My 00 GTS with XRS engine

Hey I bought a GTS from an auction and didnt know some moron over revved engine so i had to get new and and i bought a 03 Matrix XRS engine with only 24k miles for $1500 bucks yea its a good deal just gota shop around. I read som1 buying an engine for 4k man thats a ripoff and XRS is same engine. Well i had this car for half a year and never started it confused but i got a AEM CAI so far and lookin for some more upgrades. Im thinkin of gettin a Chip next Such as JET of GBOX dono which one help me out also lookin for exhaust system that adds most HP and isnt to loud well nice meetin you all i hope to learn a lot from this site.. sry for al the writing

Is that the 2ZZ engine? I heard for the Matrix the motor is only rated at somewhere around 175 HP instead of 180?

Yah, once you have the Celi's exhaust, Intake & computer hooked up, it will provide the full HP potential. The difference is all in tuning; the block is the same.

Cause they are resistors, and the ECU will not even recognize them.

the chips hes refering to replace actual parts of the computors (there not a resistor that goes between the maf and computor) but i was un aware that jet made them fro the celica

computor wise i would jsut do the pfc

oh and the computor will recoginize it but then re program it self to correct what it thinks is a proplem

hey thats a 20 minute phone call
