hmm a few things...
1. do they really need that huge turbo header?
2. all those boost gauges looks really tacky
3. dont like the new color, it looks dumb with the rims
4. i dont like body kits but i think this car needs something,a lip or like a small drag spoiler, i duno somthing!

its cool other then that, lots of shiny parts as chiggy said.

I bet that thing moves. What is it again 2.4l or 2.2l I dont remember, but I bet the numbers are close to what a turbo GTS is putting out.

The steering feel of the TC is alot different than the Celica. It is weighted pretty good but doesn't give as much feedback and it responds less directly to input. Those extra 500lbs are definitly noticeable.

I think the TC is more like a 4cyl Accord Coupe than other small sporty cars. Rides nice, very quiet, smooth revving engine, solidly built. A good cruiser but I can't see driving one with the same entusiasm one would when flinging around Celica. Not that you couldn't, it just doesn't seem as inspiring to make you want to. Straight line with the Turbo must be nice though.

Just my $.02
