He was very helpful with everything I needed to know.

C2Power: Great customer service, excellent price, always responsive.
Great Kit and Company. I highly recommend them!

The kit was ~$3400.00 with all the upgrades at -10%. Re: Group Buy

But when it's all said and done, and before tuning ~$8k

I didn't go cheap on anything.

When this thing get installed I'll post every upgrade I have.

is that the larger intercooler or the regular one? just wondering if you are doing 'stage 1' or 'stage 2'? Sweet man, it looks awesome!

that's the stage 2 intercooler. when i get the kit installed, i will be running stage 1 at roughly 6psi. though once i get new engine & tranny internals, i'm going to go crazy with the boost! shooting for 300+hp...

sweet man, i should be getting my stage 2 in a month or so as well, it looks awesome!! BTW, the tranny internals are for GTS only, you have a GT right? SO you can't go over 14psi so you should be running around 280whp smile You need engine internals like you said BUT C2Power IS working on making the tranny internal upgrades for the 5 speed GT. Just so you know and don't buy something you can't use. Again, great buy man! Don't forget to get their LSD smile

Make sure your new engine is not stock. Celica aren't design to hold such power and therefore you need to upgrade it's engine and tranny to sustain the power safely. As far as tranny work you will end up converting it to 6-speed with C2's upgrade works in it. Also, you might need LSD and better clutch

I said about the engine upgrades and so did he spineyes just giving you shit Pnoy tongue

You could do a tranny swap but i learned you need a lot of stuff to go with it and it might cost up to an extra 5000k or more...i heard this but do not know if at all true...if it is and you have the money go for it! Also, definitly get the LSD to help with power and stuff, a better clutch you need because what happened when C2Power did a Stage 2, the clutch was stock and right away the clutch went! Also, get a light weight flywheel (get a sprung clutch to go with that) and you definitely will need bigger breaks, better suspension and the bigger breaks means bigger tires. It will run a lot of money. Around 21k with installation my friend (like i said arond 21k lol, not exact). I am doing other things like Kam body kit and lambo doors and sound system, new alarm, rear break conversion so i will be looking at a little over 25k so with yours, you should be looking around 21k or a little less. You want to protect your car so breaks and suspension is a good idea. If you get the tranny and upgrade it and you have the engine internals, 165lph fuel rail, 550cc injectors and all the other stuff, you can run up to at least 21 psi for around 360whp smile Good luck man!

rofl lol you sure you wanna spend well over 25K for your celica? I won't tongue I trade it in and with a 4K more I'd get myself a car that's build for high performance. *ehem* STI? EVO MR? G35? just to name a few...

Thanks for your feedback Andrew!

I am here, i'm just very quiet because I can't reply on work due the firewall and i'm only able to respond when i'm home. I usually forget so, that's why you don't see me here.

As always, if you have any questions... feel free to ask. If you would like to have my MSN messenger address for easy communications, hit me with a PM.

I currently have the same setup, but run 14.7 PSI. I friggin love it grin Drive carefully though. thumbsup

Holy Bajesus!

Thanks for all the replies!

Both Pnoy & TRDOTC bring up some good points.
I know it's a lot of money to get this car where I want it to be, but, I was asked the same question this last weekend at the NOPI nationals in Phoenix.
My reply was based on an individualistic viewpoint; the fact is you just don't see celica's putting down power like that everyday. Where I live you see quite a few upgraded supra's, 350z, camaro's, mustangs and all the honda makes. Yet still to this day, I would be surprised if there's another celica in my city who can outdo mine after this kit gets installed and tuned.(& my city is breaching 1-million total). I'd much rather be a big fish in a small pond then vice versa (like certain honda owners, i know). in other words, when i look at my celica, i see a car which is in the transformation of tragedy to triumph.

Your welcome Bing! I'll hit you with a PM later, as I do have a few more questions.

lol, hey Bing, can you pm me your msn messenger as well for easy communications and you never emailed me about how to pay for your LSD angry lol, let me know asap so i can get it!


Pnoy, i am far from rich but i watch what i spend and use the money wisely lol..k so that was full of bullshit lol...i do watch what i buy and i don't buy much...i graduate from college this semester and i should have a decent job when i get out (sending resume out next week). I am going for my Masters next semester as well. I am lucky to be in a good position with this but right now i am struggling cause i am racking up one of my creds and i barely have any money in one of my accounts (one i only feel like touching since i save up in the other) since i just paid over 1k to my other credit card..almost paid off though lol..loan hopefully will come near middle of next month. I plan on getting a Digital Camcorder as well so i can take nice vids too. Yeah, i plan on getting a loan from the bank, if i can't then i will have to wait longer but i have great credit so i am hoping i can get it! importmobility, i agree man but here, only one or two nice supras that i have seen (only once) and all i see are eclipses, 'tricked' out saturns, hondas and other shit boxes...and most of the celicas that i see around here are old women/men (mostly women) driving them so it will be cool driving a "money pit" lol...go for it bro!

What oother stuff did you buy, i.e boost controller, FATT, clutch, etc... and what brand and what price and where. I'm assembling a list of extra stuff for my kit and making sure I've got the money, but if everything goes right I hope to order by end of next week.

^^^LOL did he say 5hp gain from a turbo??? wow. rofl spineyes

[b] dude, this is why i would definately recommend buying your turbo kit from C2Power - you get your turbo kit.

compared to SF Tuning, how many people received their kits? not many.
compared to DA...fuck that...only a small few got that shit, and it sucks.
compared to XS...shit, this sucks too.

all three have gone out of the biz... and you can always rely on C2Power to get your stuff in a very timely manner, and theyre from europe eek

thumbsup good stuff importmobility thumbsup
