Power FC 03+ #363416 Jan 1, 6:25pm Jan 1, 6:25pm

Power FC 03+
My understanding is that 03 and up Celicas do not work with the Power FC. Is there an alternative option, or a way to circumvent this incompatibility? If not, is there anything coming up on the horizon that will give later model Celicas similar performance/tuning capabilities?

the power fc DOES NOT work with 03-05 celicas.

the only way to get around it and make the power fc work is to convert to a 2000-2002 throttle cable setup. it's quite lengthy and expensive.

I think it is that some of the 03's have dbw and some dont.

yeah the GT's do not have DBW. so yes the power fc will work. however nobody has done an N/A version of the GT with power fc so nobody really knows what kinda gains/benefits you'll get.

MWR did a base map and gained like 7whp. but if it's anything like the GTS base map you can get quite a few more with fine tuning. thumbsup

N/A = "Naturally Aspirated"

Generally it means, not turbocharged, not supercharged, and not using nitrous oxide (NOS).
