it's about $1500 msrp.

if you use group buy or fine a sale (unlikely) you can get it cheaper than that.

it adds about 10 whp top-end (very good)

but it adds about 18 lb-foot of torque low-end (extremely good).

that wont work, and heres an explanation why,

"For everyone who's always insisting on trying to lower the VVTL crossover point- here are the results of a full round of tuning on the small cam only, then the large one. The torque curves cross at about 6300 RPM, making that the theoretically ideal point. Because of the Performance of the VVT actuator it works best to change over a bit earlier, but certainly not lower than 6000 RPM like the 2000 Toyota Celica ECU."

http://monkeywrenchracing.com/mwr_celica_gts.html

best advantage of the pfc is to rev higher in lift, and make landing in lift super easy, our pfc's are set to 8600 rpms, and landing the 1-2 shift takes no effort what so ever.

a lot of "chips" are just 2.5 resistors which are connected
to the IAT sensor which just tells the car that its 65 degrees out which changes the air to fuel mix but this only adds like 4bhp... but if its colder then 65 degrees then you will lose hp... its just a cheap ricer mod not worth the 35 cents for the resistor
