rear wheel conversion?
anyone know of any good websites or somewhere that does this? i really want a rwd you can have more hp and better control TRD says that with a fwd daily driver you should max out at 230 hp because of the wheel grab... any tips? thanks!

limited slip diffrential...it will hold past 230 hp...most of the Turbo celica GT's push around 250 HP. RWD would be a custom job from your local race and fabrication shop...probably to the tune of 10,000 - 15,000 dollars for the conversion

well if the matrix is the same chassis as the celica, which i doubt, you can use the drivetrain since the matrix also comes in awd

Not that easy ikin, The celica's unibody will need will need an entire redesign underneath to accomidate the drive train, Also the firewall and the rear suspension mount's will also need some work.

new accord v6 has more than 230 hp...civic type-r Turbo in japan passes 230 hp easy... so I doubt it'll max out at 230 hp as FF car...

hey i got an idea! (smarty!) they adjusted the wheel grab on the fwd 250+ hp...what ya think about that! LOL havent you noticed that even stock it pulls to the right when you start to accelerate? its because only one wheel is spinning...celica doesnt have positraction lol i suppose maybe you could ad it then huh? it sure would help with getting more hp and being able to control it on a daily basis. what do you think?
