Turbo questions
Hi people, I am going to purchase a Turbo kit for my 2000 Celica GTS but I think I might go with Turbo XS because my friend had a very bad experience about stafford fabrication. What do you all think about Turbo XS? I also saw the JRP is going to produce the Turbo kits for GTS. I need some suggestions here.

thanks

C2Power Stage 1. He's a nice guy anyway so I'd buy from him, and he's good, and so is his team.


I get my kicks on EC.

Ok, the stafford kit cause my friedns' car running lean, engine automatically shut down, and also cause torque converter cracking. This is what he told me so far. He is going to do costom Turbo for his car.

running lean means he's a goober and didnt tune the car like youre supposed to. thats like people who bought the power fc from mwr and complained cause they didnt get a huge peak power difference and their car ran rich.

staffords civic ran a low 13 at lacr which would be good for a high 12 at sea level. there's nothin wrong with that kit. if you dont take care of it though you wil have a problem. thats true for anything though.


if you dont get a SF kit get the c2gas kit. it's way better then XS engineering. thumbsup

Dont those flanges seem especially thick, or is it just me. Looks like a great product.
