    First time posting here, thought I should share my set up. The first thing that was done to it was swap the exhaust with a GT and add an H-pipe. It's the best daily I've had, definitely beats my corolla. I plan on doing headers and TB soon, what would you guys recommend? Please share any ideas or just post your set up.

    Which Corolla did you have? I had a 14 before I upgraded to my V6.

    As far as headers, i went with the SpeedDaddy shorties. I got a ported throttle body by Gig's Performance. Just an FYI, neither of these will be huge performance gains. Ported intakes and tune are the way to go.

    Good looking ride Jesse! I had the exact exhaust setup for a while, big improvement over stock. Recently went to a Ford Racing Borla Touring, a little on the loud side with my rear seat delete. Good luck with your mods.

    Nice car! Cool seeing a TY V6. I have a stock GT catback. How do you like the H-pipe with it? Is there any drone?

    When I ran GT with the H-pipe (MRT) I had zero drone. I did have some rasp over 4k rpm though. I don't drive there often so not the biggest deal for me. Expected it to go away with the Borla Touring. Better but not gone at WOT.

    I still have my corolla, it's a 2010 v4. Drive it to work sometimes to put less miles on the mustang. I have the mishimoto h-pipe with the gt exhuast on my car with no drone whatsoever, want different AB's at some point but I'm focused on other mods at the moment. There is rasp like vnz says, but it does crackle and pop which I like. I'll post a video here soon so you guys can hear it. I did just order a GT TB from ebay and bought an adapter from one of the guys here. I'll couple that with a drop-in air filter and see what the results are. How hard would it be to install headers on my own? I'm thinking about using a shop or just doing it with a friend.

    I4 corolla, not V ;)

    For the header install, I consistently heard it was a pain from enough people that I just paid someone else to do it. If you have plenty of extensions for your wrench and beer, should be a good 4-5 hour job with your friend.

    You're just wasting money. Get an engine tune. It will transform the car like you won't believe.
