Turbos for GTS

Does anyone have any information on turbos for a GTS? I'm interested in making my celica really fast, really quick so any help would be great.

Ok so if I ordered something like that, where would you take it to have it installed? I can't see every mechanic knowing how to put that baby in.

For you Caerie, there has to be a shop in Chicago that does turbos. Installing isn't the hard part. Tuning is the hard part since there is the apex-i power fc involved. I heard that a representative from XS engineering will fly to you and do the tuning himself. I think that's only with the first few kit batches... Call XS-Engineering to find out more information... Their phone number can be found at http://www.xs-engineering.com/

that would be tight if there were a lot of turbo gts around...then more companies will see that the celica's are getting turbo'd by only a few companies and they'll want to rake in the money too, so then more turbo kits will eventually come out...well i hope so anyway..
i think the xs one is tight... but i want a custom turbo grin

I believe its 320 FWHP eek

I've been talking to them about having it done, VERY small shop and not much staff.

Would take probably 2 months frown

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

EIP not only does your turbo, but also does internal engine work to produce this "320HP"

I would like to know this too. I know there'll be a increase, but would it be wise to get it??

Chicago area, Eh? Try Driver's Image, they're one of the better shops in the area.

They have a web site, it's at:

If they can't do the install, they'll put you in touch with someone who can.
