weird. but if GM makes the Turbo i dont think we can use it. i dont know shit about Turbos, but thats wut i assume. its just our engine is the engine as that cars(which i didnt even know), but the ecu will be different, and maybe some other parts wont be easy bolt ons.

run down, GM design the body for matrix and vibe, toyota provide the motors...hence, vibe is using the 2zz-ge in the GT model...

is it hard to believe that GM is making a Turbo charger ? sure toyota built the motor but GM is improving it so does that mean it is a toyota Turbo or a GM Turbo. either way as long as the manifold bolts up Celica owners will be able to use the Turbo charger parts. just get a suel system and youll be boosting.

The Vibe is a GM badged Matrix.

I don't know what they're talking about when it comes to a Turbo option though.

It's called "tape".

It protects the lights so that they don't shatter or chip or break while you're racing, and cause problems with the other cars in the race.

Broken lights on the track is bad, bad, bad.

Are you just mad becuase a Turbo matrix will pull on you ?!?!? plus i dont understand what the big deal is. the matrix and vibe have the same motor as the GT celica. as long as the Turbo manifold fits you should be able to use the same kit on your celica. just get different piping since the engine bays are a little bit different in size. i really dont know what you guys are complaining about.

ok to clear it up


Toyota and GM partnered up for the matrix/vibe

both share each others parts in the car
for example, the radio in the matrix...is made by gm
while, the motor in both cars...is from toyota...
chassis is the same..
it's the SAME car, with different looks..
mechanical wise..all the same

The blue one is an XRS with the 2zz, but most of them do have the 1zz.
