I have a 2004 toyota corolla s with a dc-sports header, cold air intake, full exhaust with a pro-max exhaust systems muffler. I got alot of my stuff from e-bay and slickcar.com for really low prices but I cannot find what I am looking for. Right now I am looking for a someone to talk to about turbocharging my 2004 corolla s because I will be the only one in my city with a turbocharged toyota corolla s. Also where would I buy one from because I cannot find anywhere to buy one.
#351 of 374 Power Lock Kit and power window kit For Toyota Corolla 2007

I'd like to convert my Corolla 2007 to power lock doors and power windows. I know it's possible because they are optional. Where I can buy these kits, except from Toyota dealers.
#352 of 374 Cool Things to Do to your Rolla's jose473!

Cool Things to Do to your Rolla's jose473! I am not an expert when it is about modying cars or an expert on the 2004 Corolla, even though I drove it to death litterally. I actually get my friend to do or a professional company. Honestly speaking I have to think twice to remember how to change a spark plug. But honestly, this is comming from experience. The dc-sports header, and the cold air intake and full exhaust is awsome. But if you want something good, and proven and reliable.
This is what I can remember what was done to my 2000 Corolla.
1. Grab a wrc Corolla Racing Engine, remove the turbo limitator (should give you 300 bhp.)
2. Get the sequential transmission
3. Get 16" Titanium (whatever design rims) make sure they are cut not molded.
4. pro-max exhaust systems muffler
5. Get a stabilzer for the engine compartment.
6. Strengthen the frame.
7. Rip out all uneccessary weight.
8. Add a 5-point harnest for all seats.
9. Change all seats to bucket seats.
10. If you have power windows remove them, replace them with the hand crank.
11. Remove the plastic moldings from the side of the doors and replace with carbon fiber, and install a titanium roll cage.
12. Add a Nos tank in the trunk.
13. Install a police radar detector, that looks like an IPOD.
14. Aftermarket transparent carbon hood and solid carbon colored trunk.
15. Fiberglass the rest of the panels and the doors.
I did this to my past 2000 Corolla VE, and it beat my friends 98 Mustang Cobra in a drag. It could just be that the word Mustang sounds almost like (Must Die) in Chinese (Catonese). So Mustang Cobra would be like "Must Die Cobra" sounds like a good GI Joe Slogan! Lol!
#353 of 374 add an aftermarket Xenon lighting system?
Jun 19, 2008 (5:16 pm)
Has anyone added an aftermarket Xenon (HID) lighting system to their Corolla? If so, could you mention the brand, quality and your impressions please. The installation is simple but the quality of the kits/components are in question!
Note: I normally would not think about adding after market anything to a new car, but I am considering the Xenons if I could find a good quality setup.....oem, even if offered, would be cost prohibitive.
This is not for looks, but for the better vision Xenons afford on dark back mountain roads. I would be looking for as close to oem color as possible (5000k?)
I had oem Xenons on a since traded 04 Audi A4 and they were great. However I hear that in the after market arena quality is hit or miss and the warranty would probably (definately) take a hit. The stand alone bulbs from Sylvania and the like just do not get it IMHO. A friend put a set in his 2006 Audi A6 and they look great (oem great) but I do not think the company is around any more.

#355 of 374 2009 corolla new wheels/tires
Jul 11, 2008 (10:55 am)
I bought a 2009 corolla LE on 7-8-08 it came with 15"steel wheels and firestone affinty tires P/195/65.
I traded the tires a discount tires and bought the Voxx monza 670-5001 16" aluminium alloy wheel.The tires I traded for are the Kumo Soulus Hp4 716 P205/60.
I think this is a nice balance on the corolla.Gives it a bigger foot print.Takes the not so good roads better than the stock wheels and tires.Ride smooth and quite.
Have a look here:

Picked up my 2009 Corolla XLE last week, got the windows tinted just today. Looks sweet! Got 25% tint on the sides and rear, only $130.00 with lifetime guarantee. Now it's off to the shop to protect the supposedly cheap paint with the 8 mil. plastic and invisible 3M Clear Bra on the bumper, hood and quarters.
