First I gotta give thanks to Keyshawn who made it possible and for his contributions!

Alrite, I spoke to XS about their kit and availablity. They are offering the first batch to the first 5 lucky people who can go get it installed at their shop. Basically here's what you get:

Walbro Fuel Pump, forced induction 255lr/hr ($125)
Denso 525 CC Injectors ($400)
K/N Filter ($100)
Titanium Color Turbo & Intercooler Piping ($600)
Tubular exhaust manifold with High-temp ceramic coating ($500)
XS Power IC Skyline GT-R intercooler core ($1200)
IHI Ball Bearing turbocharger ($1700)
Apexi Twin chamber BOV ($200)
Apexi Power FC (commander is optional) ($1200)
Earl's turbocharger plumbing ($200)
All silicone hoses, transistions, and couplings ($200)

------------------------
$4995 ($6425 if parts are brought seperately in the street)

Installation, and fine tuning (3+ dyno runs), etc.
------------------------
$500

We need you guys to be the first to get the kit, so XS can better fine tune the production kit ready in approximately 3-4 months. What you are getting is a high quality pre-production kit, and XS's expertise to fine tune it. I wish I live closer to Cali, or I'll be the next. They refuse to sell me to me as a kit because of the tuning involved. So guys, this is a great deal and if you wait, it will be at least 3-4 months before the initial release. I was told that there's already 20+ on the waiting list.

If you're interested, please call Reggie at (714) 698-8300, and you can tell him that John Huang told you about this so you can get into this deal.

Rumor Control

IMMEDIATELY upon reading the above post, I called down to XS and spoke to Reggie. These first 5 or so cars he's looking to do are in-house installs...to make sure all the pipes are bent correctly, tuning is done correctly, etc...before it gets shipped out to people across the country...in other words...XS is doing Quality Assurance on the product, which is great to hear! The way I read the above post was that they'd only do inhouse...so..just clearing things up :)

Yes, thanks for clearing it up. If you re-read my post, I did say you have to install it at their shop because they needed to fine tune the kits ready for production.

Thanks again for the props, nyoneway. Great work, guys! Like I always say, it's good to get info straight from the source. XS Engineering, along with Blitz, D. Draper, and a few other select companies have invested a lot of time, effort, and money in the Celica community when most other companies ignored us. As always, big ups to all those guys.

Now the question is: Who's joining me?:thumbup:

29k?? Congrats Jay, don't pass the offer up! Mod the Z06 =)
Yea $29K too good to pass up! I'm still out a fist full of cash if you look at all my mods. The F/I was not a kit so that set me back a pretty penny. I'm gonna mod the Vette, just the motor with F/I and new rubber.

Sounds awesome! Enjoy your Z06! It's gonna be even more of a badass when you're done modding it. Does that mean that you are no longer dynoing your Celi? As far as still being part of the club, hehe, with 525 HP, you can be a part of whatever club you want. Have fun, man!

And save 2-3k and come race with me at Lime Rock and attend Skip Barber racing school. They will make you a faster driver instead just having a faster car. Otherwise you are going to run into a this dumbass Celica one day that will suprise the hell out of you. It's all about the skillz....

do u think the production kit will be less then the preproduction, after install and tuning of course? cause that seems like a break on the install and tuning from the above quote?

Just do a compression test. It's easy and inexpensive to do one. Call them and inquire, there are still room for more.

No the production kit won't cost any less. They are pretty firm about their prices, and right now its a bargain. If you add up all just the cost of the individual parts itself you can buy on the net, the kit is still $1000 cheaper. Remember all their 2+ years of R&D into this kit, you get more than what you paid for.

Anyone who went custom (ie. Jersey Jay, Mike, EIP etc) can tell you that to do it right, you going to spend almost 10k and countless hours tuning and getting it right.

Right now this is by far the most extensively researched and complete kit on the market. It does'nt get any better than this. Blitz maybe able to slightly top it in the reliabilty department, but they will not come near XS on power delivery. Blitz will sell for $6000, not installed.

XS called me to about being one of the 5..then after i called them back they realized that im in hawaii. Sometimes living in paradise SUCKS!!!! But I am damn sure that i am in on the first run of the kits thou. I have been waiting and waiting since the ALT celica was completed...I have called XS so many times that i am known by just about everyone there. All i have to do now is get my LSD, and a few other parts installed so i can break them in a little before the production starts. I noticed that the start up time was 3-4 months...i was told 3 weeks at the latest for the kits to start being delivered to those that already pre-ordered.

I am all over this kit like a fat kid on a cupcake..2/1 YEARS i have been waiting and now it is weeks away.

IMPORTANT INFO: If you order this kit you have to specify if you are running a Cat or not!!! XS has 2 diff programs for the PowerFC.
