Celica ECU
Well I was getting kind of curious on the TRD ECU for the celica so that I could get the supercharger hooked up.

So I called TRD and asked them about it and they said that they aren't even developing it.

Damn guy was a dick to... thumbsdown

I heard on here that TRD was devloping an ECU for the celica so that we could hook the TRD Supercharger up to the celicas.

One of the guys on here said that it was going to be released at like the end of october or early november.

So I thought that something was going on but I guess I was wrong.

they wouldn't since the celica won't be in production for the states and a majority of the owners for the GT will not be buying it to make it fit.

BUT, because the celica is stopping production, TRD should get more parts out for it

Just use something like the PowerFC or E-Manage. Should be much more powerful than some TRD junk.

i would think it will be a little worthless to get a supercharger if you trying to keep ur car under warranty. its still gonna be out of warranty cz you changing the ecu or tuning it.
if thats wut you guys are going for, then dont do it. if you just going for supercharger power, then thats cool. but i myself would spend that money on a turbo kit and modding the engine a bit. ur choice though, you made the decision and good luck and let us know wutsup. ur gonna have one unique car for sure!

if you want economical power why would you boost it at all? stay stock or N/A get I/E or I/H/E and forget about it smile
