Just to clear up some things

Hi all i am new to the site as a poster but have been viewing for some time.
There is one topic i am interestred in.

The BHP of the celicas over there in the states.I Mention this because of the post regarding the Lotus Elise and how people are confused by the increase in BHP to 190

My celica comes standard with 190 BHP ( The model of my celica is actualy badged VVTI-190).

Could you tell me what the standard BHP is on USA Models and what the 0-60 MPH is. Just curious I guess

180HP and 0-60 varies, usually 6-7seconds

It's more outside the US because of looser emissions control wave

This is to have succeeded.

10 MPH is how fast the peeps run away after you take their pink slip and car...called the "10 MPH Effect". Comes standard on most GTS' if it's got a good driver installed.

I get my kicks on EC.

I remember reading a European mag (Car?) years ago after I purchased my Celica where they were compairing the Celica 190 to a Mitsu FTO and a Vauxhall? Turbo, the third car eludes me. I was amazed that the European Celica came with as we know it the climate control, a darker grey/silver paint, and more HP. This was when I was in my barbaric days of lighting fires and smoke signals to send my friends a message. The HP difference is emissions. The other stuff is shear ignorance or how Toyota figured they could save money to the public by shaving these things for an already way overpriced car. Shame on you Toyota.

I know. I was just saying that it is nice that all of the GTS gets the extra 10HP.

technically speaking they dont "come" with 10 extra hp
its just that the us spec emission laws lowers ours 10hp as diablo said tongue

the lotus elise really does increase output by 10 whp over the american spec celica (unlike the european spec celicas).

unlike the european spec celicas, the lotus elise is emissions legal in the united states--which is due to 'tweaking'

the extra 10 whp for the european celicas over american spec celicas though, is due to looser emissions controls thumbsup
