Default XRS upgrades help.

At the expense of sounding retarded here we go.

I have an 09 corolla xrs manual 5 speed with 44000 miles. This is my first car of this type. I'm more of a truck and motorcycle guy. I am wanting to upgrade the engine such as new turbo, exhaust, air intake the whole 9 yards. Since this is my first build of this type I really do not know where to start. I don't have a lot of money to put into this build at one time so it's going to be a work in progress.

what I want to know is where is the best place to start, I have seen a lot of different exhaust pipes out there what one would be the best?

Most people who begin any build on a budget like yourself typically start with the basics, cold air intake, exhaust, etc. I'm not familiar with what is available for your particular vehicle but those things are common among all makes and models.

Something to think about before you begin is what your end goal for the car will be, that will point you in the right direction to start.

I love the way turbos and air valves sound especially on the shift. Exhaust like this.

Can never go wrong with an upgraded exhaust on a turbo car
