There are many things.

Exhaust
Header
Intake
Cams (will be out end of the year...hopefully)
Pullies
Clutch/Flywheel
Suspension mods
Weight reduction
Port And Polishing
Power FC
Don't know if the SAFC is good for the GT
Tires
Internal work...pistons
Then...Nitrous, Turbo

I have a 2000 celica gt 5spd. I have a AEM CAI, hotshot header, borla exhaust, jet chip, and b&m short throw. I am pleased with its performance.

I have the same situation as booyaolian. Just quick guess do you know what the cost is for some of these mods not all of course like the chip and exhaust and such. Sorry booy kinda curous about this don't mean to be taking over your post. spineyes

Don't think the celica is some fast hardcore drag racing car. It's nothing of that sort. It's designed for the turns. If I had a GT, I would do the full suspension setup first and foremost.

thats way too expensive but if you really want to make your celica into a street car its not too bad
