place), so they gave me a good deal on this car.

nvm thats not me i just realized the link lol. I don't have a full cold air setup, which i wish i did and i'm going to rig something one way or another eventually. I'm going to wrap my intake with some heat wrap or something because it's getting too hot and is just blowing in hot air.

Yeah, I'm afraid my intake is just blowing hot air as well. Better than stock, but it can be improved.

I'm planning on lowering my car sometime this year or early next year. Just trying to get all the right parts. I'm doing the full coilovers, bushings, sway bars, tie rods, etc.

Where did you get your strut bar? I've only been able to find that cheap ebay bar, but yours looks a lot sturdier/stiffer. And just let me know about your gauges and I can help. I am going to be helping Avalon95 with his soon.
