I just have a few newbie questions.
For a GT on 12 psi boost creating 251 whp, how much would this huge increase in power effect a celica? Also, with Intake
, exhaust, etc., is it expected that total horsepower may be near 270+?
Lastly, how much would it cost to upgrade the internals so you could be almost completely safe running at higher psi's?
If anyone knows, i would greatly appreciate their information. Thanks!
The internals that you really need for a Turbo, is mainly Piston rings, if you don't have those, you'll fuck up your car, You'll also need the manifold o-rings swapped with stronger ones, otherwise you'll blow those too. Pretty much that's the only internals you'll need to fix.
As far as aftermarket goes, you want to make sure you have a good intercooler, Intake
, and a blow-off valve for a turbo.
The cost for a COMPLETE turbo Upgrade on a bone-stock celi including things like exhaust,headers,Intake
and so on, could cost anywhere between 8-10G's, so start saving up your money. those of you who already have half of all these mods are halfway there!
