Ok, i am so pissed because a friend of mine keep saying that
no way a lightly mod celica (intake, exhaust) can ever reach 14's
in 1/4 mile, and hes been arguing with me forever, i am just too tired of it, can you guys help me educate him??
this is what he wants to say...flame on


"i heard my friend said light mod (exhaust and intake) can make Celica GTS jump into high 14 sec and I do not Believe it. First of all, Exhuast and intake no matter how expensive, how efficient they are, they cannot give you a that much jump. Second, all the ppl (either japanese ppl or here, whether mags or toyota itself) who tested a stock 2001 celica GTs has not even reached 15.2 sec, even japanese professional racers has not done it with a race tires. Take a Look at Best Motoring, they don't do mistakes."

A stock Celica GT-S 6 speed is good for a low 15sec quarter mile any day of the year, with a 14.9 with great conditions and driver. And I've seen a Japanese Celica drag race (Best Motoring?) video, and those guys <b>cannot</b> drive to save their life.

The only mod I had to do to my GT-S to reach the 14s (14.937 @ 93.54) was to remove the seats and spare tire. If the track I went to was grippier and I could launch better, I could have hit a high 14.7xx in my otherwise stock GT-S.

My friend ran a 14.6 in his GTS with I/E. He could drive that car very well though.

Your friends a damn fool. Ask him this... WHAT THE HELL DOES HE EVEN KNOW ABOUT THE CELICA? NOTHING. Just another non believer. Where do you live? Maybe alocal GTS'er on this board can shut him up!
haha, sorry if hes such an idiot, hes a nice guy but just very stubborn and likes to argue with me. Like last time he's arguing with me about how my other friend's 2000 prelude will pull on me.
and we bet 50 push up on it and he lost :D . Too bad i never really made him do those push up. But he just made all kind of excuses like we didn't line up right...blah blah.
I live in North NJ btw, yeah maybe next time one of you GTS guy
can show him the 14's at the track.;)
