Hi all! I'm new to this forum; my girlfriend has an 06 Slolara SE 4 cyl. She loves the fact that I am a mechanic and enjoy hooking-up cars & trucks, and has asked me to spice hers up a bit, but I'm a little stumped when it comes to what to do to her car (my searches for performance parts have come up nil so far).
I want to do three subtle mods to her car: a stainless cat back exhaust, a cold air intake, and install fatter tires on the stock aluminum rims (she has the 215/60-16s now). Has anyone done any of these mods to the 4 banger? Where did you find the parts? I can and do make nice custom exhausts where I work, but I always like to install a kit whenever possible. The same goes for the intake; I see a few nice kits for the V6, but nothing for the 4, and though I'm sure I could design something, thats really something I'd rather leave to the pros. The tire size I wanted to go up to is 235/55-16; have any of you gone bigger with the stock rims? Will these rub without spacers?
Thanks for reading this!

Why not do it yourself? If you can bend exhaust your golden. Much cheaper then buying an exhaust system from any retailer. Same goes for the CAI. Bent the tubing, weld in the mount for the MAF meter, throw on a cheap filter and you've saved yourself a ton of cash.
