Turbo and Nitrous?
im pretty new to most of these upgrades but would a Turbo at 6-8 psi and a 50 shot of nitrous be to much? and if i plan on getting a nitrous system what parts should i upgrade first? Please be as specfic as possible.

I can't be specific. Turbo kits for our stock engines are pushing the limits already w/out any other work. Even with your GT, a Turbo kit at max psi, and nitrous you will need extensive work to your engine. You will need also a new clutch, better brakes, and tires just to start. You will be stressing things on a Celica that were never meant to be pushed like that. I'm sure someone else here will get into the details.

Since you have a 2k2 GT, Turbo options are more available for you, For running nitrous on a stock engine I would run a wet system 75 shot max, after that your gonna need to upgrade your internals to avoid blowing shit up. A good choice from experiance is a ZEX system or nitrous express. If your running the Turbo your already going to need the controller and new fuel maps, running Turbo and nos will require definiter internals upgrades, as well with ignition, oil pump, fuel pump, fuel rail, injectors, cam gears, etc...For them to both run kosher together. All that nitty gritty stuff with timing and spark advance and that good stuff. Stuff a professional shop should take care of.

dude, if it were me, i would go with one or the other... even considering that the gt has a lower compression rate, you still wont be ablke to run em both without spending mucho dollars to build up ur manifols, piston rings,omg basically everything about the engine..honestly it would b cheaper if you got another car, if ur goin for the fast thing..i have the TNT Nitrous Express kit,, and it works fine for me. plenty of power thumbsup
