all of your little bolt-ons are not going to make you go faster. you can only improve your celica. unless you've force induction or a really damn good driver, you're not that much faster than a stock. hum...you may want to look into headers, super afc, etc...

ok bro. you definetely need APEXI POWER FC. that thing will make ur engine rev upto as much as you want and help you obtain about 15whp easily with these mods you got. dc headers should come out soon. you basically cannot make ur celica go mroe than 200whp by these stuffs like Intake, exhaust, headers. weight reduction will help you alittle. you really need a Turbo, so start saving up for it if you really wanna go fast. but a celica is meant to look fast, and not be fast. if you wanted fast, mustang, evo8, wrx would have been a better choice. and a grounding kit will barely give you HP, it will inmprove ur idling though, smoother idling and better pedal to the metal feel.

grounding kit doesnt give you HP (i think), maybe releases some HP by giving the engine less electrical resistance. i have the Tunned Innovations Groundin Kit, i do feel a difference in the low end RPMS when i rev it and the sound from head unit has improved a lot, headlights brighter too.. you should buy it works plus its only $30 shipped. but it sure dont give HP and if it did it would be less than 1 grin

just get a Turbo... your gonna end up paying about 3000 to give you 30 whp if you stay NA... so might as well just buy the Turbo and bolt on 90 hp.

that's the way to go POWER FC, it will get you in high 13's with it alone. well with very good tune.

there is also headers, stroker kit(2000cc), piston from TRD, Flywheel(helps a lot), LSD, clutch(ofcourse), better tires, gear ratio from c-one.

Belive it or not there are lot of parts for celica, they are just too damn expensive.

And also HP number isn't all about how fast it is. Its all about your drive-train.

and how well you drive.

man you really want speed? dawg, get a 1991 honda civic sedan, that is the fastest thing on wheels. All you need is a couple decals and a universal muffler and you're set.

nitrouse will make you faster but it kills the motor if used incorrectly. do some research before you spend any more money
