Exactly, and as for 'custom' he means one built just for YOUR car...that way it is actually meant for YOUR car...that way it can be tweaked.

you have a celica sx (australian for gts).

xs engineering makes a Turbo that puts out great power gains, but some people have complained of problems.

however, it won't have as much problems as a custom Turbo--they have more problems than i could count and i wouldnt recommened one at all.

if you want a Turbo, go with the xs Turbo, and now theres a strafford Turbo that's supposed to be excellent--you should check into it.

also, blitz is coming with a supercharger. it hasnt even officially hit the states yet, so i don't know how far off australia will be.

Yeah, I've heard good things about the Stafford Turbo.

there are no good Turbochargers out there for celicas. you can take the risk and try xs. be patient and wait for other Turbos to come out.

Just put together a custom Turbo kit. If you aren't too educated about Turbo sizing, just look at what size XS uses and go from there. There's already Turbo kits out for the Celica (from what I read) so you could just get a manifold from one of those companies, you wouldn't even need to get a custom manifold made. I really am surprised that I dont hear more about custom Celica kits especially since you guys have the Power FC. You don't even need a piggy back for fuel management, just get the PFC and have it tuned. The only real trouble would be getting the custom piping.

Somebody needs to do it!

My lugnuts require more torque than my Honda produces.
