lil update, we decided to let her run and see if it she's ready to get ASAP tuned on the dyno. But now I don't have to hurry too much because it's a hard winter over here and I decided to get again a AWD and have chosen a black Audi RS4, so I have still some more Cargo for my sons bike. I must say, wow this 380ps stock is really a blast for a DD, but anyway I'll do a chip, exhaust system and intake for some better mpg and even more power :wiggle:
here a vid of the running Rotrex, it's very loud with the 3" exhaust system and 3" PPE collector, also the induction noise of the charger is still too loud

hey i have a question for ya, do you think with the Rotrex, it would be possible to use an extended drive shaft on it, its cause im thinking of fitting one to my 03 corolla, but i have nowhere near the space that a celica has near the alternator, so i have been toying with the idea of a transfer shaft to over near the g/box because there is a crap tonne of room over there on corolla's ( http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/3769/super4q.jpg ) red circle is one place to have pulley sitting, or another spot would be above the alternator
and i apologize for asking questions about corolla mods in a Celica forum, but every corolla forum i type on say just turbo it! but i don't like turbos!
^^ I suggest building a dummy with the C30 measurements and see how and where a Rotrex could fit in. But honestly I suggest you go with the mp62 Greddy and an intake manifold adapter setup, if you are ready for hassle and all other things it takes like another DD car go for it
^^ as far I've got an RS4 as my dd since half a year I didn't feel to hurry.. opposite occured, I felt like kicking the project, coz the RS4 is fvcking awesome and unbelievable quick, it's a torque monster. I've owned so many bigger boys league guys .. also just with some little modds I'd bring it to 4s from 0-100mph and very easy very fast to over 300km/h... any way I've decided to finish this project and will bring the Celica tomorrow to the tuner... next week legality tests will be accomplished which will cost me an arm and leg, but I'll be able to drive the build around with out to fear police officers.. will do pics and vids on the dyno...
just to depress your expectations it will be detuned to be under 270ps for some reasons... but don't worry on that, coz this is just stage 1 for the street. For the track another tune will come with some other goodies
