^^unless they don't have many australian websites on google...austrlian information could be better. i could only find about 10 pages on the toyota celica sx..and the couple of pages i found specifications on didnt mention redline..thats ridiculous.
anyway, i went to toyotas official australian site (www.toyota.com.au
) and even they didn't list specs (wtf
but what i did find is that while both the sx and the zr celicas come with vvtl-i, the sx is the base model while the zr is the top. this could be the reason for your lower redline..does the zr come with an 7800 rpm redline? might help to find that out. in any case you drive an '01 celica so the redline should not have been lowered yet as the '02 models have.
