Well... It will be a grip of money, but get the TRIAL header for better flow of the NOS. The Apexi S-AFC might help you in keeping things tuned and running well.

Light weight/15" rims, drag radials, clutch, flywheel, LSD, high-flow cat, removed or "race" reasonator, TRD KAZUMA exhaust, apex-i S-AFC or power fc & dyno tuning, lightweight seats, carbon fiber Hood(weight reduction), Trial or TRD Header, Trial stroker kit, port polish(if you have the $$$), remove your air conditioner and/or power steering, and get anything you can replaced with something that weighs less... Don't forget a proper suspension setup to transfer weight... also since you are spending all this money to make your car faster... spend some money on making your car able to stop just as fast! did i miss anything? Oh yeah, go on a diet.

depends on how much shot of nitros you want? if it's 50hp or less, it's safe with just your stock engine..if you go any higher, then yeah, go ahead and do all what steven wrote..goodluck!

Celicas can't take a dry shot. You need to go with a wet nitrous system since we have no fuel return line. I wouldn't bother with the S-AFC, the ECU will re-adjust and override any changes you make within a few hours.

Get a 35 or 50 wet nitrous system and you'll have more balls for the occasional drag races..

I thought the Apexi-FC was a full ECU replacement...?

Go to www.zex.com and buy the dry to wet converter. It is a whole new controller. Also what the guys above have said is true.. If you do not go above 50 or even 75 (limited use only) then you need to do nothing to the motor. Intake and exhaust are perfect... I will say this one more time, you have to have a wet kit only...
