Check this out Guys/Gals

My brother wife is going to need a car. Im gonna talk to my brother if she can take over my payment and I get another car with more horsepower then my GT Auto. I was thinking about the 05 WRX grin, 05 Celica GTS thumbsup and the Scion TCidunno. It going to be a manual but I dont know which car I wanted, something with more power. Which one would you get guys/gals ?

WRX are fugly and they have a weak tranny. If you look around at msg boards, you'll read that if you add power to it, the stock tranny will die on you. Unlike the Celi where you just need a stronger clutch and that's it.

The celica thumbsdown

I'd go w/the Scion 'cuz it's got a 2.4L engine, so it's got plenty of room for improvement. You can go all TRD and get 220ish hp and it'll be covered under warrenty, plus the TC is gonna have a huge aftermarket.

Im not looking for a cheaper insurance. Im looking for a faster car. I talk to one of the guy that own a WRX 04 and he told me that the 05 has a stronger tanny. I just want something that look nice with power above 200

Still, WRX has the power. Its stock turbo, so its not like you could really push it much more after that.

tC is smeh thumbsdown. Like a Toyota RSX? Just a little bit faster than the Celica GT.

If anything else, get a GTS. thumbsup

Do a 3S-GTE swap in a Celica or MR2 if you want power. Boost Ownz Me.

wtf are you talking about. You could also go with an SRT-4. Or get a Toyota MR2 Spyder, swap in the 2zz and you got a rear wheel monster. Celica power in a light rwd car. Sounds good to me. Maybe do like the guy that put the 2zz from the elise on.

I don't know about the neons SRT-4. Neons are crappy cars. WRX a street beast thumbsup, but 30,000 some odd dollars frown. I would go for a GTS because you already have a GT. So you know what your getting into. I had always like the 3000GT VR-4. 320 twin turbo happywink. But there are allot of cars just find one that suits what you want. But good luck let me or us know what you get dude. grin thumbsup

Im not a SHE, Im a HE. I went to check out a 05 WRX it pretty nice, I also saw a red wrx. I never seen one before, it look pretty sweet. It around 26K for the wrx The GTS is alittle cheaper. I rather pay a little more with the power and awd grin. You can put more to the rear wheel drive on the 05, there a buttom on the side for it thumbsup

cool

Well, the WRX is probably a good car for you. I have a friend with one; they really like it. I have a GTS because I like more fuel mileage (WRX is down in the 20s), and the Celica is more stylish. But the WRX is a great car. I'd definitly pass on the tC.

get the wrx, it comes with a turbo already, even though you cant put much boost out, it also comes with awd.Even though i own a gts ,the celica has niether and is still pretty pricy. For the price i would get a wrx, and you can always upgrade the turbo to an sti turbo. But good luck with what ever you do
