The power to weight is awesome. I have 429HP right now. I have installed aanew maf sensor just have to go dyno again and should be at around 420whp. Then next upgrade is rods then be at 500 or more whp
lol i still really new to all of it I am learning as i go and just search around here a whole lot. Also MWR and just forums in general and really thinking of what my goals are. Then just jumping in and trying to get my hands dirty. I am not that knowledgeable haha just learn as I go.
^ i have everything i need for the build other then rods i would like to upgrade to the E153 in the near future but i am not totally sure if i really want that yet haha. I am more then happy at 11psi daily which is faster then most cars on the street. I just recently kicked it up to 17 and it is a rush! I do love it when a car that generally would smoke you pulls up on the freeway and you can just leave them with jaws dropping but i have always been in competition with my brother(prelude h22) and a good friend(talon tsi) and just always trying to be be the fastest haha and going to to porkys in the twin cities i guess its mostly just to have it and know i can keep up or beat most cars on the street, if i cant do it going straight, i DAMN wekk better be able to through the twisties. But i would like to change the rods out to have the comfort of it not breaking as well as being able to really turn it up if want. My main goal right now is just to hit 400whp which will be no problem, just have to go dyno again. But i couldn't agree with you more, I LOVE THE TURBO LIFE!! and i feel this is how the celica should have came from the factory.
uniqgts- the prelude just has bolt-ons and hondata p28 so not much comparison he totaled his 240sx so just starting on this car now, and the talon tsi has 350whp with the big mitsu turbo i dont remember which it is. Also have a friend with stage2 s4 which is probably only one close to me when i at 11psi. So as of right now i am the fastest haha and i want it to become nowhere near of a challenge with all of them. Also i had to kind of shut my dad up as he talked big about his 03 mach1 stang and i eat him up like standing still now I would like to try to go in chi town but its still up for grabs because the wife wants to go on an alaskan cruise for 7 days, plus i am in WA so its a lie a 1500mi. drive and i want coils and some wider wheels, these 8in wide spin to much..
eden- youll be one of us soon enough
Eden- get money from taxes or do a personal loan or just save haha. turbokit sells for 3k from tk.com. Then it 700 for Gt28rs upgrade. Then choose your ecu or piggyback. Then a cluth which each has own preference. Also a 3" exhaust, lsd, boost gauge, wideband o2 gauge, and low comp pistons if want over 300whp and that it. I would say for that like a 6k or so loan unless someone else installs? But all depends on what all you want.
