There is really a lot of engine mods for our cars except I/H/E and simple drivetrain upgrades (clutch, flywheel
etc..)

good morning rip van winkle. welcome to 2004. had you used the little searchy button or looked at half the posts on this page you'd have all the answers.

1) forget N/A you want power go boosted with something like the SF kit and buy a power fc for the management. You';; make more power then you'll need.

2) there are no cams.

3) check out http://www.monkeywrenchracing.com for all your internals. I myself already picked up the valves and vale springs which allow you to rev higher safer. they are also each 3 grams lighter then stock.

It all depends on what budget you're workin with and how far you wanna go. if you want the traditional I/E go with TPR cause they so fare have the best proven results.

thats my .02 got any more questions feel free to PM me or use the searchy button. thumbsup

Wellll, TPR might put out a turbo kit wink, but seeing as I am an N/A fan, that will come first...if theres enough demand for a turbo kit ill look into designing one.

I heard that with the APEX Power FC you can't really get a lot of hp. out of celica's.. you can get a lot more from hondas.. one of my friend its got an 93 Hatch with a GSR motor.. only with the APEX Power FC he got +15hp at the wheels. I've allready talked with a guy here.. who's got a 01 GTS with the APEX Power FC profesionally tuned he's got only 7 hp. at the wheels.. DIFFERENCE AA?

no, one person almost everyone knows here has gotten 15whp. you got to figure who does the tuning and for what purpose they are aiming for such as street or all out strip with 100 octane unleaded.

I get my kicks on EC.

hehe you're talkin peak power. which I personally got more then 15 peak power smile but I also gained close to 35 whp in the midrange and torque to match.

You also need to remember that not many people work with celicas a lot so "professionally tuned" is really a relative statement. I don't own a shop so my car was NEVER "professionally tuned" just me and my teamates using a laptop and a dyno lol

using the same tuning we have 3 N/A celicas running high 8's in the 1/8 mile. but hey don't take my opinion to seriously cause I'm not a professional after all thumbsup

Instead of wasting all your money on performance mods, why not just buy a car thats already fast. Trade in your 2000 GTS for a 1995 M3 Evo and use the change for the extra insurance.
