turbo question
I'm looking at a garret t3/t4 Turbo... so basically I'm wondering if any of you have Turbos, if yes what do you have... post some pictures and do you like it so far or is it running shitty? I've heard rumors celicas are tough to get Turbos to spin and run smooth... so help me out

There are some people who have bought tubos for their celica. Do you have GT or GTS? Anyway they make them for both, and they run pretty well form what I hear

the T3/T4 Turbo might be a little big for the celica...unless you re-build with new internals. I had a t3/T4 on my last ride, and its rated to be 250 - 350 hp...basically it spools as fast as a T03 Turbo, but pushes as much as a T04E Turbo...because it has a different impellar housing...its very nice, but may be a bit much, and the best price I got when I bought mine was $976 just for the Turbo!!
