VVTL-i with turbo vs. super charger

Sup yall,

I was wondering about something... Since turbos (XS Engineering and independant turbo makers) and Blitz superchargers are out now and readily available, plus the new TRD supercharger that just came out... what are the effects to the engine, hows does it feel, i imagine vvtl-i boost plus a turbo boost would be insane, like double boost, i wonder what it feels like. jeez that must be good feeling. I bet it has a lot of added strain on the engine. I this a wise investment? i hear the new TRD supercharger doesnt fit the celica because of the space and Hood factor. I hope they come out with one made to fight the GT. maybe we'd keep up and add to some good races.

Any idea on celica's years to come? would they make it come with one..thatd be cool


What do you guys think, any opinion is welcome... check ya guys lata

celica fan,

Tyler


always dreamin of new celica parts!!

  • Both, the Blitz Super-charger and the XS Engineering Turbo kit for the GTS are available.
  • Effects? It shortens the life of your engine.
  • How does it feel? I'm sure both feel totally AWESOME.
  • Wise investment? my opinion, unless you plan to sell the car after boosting it, no it is not a wise investment. But would i do it? YES.
  • Ideas on the next celica? Wait till the Internation auto show(?) in october which will be in Toyko, Japan. That is when Toyota will reveil the 2005 celica and supra.

the TRD supercharger is not designed for the celica. it won't fit under the Hood properly.

It would fit if you made a custom manifold for it, or got an aftermarket Hood with enough clearance. it won't fit under the stock Hood, as it'll sit level with the cylinder head.

it's for the 1ZZ anyways, not made for the GTS

I'd go with Blitz, you'll need new pistons too to lower compression (I think the Blitz setup works on stock internals, tho)

I'd have to go with the turbo kit. Nonetheless, both are AWESOME kits!
