there are members from So.Cal who could do it for you at a good price also thumbsup

I would also NOT buy a XS turbo kit. they are junk.

the only good kits out right now are the SF kit and The C2gas kit.

the SF kit will have a longer delay before shipping then the C2gas kit. But both are great ways to go. thumbsup thumbsup

expecially a celica turbo, you either have to pull the engine or drop the front axle

there's nothing wrong with the kit itself. just takes sometime to get the kits shipped. thumbsup

If you get a turbo, keep me updated, because I'd love one in my car. I'm just affraid of destroying the engine with having too much boost.
I mean, damn, why does it have to cost like $5000 to upgrade a stock Celica engine to take a 9psi boost from a $5000 turbo? (I'm just throwing numbers out there.) That's a ton of money for like 60 more hp. cry
