Trying to decide if I should get a Turbo Inlet Pipe or a Rear Sway Bar. Mods are APR 93 program, APR R1 DV, APR 2.5" DP and Milltek 2.5" catback. Suspension I have a Weitec 60/60 cup kit. What kind of differences will I experience with either the TIP or RSB?

TIP will be a much less noticeable difference than a RSB in my opinion. You'll have less of a bottle-neck, but body roll improvement with a RSB in unbeatable if you ask me.

Its like apples and oranges. Do you think the car could be improved in the handling department or the power department as far as your opinion goes?

there is always room for improvement. I know what to expect from a TIP and I would be happy with that, mostly the sound I would get from it is what I would enjoy most. I just dont know what to really expect from a RSB.

im gonna go against the norm here and say TIP, but im more of a perf guy then suspension guy. I drive my car on stock suspension and deal with the mad body roll.
(i will eventually do supsension,but i mod my car in stages, right now is the perf stage)
The sound of a TIP is nice, and i noticed a good increase in top end,but nothing as MAJOR as a RSB, still, i say TIP because assuming KO3s, your almost complete with aval bolt ons. Then you can move on

RSB = best mod ever

I'd have to agree. I wouldn't trade mine for anything.
Okay, that's an overstatement, but I still lub mai RSB. http://****************.com/smile/emlove.gif

Most definitely.
The reduction in body roll is just unbeatable. Makes cornering feel sooooo much tighter. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Rear AntiSway Bar would be the most noticible modificaiton; dramatic night and day difference in handling over stock handling. I can personally attest to that

...but is it applicable to everyday driving? I mean its not like we're out racing our cars...

It absolutely is. Whether you like a nice spirited drive down a curvy road or you want a quick response to avoid the 6 year old that chased his ball into the street, a RSB can accomplish both. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
