1 to 2 15 mph max 35
2 to 3 25 mph max 57
3 to 4 40 mph max 78
4 to 5 45 mph max 106

generaly shift as early as you can i never go above 3-4 grand in my gts unless im feelin frisky

All my other cars hasn't been as rev-happy as the celica is, so I've gotten used to changing gears at about 2500-3000 rpm. Just had to check with the rest of you how you drive, 'cause my GT doesn't really feel to confident with anything less than 3000 (preferably 3500) when changing gears. Just thought I might be "punishing" the car driving it like this smile

VVT-I isn't something that kicks in at a defined RPM.

What is VVT-I

Anyway, 2500 if the engine is cold.
4000 if the engine is warm.
6700 when racing.
