Apexi Turbo 1ZZ-FE
I've seen this turbo on several internet retailers. Prices are relatively the same (like 3500-4000, less than Blitz), product information is comparative; is this what I'm thinking?

I don't ever find this product specifically for a Celica, but there is always the engine code. I can't find anymore info on this thing than a DA Sports turbo and that product is just a laugher.

Anybody got any input?

I figured it would confuse people. Actually... here's a link to a retailer with it:

It's 1 in the morning here and I didn't really notice the "MRS" in the description. I suppose it is just a Spyder application. Hmm...

I'm sure it'll work because a 1zz is a 1zz. however the piping and things of that nature will NOT be the same. the intercoller will definitely not work either.

yah, you'd be better off getting your own kit fabricated if you get just get your hands on the turbo itself.

Definitely don't want that turbo. For a GT, I don't know if I want a turbo at all. I chose GT over GTS because of gas mileage and insurance (daily commuter to college). A couple years from now, I'm actually getting another car. Either a GTS, 350Z, or I might even look at the new Eclipse if it impresses me, which for some reason doesn't seem likely.

If anything... I think I would go supercharger. Least expensive, and it would make the car somewhat of a sleeper. Given convenient circumstances.
