This is something which you guys seem to avoid talking about... " The 2000cc stroker Kit". I think this mod is very good cause increasing displacemnt is key to HP and torque gain. And as the saying goes " there is no replacement for displacement".
If we want to compete with the Big Dogs like the mustangs, corvettes or even skyline and supras we need to look at forced induction and stroking.
give me all your knowledge and insights with pics and details about installing the stroker kits as well as the manufacturers for the Celica GTS stroker kit... the only one I know of is Brash Boy's stroker kit.
No, you need to look into a new car.
Your FWD 1.8L Toyota econobox will never be the same as the "Big Dogs".
OK, fine, you stroke it out to 2.0L. Then what? Turbo? Fine, Turbo. Now you have $0, a 2.0L FWD 2ZZ-T, and absolutely no traction under any conditions. Have fun creating a custom suspension setup that will counter all of the torque steer that you WILL be experiencing. Don't forget to buy a few beefed up transmissions, they won't last long.
A 2.0L 2ZZ-T is not the same as the 4G63. And it never will be. Once you are at the limit of the 2ZZ, the 4G63 is just getting started. By the time you performed every last possible modifcation to the 2ZZ, the 4G63 could triple your power output. Just because two motors have the same displacement and layout does not make them the same. The 4G63 was built to make power, the 2ZZ was built to get good gas mileage.
The Celica is not a racecar, leave it that way.
