Ok so I'm new to Celicas. I have a lot of DSM experience and some BMW, and I was wondering why everyone seems to be having a hard time finding a fast GT. To me, it seems the obvious would be bore it, stroke it, raise the compression ratio, and then if you needed to add nitrous. So does anyone make a stroker kit? What about stronger rods? Higher compression ratio pistons? How interchangable are the 1ZZ and 2ZZ engines? From what I've read they're the same size, how hard could it be? o_O So anyway, I'm probably getting a 2003 Celica GT (can't afford a GTS) and I want fast, 13.5 E/T fast. Oh, I've also been reading this forum for about 2 hours, so I have been searching. Let's hear the opinions.

So why can't it take nitrous to 13's? I'm not a big fan of nitrous but N/A > Turbo conversions are _always_ expensive. Does no one make a stroker kit? Bigger rods? Higher compression ratio pistons? I personally would rather go Supercharger than Turbocharger. So who makes what? Got links?

There isnt much of an aftermarket for the Celicas.

Nitrous and Turbokits are your only Tickets. Nitrous wont get you very far, no stroker kits unless you buy a GTS 2ZZGE and mate it to your 1ZZFE (which is called a 3ZZGE), cams are in the process but not out yet, no ITB's as of yet, Higher comp pistons would require custom pistons and rods (weisco and pauter), and there is a Supercharger but you wont be seeing incredible output's. I think high to mid 13's at the most without having to rebuild the engine and tranny.

13's is my goal. I read about a turbo kit from Stafford Fabrication that at 10 PSI could put a GT at 220-230 HP. On such a light vehicle that'd be good. After reading though I didn't find any URLs or prices, so I need those o.o
