(* Toyota Celica Power Upgrade?
For those of you keeping tabs on the Altezza
, you may know that a model has just begun
production in Japan called the RS200 Altezza
. This car, though unlikely to be brought to
the US, has an engine that sounds like an excellent fit to upgrade the power of the current
model Celica. The engine, co-developed with Yamaha (yes, exactly like the 2zz-ge), is the
latest generation 3S-GE 2.0L engine with dual VVT-i pumping out 215HP.
As the new Celica
was designed to combat the popularity of the Integra head on... cross your fingers that Toyota
will drop this engine into the seventh generation Celica. This is not an engine swap candidate
however as the engine is mounted lengthwise in the RS300.
Unfortunately, Toyota has historically proven to be slow in playing the horsepower game.
This may mean that more power for the Celica isnt likely until as late as the next incarnation
of the Celica (8th generation-~2006). The All-Trac/GT-4 was introduced 2 years into the model
year, as well as convertible models, to renew interest, so it is very remotely possible that Toyota
could introduce it in the 2003 model year facelift but highly doubtful. Toyota is focusing their
time and money towards Scion at the moment, and Celica sales have never been the focus of
Anyways just wanting to share this important info with you guys!!!!!
