don't be foolish turbo!!!

its not worth the gain with a sc plus sc's are that benifical as if it were on a v6 or 8 the turbo is what you should do if ur gonna don anyone!!! make sure to look into eip!!! they claim to be puttin more ponies out than xs!!! but only time will tell on that one!!!

Hah, hey guys.

Where can I find more information about the turbos you're talking about?

Oh yah, are the turbo kits you guys speak of, fittable in the Celica's current engine space, or modification are needed?

Hmm...

Turbo's and superchargers are two entirely different animals. Turbos have high peak hp but superchargers have a nice even broad power curve.

ya but the turbo has a pretty good power curve since these are small turbos that spool up very quickly, below 2500rpm, so really stuff like turbo lag doesnt really matter. And since we do have high compression, the high compression actually allows for faster spooling.

If I had the money, then I'd go with these guys. 320 whp at 14 lbs boost. Nice. Again, my only dream for my car is smoke a Vette. This would do it.

And here's where you can read more about it. Click on the Dyno sheet link if you don't believe me. Say hello to boost, VVTL-i, and kiss your internals goodbye!!

turbos are known for more maintenance and sc for dependability. turbos for peak power and sc for no "turbo lag" and broader performance band. you can think of the differences between the AEM and Injen CAI only on a much greater and complex scale.

In another thread, I just posted independent dyno runs from both, an XS turbocharged Celica GTS and a Blitz supercharged GTS. You can check them out here...
