What is the web address for TRD anyway?
This may strike some as funny, but I am thinking about doing some modifications to my Echo.

I don't think they got anything for your echo.
#16 of 51 re Camry '98 V6 modifications...
Aug 06, 2001 (7:19 pm)
We've just bought one, really wanting a Maxima but wanting side air bags and better crash results for our daughter. So we're a family pulled in a couple of directions.
We've decided on the Camry, but does anyone have any thoughts re which of the TRD choices are most functional--our main desires are more hp, better mileage, and better handling (less brake dive, esp). How loud-low-teenage-guyish is that muffler? They advertise that one of its features is a 'low sound'... And I see that both 16 and 17" tires can fit on it--we've got the '98 premium wheels but they're only 15". Would 16 cause a discernible improvement? And would any of the filters improve mileage? Anything else I'm missing?
Oh, one last thing--should we go only w/TRD or are other brands ok? I somehow think I could find things cheaper, but which brands can be trusted?
TIA-and learning all the time
#17 of 51 bigger wheels don't do much

They only look cooler and require lower profile tires. The best benefit is wider contact patch or a wider wheel.
Lower profile tires typically show less flex under high speed turns, but that's about it.
Walk up to any vehicle and push it back and forth across it's width. (IE. Push the driver side rear fender towards to the passenger side rear fender.) This will make the vehicle shake, and most of it will be the tire sidewall, some may be a little suspension flex.
So keep the nice looking 15" premium wheels, and just put money into tires.
#18 of 51 Supercharger for Solara
Sep 01, 2001 (3:53 am)
Anyone actually running the TRD Supercharger for a 2000 Solara v6? Pros/cons and how does it effect the warranty of the vehicle?
Sep 12, 2001 (12:00 am)
If your still checking. The TRD supercharger will not void your warranty if the install is performed by a Toyota Dealer. If dealer installed, the supercharger gets absorbed into your vehicle warranty.
In fact, even if you self install there is a 12 month unlimited mile warranty on the parts.
Researching for my Tacoma, in case you were wondering. I would still like to hear from folks thinking about the supercharger and their experiences as well.
