Since when does a turbo have to look good!? People who install turbo's generally do that for performance...not for looks.. ;)

Alright let me tell what this motor is. It the motor off the Turbo MR2. He's pushing 14 psi and doesn't know what the dyno is or the time slips. It only been in the car for week he said. He also told me is has a centerforce double puck clutch with the TRD pressure plate.
I also told him about this board so hopefully he will join us.

Is this news? I've heard that some one else already did the 3s-GTE swap like last year. 3S-GTEs were also found in Celica All-Tracs and GT-4s and the IS200 as well as the MR-2s.

Still he gets props cause as we all know the 3S-GTE is arguably the best 4 cylinder ever made and it has mad potential.

Well I dont know much about him. I just met him at the Tuner Bash show. I've told him about the NC.org and he never heard of it before. So I did tell him about it and told him he will get alot of props if he does come on this board. But yeah it really a nice setup, it just made me drool looking at it. hehe!!

I talked to the guy also and he said the motor came off an mr2 and also heard him mumble something about 350 to the wheels. The car has an authentic veilside kit which I will post more of later.

I wonder what he has done to the suspension to make up for the extra 100+ pounds in the front og the car?

His Celi looks like it'll be a drag racing bad-ass. I wonder how much more nose-heavy his Celi is now, though? One thing to consider is that the heavier 3sgte engine, with its iron block, might hurt his handling and braking characteristics a bit, since his front/rear weight distribution will be off. Nevertheless, VERY impressive setup.
