3" exhaust. And I suggest internals if you have the money.

nevermind we were talking about 2 different things...the shop im having all this done at is moving to a bigger building in a few months. when they move they will have room to do full tear downs and do internal stuff, but they cant right now. i was just wanting to know what i could do in the mean time. i was just wondering if there is anything i could do in the meantime that is beneficial to a system with a turbo in it. (obviously all performance parts are going to help in the power aspect..i mean wear and durability)..i hope that makes sense and im not just rambling on confused

You could get a new clutch and flywheel put in. Start breaking those in before the turbo. Get a custom exhaust made. Thats about it.

^^^ also you could get a power fc. it will maximize your turbo gains and make tuning much easier

lucky, what about the emanage that comes with the C2 Turbo...there isn't any need for the Power FC then right?

I thought they swithed to the power fc after all?? I dunno though could be wrong.

I don't think the emanage has the same tuning capabilities as the power fc. could be wrong but I just dont like the idea of trying to use these piggy backs.

yeah, but the emanage is obd-ii compliant, the power fc isn't. So it's pretty much the only option if you want to stay legal right?

Yeah, it depends on the state you're in. Everything is illegal in Cali.

hmmm. well in that case I guess you wouldnt have a choice lol you'll get a lot moer power from the power fc. but if you wanna stay legal as guess it doesnt leave you many options.

we have some rediculous rules here as well...can't tint that much, you can't have underglow lights, can't have exhaust too loud (yet it is ok for Harleys?? I am still confused on that one lol) and so much other crap it is really annoying. Thought we were one of the only states with dumb rules...Florida rocks...barely any illegal shit there for cars thumbsup I still have yet to head out West...I can't wait!

lets see... out here lowering a celica is illegal. because the way they measure it, a stock celica could technically NOT pass if you had 1-2 passengers. so even a 1" drop would be well into the illegal range.

talk about crappy lol we have some of the most strict rules in the world here in cali. thumbsdown

start off by giving someone else that ridiculously nice paint job of yours. My god that chamelion looks sweet!! Then i would buy the stuff to beef it up now,so when the time is right you can put everything in at once. New crankshaft, cams, rockers and arms, valves, pistons and the works.
