i head pfc is the only thing that will work. the celica ecu is smart wink it adapts after a week or so and then ignores whatever you put on it. sorry buddy bu pfc is ur only good choice

Yeah, if you want something that will actually work, you have to replace the ECU. PFC is the only way to go. Or you could wait until the long awiated Hydra EMS comes out. But either way, its not gonna be cheap.

The ECU adapts and you lose all those gains. Ask Ryo how the jet worked...

JET? read this thread about this one guy who bought the jetchip. he hasnt updated us with any info because he learned the hard way that it doesnt work for too long.

also, dont buy "powerchips" they are cheap for a reason - they dont work.

your best bet is the Apexi PowerFC or the Greddy E-Manage. thumbsup

I'm assuming you have a gts by your name. It's only for a 1zz.
