I think a more realistic goal is low 12's. After seeing Luckys time with minimal mods (13.7) I belive that with a Turbo..all boltons, and drag radials you could pull 12.1 ish!!!

turbonetics celica runs 6's in the 1/4 spineyes

but anyway, it's not really a celica underneath...and 1,800+ horses will do that to you.

it's not hard to make a 10 second celica..it's just very expensive. my guesstimate would be about 20k to make it a 10 sec car. engine swap & engine reinforcement, race header & race exhaust, Intake, drag radials on 15" weld racing rims, nitrous.

3s-gte MIGHT do it...with a lot of work. I know that one celica with the 3sgte swap and other goodies is beating vettes, and Turbo rx7's and other cars WAY out of its class.

nah..you can have a street legal 10 sec celica. it's just expensive...well, you'd have to figure out a way to make a race exhaust legal to emissions...might have to grab one of an exotic or something perhaps. it's $$ to say the least.
