the 2ZZ in the GTS is 11.5:1 compression.

The default boost levels on the kit should be streetable.

get C2gas...there have been many complaints with xs...some people have been waiting 10 months to get theirs. c2gas will get it to you in 7 days...plus i hear their customer service is excellent! thumbsup

compression ratio has a lot of factors not just because you get turbo you need to change them. However, for higher boost it is a must, but why open up an engine and just put pistons, just get familiar with having turbo; then spend an extra 1200- 2000 to build the whole engine.

thats what i was thinking but after i get used to the turbo i definately want to up the boost but i know a low psi is streetable on the factory setup but is 8:8:1 a good boosting ratio to change it to?

6 psi on GTS i more than enough... any higher will break the tranny anyway.
if you really want more, then yes, 8.8:1 pistons are the way to go

I think if you're going to reinforce the internals you should go with 9:1, 8.8:1 or 8.5:1 are usually stock boost compressions for turbo cars and since most of them upgrade to a 9:1 compression, it's probably better to go straight for the 9:1. It may seem a little high, but the compression well give you better overall performance for street use. Not too sure on the boost settings but I wouldn't boost any more then maybe 18-22psi at most for racing at the track, and maybe 12-15psi for the street.

XS still has problems with cracking manifolds even after they upgraded to the new cast iron ones that werent supposed to crack. What does that tell you about the quality of their kits. On top of that, their customer service is bad. They ignore their customers with problems. On top of that, people have been waiting almost a year since time of order to get their kits. Also if you want to run higher boost you need to do a lot more than just get low comp pistons. Beefing up the entire engine wouldnt be a bad idea and you would definately need a new tranny.

If you're planing to boost you may also want to upgrade your fuel system, w/ a bigger pump and injectors. Maybe upgrading the ignition system somehow would be good too, but there's not much to do there since our cars use coil packs, so there's no distributor or wires to upgrade, maybe one of those ignition amplifiers would work.

injectors aren't a necessity (but a good idea) for the c2 kit. c2's customer service is amazing. i've been working out some stuff with Gas and his crew for the past few days. they're doing everything possible to accomodate my situation, a definate go.

does anyone have a direct link to post for c2 so i could look at their item because right now i really like xs's setup with the apexi power fc and the ball bearing turbo if c2 gas is anything like that then maybe i will go with them-i was wondering how to upgrade our ignition and whether i should replace the ngk plugs with zex plugs since i will be using zex n20 and who makes a good ignition amplifier?

if you want good plugs, i hear denso's are the best. c2's website is www.c2power.com . they use a Garret t28 in their kits, which is good for overall power and I4 apps. as far as ECU goes, they use the Greddy E-manage piggy-back unit with pretuned maps.

^^^ Yes they seem to be the best as far a turbo goes for the Celica. Can't wait to i get it in my car eek eek

XS and stafford Customer Service sucks. C2Gas is the only way to go. Check out the "other site" to lean a lot about them. thumbsup

XS blows. if you're gonna up the boost you'll want to upgrade your oil pump along with everything else. the stock one is a definite weak point of the engine.

i have heard our radiator and oil pump are the weakest points of the engine and as far as xs i dont think that is the right system for me with my automatic since it has the power fc-ive been looking at that c2 turbo kit it puts out better numbers and i have heard a lot of good things about c2 and its also cheaper if my truck sells soon then i think i'll be runnin a turbo celly soon---a 40 minute drive i guess thats not so bad anyway do you meet up with other celica drivers sometimes if you do let me know i'll try and come out

C2 takes 8 days, that is the timeframe when the kit shipped from hungary to cali. 8 months is SF turbos.

I dont work for stafford nor have I ordered one so I dunno how long it's taking.

I like the sf kits so to me it's the one I would get personally.

but at the same time either is infinitely better then the xs kit smile

you know stage 2 is simply stage 1 + internals. If stage 2 isnt available then buy the internals someplace else and just get stage 1. then you'll actually have stage 2 smile

I think it is even cheaper to just buy the stage one and then talk to MWR here in the states for the internals. Someone correct me if i am wrong? thumbsup

i like cheaper so i would do that but internals are like another 3 grand so that would be very far in the future if i did that after the tubo i am going with that koya radiator and i will try to find a performance oil pump since those are the 2 weakest points of our engines i wanna get them fixed and better

Yes you are right and for US costumers we just help how to upgrade as we also import the internals from the US. It is basically for he EU contries who can get the internals cheaper form us. It would be stupid to buy them from us if yu live in the US. I suggest MWR for the st2 parts.
