Yeah best friend got it after his Fiance totaled his 2k Civic SI ( That car was tits! No rice. Tuned to hell)

It really is a cool car. Granted its buttfugley. ha has had it for a few weeks now adn today after we cleaned our cars and did some work on his we decided to race them. Took him on the 1-2 gears but around the shift to 3rd he flew in from behind and it really was like I was standing still lol.

The Exhaust is loud as fuck and gives you a headach after driving on the hwy for about 10 minutes. Altho the blow off does sound mighty cool tongue

SRT-4 is about 215hp not 240hp. with a few mods the celica could easily keep up with it.

240 to the wheels? Not quite so.. 230BHP is more like it.

SRT-4 0 to 60 in under 6 secs. It would take a very tuned out Celica to beat it in a drag. But its so easy to own them on the twisties. They have a tendancy to break the inside tire loose in a tight corner. I read this, but haven't experienced it, but it stands to reason. I saw them build one up on Tuner-vision with a bigger Turbo, bigger intercooler, and a power fc, they got like 350 WHP out of it. Too bad it still looks like a Neon!

and after a few mods to the SRT-4, it'd easily lose again.

Welcome to the world of Turbos, where upping the boost psi grants instant 40hp.
