    for this car, i dont think much going on anymore ( cause i might move after school is done in 2 years, but i might not ship it to CA, afraid of smog test), because most of the big item i have already taking care, maybe repaint if the price is right, maybe do a little bit under the hood, aluminum radiator , intake maybe.

    If you don't have a check engine light, or excessive oil burning, I personally wouldn't worry about the smogs here in Cali

    oh speaking of future plan, i might put celica auto shifter to the list, because mine OEM one is getting sticky, and it will look nicer too. try to replace it with a 05 corolla S shifter but wont work, it is too short lol
