2000 Celica Auto Piggyback

I have a 2000 Celica GTS Auto, and I was wondering what you guys would recommend putting in it to make it a decent bit faster since it is an automatic. Someone told me to get a piggyback chip but i can't seem to find one except those gay ones for 10 bucks on ebay, any suggestions?

Yeah the only one that will work for the auto is the e-Manage. If your going to get one get your mods first then get this since you want to tune the e-Manage to suit your mods. thumbsup

I'm thinking of just putting Intake exhaust and the piggyback. Is there a way of turning on and off hte piggyback or is it always on (I heard it kills gas and gas is about $2.50 a gallon :-()? Is it recommended to put on an auto? And how would you recommend programming them since i am a newbie to car tuning?

You would need to have it tuned by a shop that knows what they are doing. Tuning is the most important thing on a car. If you have i/e and tune a piggy back for that you're looking at like 15 whp tops.

that's the problem if you have an auto. Shifting is controlled by the ECU, and you take that entire thing out when you install the PFC. The only option for an auto is a piggyback.

I saw what you are talking about but I belive it was some ourtrageous price like 1800.

For anyone interested http://www.brashboy.net/e/index.html . I doubt it works for autos though honestly.
