if you have joined the GB on C2 last yr you would only spend less than that. way less. plus all you have to do is pay the initial installment of 500 buck via wire trnsfer then you can pay up the rest.

Man you saved up a lot in a short amount of time. is it 4000$ just for parts and everything or is that including the installation.

if you are running at 5 psi.. tuning wouldn't be a lot. If you start increasing the boost then you wallet's gonna start feeling the pain grin

st1 should be around 5K+ with the upgrade of clutch, flywheel, parts and misc, labor, and tunning. ofcourse labor can be saved if you install it yourself.

if you increase the boost you will also increase your expenses. engine upgrades, possible tranny upgrade depending on the amount of boost.

there's a guy in new celica dor org who's selling is c2 st1 for 3K with i believe 1K miles on it. the price is still high but if you can negotiate with him, i guess he can lower it. if that was around 2800, i would thing it's reasonable

too bad if you can't go in the new*celica.org website. Bing is getting interested buyers on a possibile 2nd GB.
