for as major of an engine mod as that is, and as expensive as i'm sure it is... they sure don't have a lot of information about it on their website.
So far stafford fabrications is still the company that's going to get my business... unless i learn a lot more about the c2 kit... and it's significant;y cheaper than the SF kit...

Hi, i'm Bing and I usually post on Newcelica.org.

Since you're looking for information on the C2 kit, I can provide you with some.

I have the stage 2 kit installed and i'm really happy with it. I've been driving with this setup for about 6 months now.
I had c2gas his old setup copied, which he used for almost a year already.
After more research and development, c2gas changed the diameter on the piping to create even more power in the higher rpm's.

c2gas had his car dyno'd just recently and he pushed 260whp on 13PSI.
He needs to scan the dyno still, to show you guys some results. 260whp is stage 2.

I'm going to dyno my car soon as well, as soon if I get my new Air Filter for even more power. I have an electronical boostcontroller, so I'll make a dyno of 6PSI(stage 1) as well.

If you need any more info, please ask specific questions.

P.S. I raced a BMW M3 a couple of days ago. It was a tie. I expect to be able to beat a M3 once I get my new Air Filter.
That's about 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds. Never dragraced before, so I don't know 1/4mile time X(

isn't 13 PSI a little risky on a celica?

Stage 2 contains other internals.

-ACT XT clutch which can hold up till 275 torque.
-8.8:1 wiseco pistons
-Stronger Crower rods.

Like I said, c2gas almost drove a year with 13~14PSI.

C2Power doesn't buy the internals, I bought them myself. Goal is to sell stage 1 kits mainly, since it's just a simple bolt on.

the SF kit uses stock ECU. this way it works with ANY year celica.

we added the power fc like XS uses and we put down 280 whp and 204 wtq with only a lil tuning on the pfc wink stock clutch, stock internals. with the alcohol injection and a few other goodies it will put down some great power. smile

SF kits are the only ones I like right now.

gts. keep in mind that was not the base kit. it was the base kit + power fc and tuning. the base kit is great for noobs. and can be expanded depending on what you wanna do. Thats why I like it so much.

Bro make sure you consult SF on the type and trim Turbo you're getting. He has the most knowledge as to what will work best with the 1zz/2zz for boost.

i'm thinking i might have to buy the SF kit one piece at a time! I don't really want to do it that way... but that's the nature of the beast when you only make $600/ month

I am, however, applying for a new job today that will pay me almost $2k per month. I'm fairly certain that i''ll get it, because I have all of the qualifications that the company is asking for, and more that they didn't ask for, but appreciate in their line of work. Also, I have on my side, the fact that not too many people in my town have the qualifications... <crosses fingers> so, i might be able to afford to buy it all at once.

Why not just buy the SF manifold, and then get the rest of the parts on your own. The manifold is the only really tough thing to do, but charge piping and a downpipe can be fabbed by almost any Performance shop. Since you already have a Turbo (what'd you get btw) just buy the SF manifold and do your own thing from there. If you can do it yourself, you'll save a lot of money when it's all said and done.

haha doesnt mean the cops out here wont ticket you for it. rofl they ticket people for TRD exhaust. wtf they also ticket for your headlight sbeing too close to the ground. my teamates head lights sit 1/4" lower then mine and he got a ticket for headlights too low to the ground. how retarded is that. lol

CA is not a mod friendly state even though everyone and their grandmother mods something on their car. lol

I'm getting a Garret t-3. The reason i don't really want to do my own thing, is that there aren't any good Performance shops in my town that I will take my car to. It would be MUCH easier for me to buy a pre-fabbed kit, and then install it myself.

You think getting a shop to start from scratch on piping is cheap? If this was the case, more people would put together Turbo kits.

How much is custom piping (since you obviously must know). More people don't do custom Turbo kits because they either don't have the know-how or they have enough money to just drop $4000 at one time. Custom kits are cheaper. I gaurantee mine comes out less than $3000. How much is SF, $3500?...plus installation.
