The fact that the corolla 2ZZ engine has a little better tuning is not gonna compensate for the extra pounds that the corolla has... given equal drivers, and equal mods ---> the celica should take the rolla.
actually. It is better tuned for low end. It has 170 HP, 10 less than the GTS but distributes more power throughout.Originally posted by My Sixth Gear
the corolla engine isn't better tuned than the GTS GTS should win hands down
No. The car is slightly heavier lacking 10 HP where it counts on the 2ZZ, I am just saying it would be close with the edge to the GTS. An XRS Corolla will most likely be capable of a 15.1-15.0
And a stock Celica GTS is no better than 15.1-15.0 either, so they must be equal.NoRulzAt140 Mph said:No. The car is slightly heavier lacking 10 HP where it counts on the 2ZZ, I am just saying it would be close with the edge to the GTS. An XRS Corolla will most likely be capable of a 15.1-15.0
Only if you race while shifting before lift The tune one the the rolla gives it a LITTLE bit more bottom end for daily driving. I've never raced my car and not stayed in lift the whole time........where I should be to get any power out of it.
Well I was using the best possible time for an XRS. The GTS can squeeze 2-3 more tenths out.Originally posted by 03SilverGTS

Good points man.NoRulzAt140 Mph said:Well I was using the best possible time for an XRS. The GTS can squeeze 2-3 more tenths out.
The point is, these lil BS are getting faster than the 5 year old celica. SRT-4'S, WRX'S, etc. They are affordable beasts. the 2.5 Legacy, damn sleeper. The up and coming 4g eclipse is supposedly going to be a beast.
Cars are getting progressively faster and cheaper each year, making the purchase of an 04 GTS unjustifiable.
GTS is more money for more of the same really.Originally posted by n/xgts
the rollas lift engages at around 6400(at least the one i drove) and goes to 8200. so even for the best of drivers it is much harder to keep in lift. i would say that a gts has the edge over the rolla. anyone in the houston area can come down to Mike Calvert Toyota and drive the one we got...just ask for Mike Gonzales and i well let you take it for a spin. it looks pretty good but for a sticker price of just over 20k i would not buy it.
